Houses

Welcome to the Houses page on our website. Here you will be able find out about all of our houses, as well as the inter house competitions and events that take place throughout the year

Each child and member of staff is allocated a ‘house’ on entry to the school. The names of these represent the patron saints of the four countries of the UK; St George (red), St David (yellow), St Andrew (blue), St Patrick (green). Various house competitions are run throughout the year. House captains from Y6 are determined at the start of the school year. Throughout the year children can earn housepoints for showing a positive attitude to learning, exceeding expectations, a piece of exceptional work etc. It is the responsibility of the member of staff awarding the housepoint to provide them with it and should be awarded in single housepoints rather than multiple awards at one time. Each child has a chart to record these on and will receive a special certificate in assembly for recognition when achieving the following number of housepoints:

House Rugby

The first game of the St Catherine's inter house four nations was played on Wednesday 6th March. After a very fast end to end game, St Andrews came out 30 points to 15 winners. Well done to all those that took part. The next fixture will be St Patrick versus St Davids on the 13th March.

The second instalment of the four nations continued with a precursor to the main event this weekend: St Patrick's versus St David's (Ireland v Wales). It was a high tempo game that saw lots of tackling and nine tries. St Patrick's were eventually victorious by 30 points to 15.

The latest battle in the four nations saw a closely competed contest between St Davids and St George. After an equally balanced first half, St Davids took advantage of their larger squad and managed to overcome a fatigued St Georges team
