THE HOUSE COMPETITION AND REWARDS AT HURSTMERE
Boys at Hurstmere are organised in four houses. We do this to promote a sense of teamwork and identity. In each year group there are two forms in each of the four houses: Caxton, Cobham, Chaucer and Sidney.
Boys gain points for their houses through the ClassCharts rewards system. This system helps staff to reward enthusiastic work, maintain excellent standards of behaviour and cultivate a positive environment in which boys can achieve their best. These points feed into the House Competition and also lead to reward certificates for individual pupils, tickets for prize draws and group reward trips.
Throughout the year, boys also have the opportunity to participate in a range of inter-house competitions both inside and outside the classroom, culminating in the annual Inter-House Athletics Competition in the Summer Term. The Overall winner of the House Competition is announced after the athletics event and is calculated by combing the scores from inter-house competitions and the points from ClassCharts.
