The role of House Captain is one of privilege, pride and responsibility. They are more than just a title and badge and require dedication and commitment for an entire year. The children take part in active citizenship, whereby they lead a series of assemblies to support the children throughout the school and their house, alongside the pinnacle of leading their team to possible victory at our inter-house sports day, at the end of each year.
House Captains are elected by the children in their House after giving a speech about what they can offer their House. All children in all years submit their votes in secret for their chosen House Captains.
There is a boy and girl House Captain selected for each house. Each Captain will be different and will contribute an assortment of skills and ideas to the job.
