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.

    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.

    Rainbow Trust

    Rainbow Trust is  UK based charity which supports families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness and need the bespoke care. There are an estimated 49,000 children and young people in the UK living with a life limiting or life threatening condition who may require palliative care (University of Leeds, 2011). Many of these children and their families are able to cope or are not in a ‘crisis situation’. However, thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis. Their support is hugely varied and depends on the needs of the family. They offer: family support, sibling support, hospital support, home support and bereavement support.

    They believe that every family who has a child with a life threatening illness should have the support they need. With the help and support and fundraising they are able to achieve this vision.
