House Captains

House Captains


At Christ Church, the role of House Captain is very important to the day-to-day organisation of our school. They are more than just a title and badge and require dedication and commitment for an entire year. In a sense, they are junior members of staff and are expected to take their roles seriously.


The positions not only allow the Year 6 pupils to lead by example and demonstrate their responsibility, it also enables the younger children to learn from a good example.


At the end of Year 5, the children are given the opportunity to stand for House Captain.  The children and staff collectively place a vote for three pupils from each house to lead their house the following year.


Once their application has been successful, the roles are announced in a whole school celebration assembly.
