The House Championship

The Howard School House Championship is a competition based on excellence in all fields. Students of all ages have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of subject events and whole-school competitions. The vast array of academic, physical and creative competitions range from maths problem solving to creative writing to art & photography to music and sports. This provides opportunities for all of our students from all backgrounds to be involved in worthwhile activities that are not necessarily athletic in nature but reflect the values of contemporary society.  

To foster a community of responsibility, ambition, teamwork and friendly competition, our students and staff are all part of one of our five Houses: Attenborough, Hawking, Pankhurst, Tull and Turing.  

All of our students aspire to achieve and excel; learning, socialising and competing within The Howard School House Championship with mutual respect, integrity and good sportsmanship.
The House Championship allows for a positive impact on individual achievement: allowing students to positively contribute to their House, further develop their progress and attainment in subject areas and make a positive contribution to the wider school community.  

Each year, the five Houses compete for The Laurel Cup by partaking in a variety of different Events. The Championship culminates in Festival of Sports, at the end of which, the year’s winner is announced.  In any single event, Houses earn Championship Points depending on where they place from 1st to 5th.  At the end of the year, after all events have taken place, the House with the most Championship Points is crowned Howard School House Champions.  Students earn House Points through positive behaviour, upstanding citizenship, excellent effort, progress and attainment in lessons and demonstration of our five LORIC values: Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Intuition and Communication.

Enhancing equality of opportunity encourages our students to take ownership of their choices and help them realise their full potential further developing their wider skill set as they mature and grow into the next stage of their lives.

The Championship provides an invaluable opportunity for our students to become the very best versions of themselves; setting them up and instilling within them skills and values that will enable them to follow paths that lead to bright and successful futures in whatever field and area they desire.
