True to the tradition of many schools in England, Anfield School cherishes the House system as a means of encouraging co-operation and friendly competition within a supportive environment. All students belong to one of four ‘Houses’: Faith, Hope, Love and Charity. The Houses are given colours – Hope (green), Faith (blue), Charity (yellow), Love (red) – and these are celebrated when students wear the House sports shirts.
Houses compete throughout the year in academics, sport, drama, community service and other activities. House points are also used to reinforce good behaviour, academic effort and endeavour and can be awarded by staff for a wide variety of reasons. Once awarded, House points are never deducted as a sanction. Children accumulate House points and are awarded bronze, silver or gold certificates dependent on the number of earned points.
Each term the points earned by all House member are totaled and the winning House is presented with with the termly trophy. At the end of the academic year, a final House trophy is awarded to the overall points winner.
