All children at Bishop Gilpin are members of one of four school houses. Each house comprises children from across each year group. Siblings are usually allocated to the same house.
House points are awarded throughout the year for competitions, good behaviour, etc, and at the end of each academic year a cup is awarded to the house with the most points. Each house has a captain from Year 6 and a vice-captain from Year 5.
All children in the main school are required to wear a house colour t-shirt and/or sweatshirt when doing PE lessons. These are available from our uniform supplier, Stitch Design, at:
The houses and their colours are:
- Mercury – Red
- Saturn – Green
- Neptune – Blue
- Jupiter – Yellow.
If you are uncertain which house you belong to, please ask your class teacher or the school office.
