Houses are called Boswell (Blue), Darwin (Red), Garrick (Green) and Johnson (Yellow) based on famous Lichfield characters.
There are House Meetings once a week. House points are awarded for hard work, good work, effort, helpfulness and courtesy. These are credited to an individual, but each individual's score contributes to the weekly, termly and yearly House totals. Minuses are given for poor behaviour.
All children are assigned to Houses from the Reception Class, with House Tutors in charge. Houses help to create a structure for friendly and enthusiastic competition in a number of areas of School life. These include team games - Football, Hockey, Netball, Cricket, Rugby, Cross-Country, Athletics and Swimming as well as events such as House Poetry and House Music competitions.
There is a system of sanctions for anti-social offences, but the School aims wherever possible to encourage good self-discipline through positive reward.
At the end of the academic year, final scores are calculated; the winning House receives a trophy and the highest individual scorers are awarded prizes in the final assembly.
