S. Anselm's

A full boarding and day school for boys and girls from Nursery to 16

School Houses

Children and staff at S. Anselm’s are divided into four Houses and engage in a plethora of House competitions which take place throughout the year including pancake races, sports, singing and a times table challenge.

Each of the Houses has a House colour, crest and flag.  House badges are available from the School Office.

The Houses are traditionally named after four of our most famous national heroes and are:

Pitts Churchills
Nelsons Wellingtons

Children are allocated to Houses on arrival at the school; any siblings or other family relationships will all be in the same house avoiding potential material for dispute.

All the children learn the history of their House hero and have a weekly House meeting on a Thursday morning. Here plans are laid and often the children decide to do some independent fundraising for a charity of their choice. House points can be earned in various ways, including for excellent school work, manners, courtesy and doing good deeds.  House loyalties are fiercely defended and when house points are counted up at the end of each week the victorious House gets to raise their own House Flag in the school car park for all to see.
