The house system

One of the characteristics of the Copthill Learner is the ability to be a team player. Pupils from Reception to Year 6, and all members of staff, are proud to belong to one of the four school houses.

​During house events, pupils wear a house badge on their blazer or sports shirts, in the colour of their house.  Relationships between older members of each house are strengthened because pupils in Years 4 - 6 sit with their housemates whilst they eat lunch.  Year 6 House Captains are elected by their teachers.

House points are collected by pupils in Years 4 - 6 for their team, and there is always great excitement when the winner of the House Points Shield is announced at the end of every term.

House events promote togetherness and a spirit of friendly competition, including,

  • House picnics
  • Singing competitions
  • Chess tournaments
  • Spelling Bees
  • Sports tournaments, including Siege and Tug of war
