House Competition

The House System

There were 5 houses:

North - green;

South - dark blue;

East - yellow;

West - maroon;

Centre - light blue

The house masters were:

North - Mr H Bennett;

South - Mr J Mitchell;

East - Mr E Tordoff;

West - Mr Beck;

Centre - Mr A Rodley

We collected house points for good work, in class and exams, in the form of HMs (honourable mentions). Sport also brought about points with inter-house competitions - football, cricket, athletics, cross-country etc.The cross-country was fun wasn’t it? An overcrowded changing room at Horsfall Playing Fields followed by a run through a usually muddy Judy Woods. Even if you were excused on medical grounds you were still expected to be a race marshall!
