At Tirlebrook we have four houses:
Each house is led by two Year 6 children who are elected as House Captains in Autumn Term.
This year's House Captains are:
Beauchamp - Martha Simpson & Matthew Janes
Hastings - Aaron Lyon & Samuel Whatmore
Montague - Rose Carey-Owen & Isabelle Fisher
Wenlock - Charlotte Peirce & Gracie Janes
All our children belong to one of these houses and work hard each week to earn house points. House points form part of our rewards system and can be earned for academic achievement and behaviours above those normally expected. The house that earns the most points each week is presented with the house cup in our celebration assembly on a Friday afternoon. Their house colour ribbons are tied to the cup and it goes on display in our school hall for the week.
At the end of each school year the house that has won the cup the most times throughout the school year is awarded the house cup shield. Their house name is engraved on the shield and it goes on display in our trophy cabinet.
Each Friday our children are involved in house harmony when they come together to explore new activities.
The children also take part in house activities like quizzes and house huddles. They also spend time in their houses during House Harmony time.
