North West is proud to have 4 Houses: David, Israel, Jonathan and Judah. These Houses are used for PE activities, Sports Days, House Point Days and weekly House Point collections.
Each year, 8 children from Year Five are selected to be House Captains during the time in Year Six. They are selected following an application form, meeting with a member of the Leadership Team and a vote by their House peers. House Captains have a variety of jobs around the school and organise a number of events for different classes and Key Stages at different intervals throughout the school year.
The student-led Science Committee is the voice of the pupils. The committee is made up of a number of representatives from each class in Years 2-6. They meet fortnightly, and the committee meetings are an opportunity for the children to shape how we approach Science within the school. Our students show excellent leadership, creativity and initiative to ensure that Science is an engaging topic for all students.
This year our Science Committee has made a fantastic effort to promote healthy living, and created an excellent video encouraging this on their peers. They have also created a listing of Higher Order thinking Science challenges for their fellow students.
