House Captains

At Horbury Primary Academy, we have four house groups – Ash, Beech, Elm and Willow. The houses are led by our Year 6 House Captains.  The House Captains have an important role in school as they help to organise and run whole school events along with Mrs Yarnold and Mrs Cartwright. These events range from Children in Need and Christmas Jumper day to our Summer Sports Day where they will be the spokespeople for their houses.  A key attribute of being an effective House Captain is ensuring a good team spirit at Horbury Primary Academy.  Our House Captains are expected to be an example to younger children, to embody the values and ethos of the school and to contribute to the wider community.

The House Captains have a very important job of collecting up and totalling the PRIDE points on a Friday afternoon. Please see our Ethos and Values and Pride Points page for more detail.

Some of the key responsibilities of our House Captains include:

  • To be a role model in terms of attitude, attendance, behaviour, manners and appearance to all members of the house
  • To liaise with other House Captains and meet regularly with them and with the school leadership team and PE team
  • To help supervise house activities that may include:

organising inter–house competitions

charity and fund raising events

advising and supporting younger pupils

carrying out any other duties as required

  • To wear the house captain’s badge proudly at all times

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
