Houses

At St John's Church of England Academy we have four different houses. These are Cannop, Lightmore, Hopewell and Norchard.

The different houses represent significant landmarks throughout the Forest of Dean. 

Each week children around the school earn house points for being polite, being kind and considerate, helping others and working hard. These are given by adults and the children record these in their classrooms. House point monitors from Year 6 tally the total number of house points from each classroom. During Friday’s celebration assembly, 8 children are given either 'Writer of the Week' or 'Mighty Mathematician' and 8 children are given a Values Certificate for demonstrating the school's Christian values.

At the end of each term there is a Shining Star chosen from each class who earn 100 house points!! All of the house points are combined by the house captains and a running total is created. Whichever house is in the lead ties their house colour around the House Cup for that week.

Below are our current house captains:
