There are three Houses in the School. Kites (Yellow), Falcons (Green) and Owls (Red).
On starting at Hawkesdown, each boy will be allocated a House for his time at School. Each House has a Captain and Deputy-Captain(s) who are elected from Year 3.
House points are awarded for effort, achievement, initiative, kindness and other positive behaviours or successes. They are also won by Houses in various competitions. Points are totaled up weekly and eagerly awaited in the Friday Assembly. There is a termly House Cup for the winning House.
Staff are also allocated a House, except the Headmistress and the School Secretaries who remain impartial judges of House competitions!
The system encourages the School’s aims and ethos, teamwork, a sense of loyalty and a healthy competitive spirit.
