At St. Andrew’s School, the House System is an integral part of school life, designed to promote and reinforce good behaviour, positive work habits, and achievement. Every child is placed in a House when they start in the Reception year and siblings are usually placed in the same House.
Through this system, pupils have an opportunity to earn recognition for themselves, as well as understand how participation and being part of a larger group can reap rewards, along with the benefits of friendly, healthy competition.
St. Andrew’s pupils understand that to have a successful House, everyone has to give their best and every house point counts.
There are four Houses at St. Andrew’s School:
At the beginning of the academic year, two pupils are elected at House Captains of each House. Regular House meetings allow House Captains to encourage their members to greater efforts in all things and to focus on particular areas for improvement.
House points are added together weekly and the House with the most points at the end of each half-term win a free Tag Day (where they can wear their own clothes to school) and have their name engraved on the prestigious house point shield.
