Introducing Houses

This morning Whitegate End launched a new system of house teams.
This page tells you all about the house system.

What are the houses called?

The four Whitegate End houses are named after the roads that surround the school. Our house names are:

Broadway House
Butterworth House
Hollinwood House
Semple House

Who is included in the house system?

Everyone is included, all staff and pupils are assigned to a house for the duration of their time at Whitegate End. In future children and staff will be assigned to their house as they enrol in school

What are the houses for?
The houses are teams that work across the school to encourage and support each other. Teams for sports day will be our house teams and houses will meet together throughout the year, giving a great opportunity for younger and older children to get to know each other and work together.

What about house badges, mottos & captains?
Each house needs to design their own badge and come up with a motto, children have until Friday 20th January to submit their ideas.
House captains will be chosen from children in year 6.

Do houses have a website page?
Yes they do!
Look on the 'Pupil Groups' page of the children's section for the house pages - or click here.
Children and staff will update these pages with mottos and badges as soon as they have been decided.
