Bowerhill Primary School Learning & Education

House System

When children join our school, they are allocated a place in one of four houses, named after a famous scientist and with a specific house colour. These are Anning (yellow), Darwin (blue), Faraday (red), and Newton (green).

Children collect house points, for good work, which are celebrated in our Friday celebration assembly. The house with the most points at the end of the year wins the House Point Cup.

Please note that children require a PE shirt in their house colour, which means teams are ready made for games lessons.

Her findings contributed to important changes in scientific thinking about prehistoric life and the history of the Earth. (Source: Wikipedia)
