House Points System

Children are allocated one of four houses in which they remain throughout the course of their time at St. Michael's.

The houses are based on the patron saints of the United KIngdom and each house has a colour.

  • St George (red)
  • St Andrew (blue)
  • St David (yellow)
  • St Patrick (green)

House points are awarded by staff to children throughout the course of each week. These are totalled at the end of each week with the winning house in each class being awarded four points for first, three points for second etc. A weekly cup is presented in assembly to the winning house and a running total is maintained and displayed in the school hall.  At the end of each term, the termly cup is awarded at the final assembly.

The children also represent their houses at Sports Day.
