School House System

On entry to the school, each student will be allocated a ‘House’ (members of the same family will be placed in the same house.) We always seek a balance of male and female students in each one. 

The House names and colours are as follows: 

  • Normans - red
  • Saxons - green
  • Romans - blue
  • Vikings - yellow


The House system comprises two parts: 

  • a Merit system where students gain House points for individual awards relating to their progress and efforts in all aspects of school life. 
  • inter-house competitions such as sports days, swimming galas, poetry and music competitions

The whole school is involved in the merit system and each teacher and assistant teacher will be part of a House. There will be regular House assemblies held throughout the year and the first meeting elects house captains for each House (one boy and one girl).

Merit Certificates 

At BCB, we believe that great efforts should be rewarded and recognised. With this in mind, we have a House point system designed to encourage high standards and positive action from our students throughout the year. House points, therefore, will only be awarded when students do their very best. 

During the year, students will be awarded House points for excellent work, effort, progress and good citizenship. Teachers award points to each student when deserved and it is the responsibility of the student to enter their House points on the chart displayed in the class. This can be a coloured square or a tick alongside a name; there will be no negative actions such as minus house points. Certificates will be awarded in assembly to successful students.
