Inspiring a community

Our House System


The Widney logo celebrates our House system identity with the 4 trees – Ash, Beech, Chestnut and Oak. All of these trees can be found within our wonderful school grounds.

In September, the whole school community elects a boy and a girl from Year 6 to be the House Captains for each team. These children have the responsibility of being positive role models for their team and to organise “House” events throughout the year. These include the markets for our Charity Week in February, sporting events throughout the year including the legendary “Pancake Race” and also our Sports Afternoon which concludes our well-being week in July.

A boy and a girl are also elected to be Widney’s Head Boy and Girl. They work alongside the House Captains and represent the school at public events throughout the year.

Look at our school logo. Can you identify the different houses from the symbol?

Our House Captains have the responsibility of being positive role models for all of the children in their house. Throughout the year, the House Captains organise team activities, special celebrations and represent the school at different events.
