Penns House System
At Penns our children are sorted into the following houses:
The names of our houses are taken from the many pools within Sutton Park.
As children enter Penns primary they are allocated a house; they will also be placed within the same house as their sibling. We believe that our house system provides our children with a sense of belonging on top of the safety and security already provided within the school.
We hold annual events to further consolidate our sportsmanship and love of team building:
|Autumn 1||Cross Country||Powells|
|Autumn 2||Geography Quiz||Powells|
|Spring 1||Cheer Competition||Bracebridge|
|Spring 2||Book Quiz||Powells|
|Summer 1||Show Choir|
|Summer 2||Fun in the Sun|
At Penns we celebrate the successes of all our students who strive to achieve their best in all aspects of their life in school. The House System gives our students this opportunity to be rewarded for efforts and achievement in all areas. Students regularly earn learning points for excellent work but the primary aim is to encourage all students to get involved in the many inter-house competitions within subjects and extra-curricular activities.
Each house has both house captains and vice captains who have been voted for by their fellow students. Students are involved in running the termly house meetings thus promoting student leadership and responsibility.
Competition between the Houses is fierce and always very close and exciting.
