Houses at the Prep

We believe in healthy competition and the sense of belonging.  Every child when they start at the school, is allocated a House at the Sorting Ceremony at the beginning of the school year.  This is a wonderful occasion where each new pupil is welcomed into their chosen House with open arms.

The school has four Houses:  Fry, Brunel, Hepworth and Scott.  Each term, two Year 8s are House Captains and help lead the House with a team of passionate and partisan staff.  It is our intention, that everyone supports one another within each House and forms another pastoral filter for the children.

With House assemblies, various competitions ranging from Scrabble, Chess, debating, swimming gala, Sports Day and the core sports, points are won throughout the term for these events and of course academic progress and effort.  Good citizenship also adds points to the House Cup which is awarded at the end of each term.  The winning House celebrates their victory with a fine feast!
