House Captains

Each year we choose 2 House Captains per house.

The HCs are nominated by staff and are sought from the Y6 cohort. The pupils do not have any say in who is to be nominated.


Following nomination the staff are asked to vote (if needed) on the nominees in order to elect the 8 HCs (the HT has the casting vote should there be a tied vote). Any member of staff with a ‘conflict of interest’ is not allowed to vote.

Should a ‘winning pupil’ wish to decline the position the pupil (in the same house) receiving the next highest number of votes is asked to assume the role. 


The aim of a House Captain: To provide an outstanding role-model for other pupils by upholding the whole-school Code of Conduct.


The nominees are expected to be pupils who:


  • Demonstrate positive leadership ability/skills
  • Are good role models for other pupils (behaviour/conduct/attitude)
  • Show initiative
  • Demonstrate good organisational skills
  • Communicate effectively and are able to speak to House members confidently
  • Demonstrate pride in the school
  • Are polite and trustworthy
  • Are kind, compassionate and caring
  • Have a proven record of the above throughout their time in school.

HCs will be asked to:

  • Total monthy house points (and fortnightly mid-month totals)
  • Encourage House members to earn points and be proud of their achievements
  • Meet with visitors and welcome them to the school (conduct school tours)
  • Promote the School ethos and Code of Conduct

The role of HC is an ‘earned privilege’.
