Houses

At St. John's C. of E. Academy we have four houses: 

Cannop   Lightmoor   Hopewell   Norchard

Our 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. 

In the Autumn Term, Year 6 pupils can choose to put themselves forward as House Captains. They make speeches to their houses and all of the children in each house vote for the two Year 6 pupils who they want to lead them as their House Captains for the year.
