House Events and Competitions

Throughout the year, a whole host of competitions, events, games and activities between Houses take place and every pupil is encouraged to get involved as much as possible. There is something for everyone (sports, art, debating, chess, general knowledge, music etc) and they allow pupils to become more involved in their House community, develop their skills, forge new friendships and have fun. These include House Music Competition (Autumn Term), Yeo and Pearl Cups (Autumn Term) and Stars in their Eyes (Spring 2014).
