All the children in Wellesley School are assigned to one of four houses: Rowan, Oak, Hawthorn or Maple.
At the beginning of each year the children vote for a boy and a girl to act as a house captain and lead their house. Thoroughout the year children compete against other houses in a range of academic and sporting activities such as sports day, football tournaments, spelling and maths competitions. Cups are award to the winning house which are then proudly displayed in the school entrance area.
Children also receive points for their houses to reward good manners, behaviour and work. A cup is presented to the house at the end of each term who have collected the most points. Children are also presented with certificates for each set of ten house points which they are awarded.
Children also attend a special house assembly once a month which is organised and lead by their house captains.
