House Teams

At Thwaites, each of our families is a member of one of four different 'Houses'. Our Houses are all named after local areas ~ Black Combe, Duddon, Fox Wood and Swinside. Through the year, children work together to earn stars for their House team. Stars may be awarded for all sorts of different reasons, such as demonstrating a positive attitude, being kind, caring and helpful to others or working conscientiously. A child will be awarded a star during a Praise Assembly, when they can add it to their House board. Once a team fills their board, they can vote for their reward.


Each team has a House Captain, who is voted for by their peers. They are responsible for being super role models and encouraging their team-mates to demonstrate the following qualities:


  • conscientious
  • friendship
  • helpfulness
  • kindness
  • perseverance
  • politeness
  • positive attitude
  • resilience
  • teamwork
  • trustworthy


We will be voting for our new House Captains when we return in September.
