When children join our school, they are allocated a place in one of four houses, named after inspirational people who have achieved various successes and all shown great aspiration.
Houses were nominated by children and are:
Children collect house points, for demonstrating our school values and achieving a variety of successes. Each house is led by a house captain and a vice captain who are chosen by their teammates.
Please note that children require a PE shirt in their house colour, which means teams are ready made for games lessons. If you are not sure which house your child is in, your child’s teacher will be able to tell you.

Marcus Rashford is a professional footballer who plays for Manchester United and England. In March 2020, during the UK lockdown, Rashford teamed up with the poverty and food waste charity FareShare to deliver meals to those in the Greater Manchester area who were no longer receiving their free school meals, as well as to children who attended community centres and school breakfast clubs.
Rashford decided to fully support FareShare and set an initial target of supporting 400,000 children in the region. The initiative quickly raised over £20 million to provide food for children nationwide who would be receiving free school meals if they were at school. The charity managed to provide millions of meals across the country during the campaign.
