House Captains

haydonleigh houses

Each house has two captains from Year 6.

All year 5 children are invited to make an application to be a House Captain and are then voted for by their peers.

House Captains need to be a good role model for their peers and be a member of the school who other pupils feel they respect, trust and talk to.

Role Description – Responsibilities of a House Captain
