House Teams

Fostering Team Spirit

Each child is allocated a house on joining our school and will stay in the same house throughout their time at Bracken Leas. We aim to ensure that new pupils will follow their siblings through the same house. Children will be able to earn points individually towards their house total, but also develop their teamwork and collaboration skills across year groups. This is through whole-school tasks and competitions across a wide variety of activities including sports, arts and academics too. The outcome being the development of a house-team spirit across all age groups from Early Years to Year 6.

The Teams

  • Ellesmere (red)
  • Beaumont (blue)
  • Egerton (yellow)
  • Thompson (purple)
  • Bridgewater (orange)
  • Quincey (green)

Year 6 House Captains are selected by their peers at the beginning of the school year. They work hard to foster team spirit, collect and collate house points and lead their teams at sports days.

The Bracken Leas Cup is awarded by combining all the individual house points children earn over the academic year, along with the scores from termly house competitions and the KS1 & KS2 sports days in the summer.
