House Captains


Our House Captain elections take place during the first few weeks of the new school year. Our House Captains and Vice Captains are Y6 children who are elected by their respective houses.  They represent the school in a number of ways, organise assemblies and welcome visitors to our school.

We have 4 Houses - East, Gotch, Knibb and Wicksteed. The house names were suggested by children following a competition - each house is named after an important person from Kettering.

Children earn housepoints by following and demonstrating the PARK Values. In addition to individual housepoints, children can earn a special 10 housepoint star token if they're nominated by their class teacher for a 'Star of the Week' award. Stars of the Week are announced in celebration assembly and on Twitter. 

The house captains calculate the housepoint and a running total is announced in celebration assembly.  The children await the weekly declaration with keen interest to see if their house has earned the most points.
