School Houses

Our school is split into four houses named after the missionaries Eric Liddell, Gladys Aylward, John Wesley and Alexander Crummel. The children can win house points for good work and behaviour and the winning house each term celebrates with a special treat! Throughout the year, there are a number of inter-house sports competitions culminating in our annual sports day where the house with the greatest number of points wins a trophy.  Every year, four house captains in Year 6 are elected by the younger children in each house and take ownership of the direction and focus for that year, including the choice of charity. House points are collected every week and a running total can be found on the Stars of the Week and House Points page on this website.
