Children are placed in one of four houses when they join the school - siblings are always in the same house.

    Each of the four houses are named after one of the founding families of the school. There are inter-house competitions throughout the school year, house points are awarded for good work and good behaviour and each house hosts a whole-school fundraising event for a chosen charity.

    Mental Health Research UK

    Honey Pot Charity 

    Honey Pot Charity is a children’s charity that offers both respite breaks and outreach support to young carers and vulnerable children aged 5-12, many of whom would otherwise have nowhere to turn.

    Honeypot house offers weekends full of fun activities and time away from the stressful responsibilities they face at home. During school holidays, the children can stay at Honeypot House for a week at a time.

    The Honey Pot Charity also has a specially adapted mobile play centre, where children who experience similar difficulties and deprivation in their lives meet, play and socialise in a non-judgmental, safe and therapeutic environment. The Play bus focuses on play, fun and interaction between peers with the support of positive adult role models. Each Honeypot child will be visited three times a year in their own community by the bus, giving them the rare opportunity to play freely.

    Project Harar

    In rural Ethiopia many people living with facial deformities - be it cleft lip and palate or animal attack injuries - are unable to access medical support. This can result in them becoming marginalised from their own communities. The result of this is that people suffering from a facial disfigurement may be denied education, the opportunity to marry or even to get a job and earn a living. In a country where community is so important, being stigmatised for the way you look can be hugely detrimental to your way of life. 

    Project Harar exists to ensure that as many people as possible living in rural Ethiopia do get access to treatment and are not denied much of what we take for granted. The year round programme supports predominantly children who otherwise would not be able to receive medical operations either from lack of funding or lack of knowledge that these surgeries are available.
