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
