School Houses

This year’s winner of the Mellor Primary School ‘Inter House Challenge Shield’ (for the second year running) with a score of 3880 is the Kestrels.  Congratulations to the Kestrals and well done to all the children in each house for all their efforts!!

Our four Houses are named after local birds of prey – all chosen by the children:
  • Tawny Owls (yellow)
  • Merlins (blue)
  • Red Kites (red)
  • Kestrels (green)

Brothers and sisters are put into the same Houses as their siblings whenever possible.

The children are encouraged to develop a sense of pride in their House, working not just for themselves, but for others too. House points earned are placed in the collection boxes in the entrance hall to school.
