At St. John's C. of E. Academy we have four houses: Cannop, Lightmoor, Hopewell and Norchard.

The houses represent the collieries that are landmarks throughout the Forest of Dean. 

Each week children earn house points for being polite, being kind and considerate, helping others and working hard. These are given to reward and praise positive behaviours in our school. House points are tallied and the total number of house points is shared during Friday’s celebration assembly when  children are also awarded Superstar certificates. At the end of each term a Shining Star is chosen from each class.
