House System at HTPD

At HTPD we use the house system to encourage pupils to invest in the life of the school. This system provides opportunities for friendly competition and showcasing talents, it is a positive way of recognizing and celebrating pupils' contributions. It also enables children from across the year groups to get to know each other and work collaboratively. The children are put into one of four houses, each one being named after a chosen hero. There are events throughout the year which aim to cater for all tastes, these include: netball, football, cricket, cross country, table tennis, stacking, mathsmagic, chess, music medley, public speaking, art and dance. The houses also meet together regularly at house assemblies and spend a whole week together during the Summer term for Curriculum Week. Below are the four houses and a short explanation of why we chose these people to be our heroes. Emily oversees the House System at the Juniors and Catherine at the Infants.
