Young Leadership at Belmont
At Belmont, our pupils are encouraged to take on roles of responsibility throughout their time at the school. In Year 6, pupils are selected to become Captains:
- House Captains
- Music Captain
- Sports Captain
- Maths Captain
In October 2019, our new House Captains suggested new names for our existing Houses. Many ideas and names were discussed and the pupils agreed to focus on influential people from the past, choosing individuals who have left their mark on British society and the world:
The four Houses were renamed:
- Churchill (Winston Churchill - British politican, writer and army officer and British Prime Minister during WWI - 1940-45)
- Seacole (Mary Seacole - British-Jamaican nurse who was influential in the Crimean War)
- Dickens (Charles Dickens - British novelist, journalist, editor and illustrator whose works including Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol)
- Fawcett (Dame Millicent Fawcett - Women's activist, writer and political leader)
House Points are awarded to pupils for learning behaviours in class, exhibiting our school values and acting as role models for other pupils. Each week House Point totals are shared in assembly and a winning House is announced at the end of each term.
Captains and Vice Captains
Each year, teachers nominate and elect pupils who are good role models to take on these roles. Captains are selected from Year 6 and vice-captains from Year 5.
