At Waterwells, every child belongs to one of four Houses – Whitley (Green), Meteor (Yellow), Beaufort (Blue) or Spitfire (Red). Each House group is named after an aircraft, as historically the local area formed part of the RAF Quedgeley site, which encompassed aircraft parts and factories.
Belonging to a House is a very important aspect of being part of our school. Each House is led by a House Captain. Each year, Year 6 pupils are elected as house captains who lead their house in school sports and competitions.
House and Vice House Captains are also responsible for collecting and distributing house points, showing visitors around the school and acting as ambassadors.
One child is elected by their classes each year to represent their class at monthly School Council meetings. The children take part in a range of opportunities to improve their school and raises issues and ideas.
