School Houses

The Houses at Caversham Prep are named after the rivers that flow through the Reading area. There are three houses: Loddon (yellow), Kennet (blue) and Thames (green).

On House event days, like Sports Day, the children wear tee-shirts in their house colours. They also have House flags to wave in support. The children are awarded House Points and each fortnight in our Achievement Assembly the House Points are read out. At our Annual Speech Day and Prize Giving the House Sports Cup and the overall House Winner Cups are awarded. Children in Year 6 are chosen as House Captains, taking pride in their leadership roles.

Here are some of the annual Inter-House activities that the children can look forward to:

House Captains 2019-2020

Team ThamesThames 

Team Thames! My favourite part of being a house captain is leading the team for inter-house sports competitions like the cricket tournament and, later in the year, the swimming gala. I remember enjoying the inter-house tug of war when I was younger, so it makes me proud to think I’m head of Thames as I’ve been in this house since I was in Reception. I love sport: I do ballet, gymnastics, diving, trampolining and netball so this is the perfect job for me! I’m also passionate about drama so I’m good at announcing house-points in the whole school assembly.

Team KennettKennet 

As House Captain for Kennet, my responsibilities include helping in the dining hall, supporting each other in sports tournaments and helping to organise house meetings. I am looking forward to the inter-house pancake competition for Shrove Tuesday; we have to run relays whilst flipping pancakes in pans – great fun! Each week we count up the house points from around the school and Kennet usually do pretty well! Go Kennet!

Team LoddonLoddon 

I have always been in Loddon House so I was excited to be chosen to be the House Captain as it was a real surprise. The best bit is when there’s a sports event, you are head of the team, helping to make decisions, encourage others and hopefully win! I have enjoyed helping to sell items at the school tuck shop once a week where we check the list and give people treats.  I think I was chosen because I am a calm and sensible role model to others. Keep it up Loddon!
