House System

All the children and staff belong to one of four 'Houses' at our school, which are named after historic squares in Brighton & Hove.

Everyone is very proud to be a member of a House. Every Friday, there is a whole school assembly to celebrate who has been working hard to earn points and to announce the Golden Pupil for each class.

The House with the most points is also announced the members allowed to wear home clothes to school on the following Monday - an award decided by the School Council.




Our House Captains are chosen through a vote at the start of each year in a House Meeting. They prepare a speech which they deliver to their House, detailing why they feel they will be a suitable House Captain/Vice Captain. The rest of the House vote for the candidate that they feel will represent their House, making sure that their Captain and Vice Captain demonstrates our CORE values (Commitment, Opportunity, Respect and Excellence) as well as British Values (Democracy, The Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect & Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs) .

Captains ensure that their House are working hard to earn plenty of House Points every day. They are exemplary students at Coombe Road Primary School and always demonstrate our values.


At the end of each academic year, House Points for the WHOLE YEAR are added together.

The Winning House receives the Coombe Road Shield in the final assembly of the year and sings their House song VERY loudly in celebration!
