Return to Children

House system

At Welwyn St Mary’s we all belong to a ‘house’.   Our houses are the Romans, Normans, Vikings and Saxons. We are all proud of our respective houses and work hard to gain house points.  The points are counted each half term and the winning house is awarded a trophy.

House points are awarded for good behaviour, effort, perseverance, kindness and achievement.   On sports day the children compete to win points for their house.

Each house has its own colour and in PE lessons and on sports day we wear our house colours:

Vikings  Romans  Normans   Saxons

House captains and vice captains 2021


We elect our house captains and vice captains from members of year 6.   It is an honour to be elected.  Photographs of representatives are displayed on a board outside the gym.
