At St James we have four houses and the children are allocated to one when they join the school. The children are given house points for good behaviour and being a good role model for others. We also elect eight house captains from Y6 in September who lead their houses throughout the year. We run inter-house competitions every half-term, ranging from a Quiz to an Easter Bake-Off. We also run a number of house sports events, ending with Sports Day in the summer.
Our Houses are named Ellis, Reffold, Tilson and Young. The names were selected, with help from the School Council, in July 2018, ready for the start of the next academic year. The Houses are named after four former pupils of the school who sadly lost their lives in World War 1. We felt that, in the centenary year of the end of the war, it was the perfect way to comemorate the fallen. George Charles Ellis, George Reffold, Ernest Tilson and Harold Young; we will remember them.
