Sports House Events
The primary purpose of the St. Nicholas House System is to further the mission of the school by providing a range of experiences to develop potential and success for all students while strengthening our sense of community through collaboration across all ages.
- Aims and objectives
- To strengthen each student's interpersonal relationship skills, learner profile, attitudes and attributes.
- The system will also enable us to proactively develop students' leadership skills.
- To provide a safe and guided structure for children to learn to manage their emotions in a range of situations, including sporting, academic and creative arts competitions.
- To encourage teamwork and sportsmanship and foster respect for each other in the process.
One notable feature of the house system is the appointment of house captains for the Junior and Senior School, whose job it is to rally fellow house-members and to organise individuals for team events. In the Senior school, house captains organise and run House assemblies, where they talk about forthcoming events and events that have just taken place.
At St. Nicholas School there are three Houses
Cambridge Oxford London
- On entering the school from Year 3, all pupils are placed in one of the three houses, ensuring a balance of pupils and pupil gender in each of the houses.
- Immediate (siblings and cousins) family members are placed in the same house.
- Each house is led by a Head of House (teacher) and House and Vice-House Captains (pupils).
