House Pages


The junior school have four houses and this year they have been re-named after the ships: Matthew, Waverley, SS Great Britain and Balmoral. Each house has chosen it’s own Year 6 house captains and vice captains. Prospective candidates gave speeches to their houses and the children democratically elected their captains and vice captains. Well done to all who put themselves forward and congratulations to:



Matthew House: Elspeth and Tom, Katie and Oli

SS Great Britain House: Helena and Josh Sophie and Jamie

Waverley House: Lucy and Alex Holly and Kevin

Balmoral house: Mabel and Alex Gracie and Harrison


The houses will hold fundraising events for the charity Action Aid – each house supports a child in

another country. Please click on your house to find out more.  The houses also compete at school sporting events and in the school annual


The houses will meet at “Crew” meetings and each house has four Crews – North, South, East and West. Each Crew has a designated member of staff who will stay with them over the year. The first Crew meetings were held last week and the children loved having the opportunity to get together as a mixed age range family group consisting of a few children from each year group. They will meet again in a few weeks time to agree a Crew Charter for collaborative working and team-building.
