House Captains

All children at Sherwood are part of a School House Team. Our House Teams are named after four inspirational Prestonians. Each week, children collect points for their Team and recognition is given each week to the Team who score the most points. We often use our House Teams when grouping children for different activities and for sporting competitions. 

Each year, our children elect their House Captains. The role of a House Captain is one of privilege, pride and responsibility and provides a young leadership opportunity for children elected. 

Our House Captains contribute a wide range of skills and ideas to the role. All House Captains are expected to model our School Values and the British Values to our children and School Community.
