Our house system is an important part of school life at Widcombe Juniors. Its purpose is to encourage the children to work in vertical year groups and engage in competitive sports, arts and team building activities.
Two House Captains are elected for each house annually by the children to represent them. They support and lead their teams during our 5 Widcombe Championship Days and Sports Day each year.
Our houses are named after gold medal winning British Olympic athletes: Annisle, Simmons, Wiggins, Ennis, Farah, and Grainger, and our children have designed some fantastic t-shirts to represent each house.
Well done to Ennis who romped to victory on Tuesday’s first Widcombe Championship Day of the year. As well as taking part in a rugby tournament, each team thought about flag designs which will be created later in the year. Team flags will then adorn our school hall and be used during Widcombe House events.
