House Buddy System

In order to foster teambuilding and a feeling of belonging, pupils at Wellington Primary Academy are placed into a ‘House’ system named after military Captains from the Battle of Waterloo.

They are: 

    • Anglesey
    • Combermere
    • Harding
    • Picton

Siblings are always placed together and each pupil takes responsibility for their own role within their House. A competition is run each term with pupils awarded points for academic performance, effort or conduct and able to gain points in sporting, musical or artistic activities. The winning House is awarded an end of term treat. The system aims to encourage excellent behavior and pride within the school community.
