Every child at Trinity belongs to one of 4 houses. Each house is named after a Londoner who has made a significant contribution to wider society. Being a member of a house gives children the feeling of being part of a team and they can look up to their house captain as a role model. Children are awarded house points for excellent work or fantastic achievements and these go towards the awarding of the House Cup at the end each term. Children also compete in house events throughout the year such as the house spelling bee or sports day.
