After the first half-term the House Cup standings have seen a Lazarus-style come-back from Seward House who last year came a distant fourth.

The current House point scores are as follows:

1. Seward – 17,701
2. Darwin – 15,915
3. Johnson – 15,233
4. Garrick – 14,329

The House Points are awarded for a wide range for reasons ranging from top-quality classwork to regular attendance, excellent HLAs to helpfulness to others, or representing the school at events or taking part on sports teams.

Mark Drury, Assistant Headteacher, said: “Huge congratulations to everyone in Seward House for their excellent commitment which has resulted in a commanding lead. The pressure is now on the other Houses to turn this around and take pole position in the race for the House Cup.”
