House Teams

In our school, we have 3 House Teams named after Reformers – Knox, Tyndale and Wycliffe.  During the year, pupils have the opportunity to collect housepoints for their teams.  At the end of the school year, the winning team wins a shield and is rewarded with a trip.   Pupils also gain personal awards for collecting housepoints each month.

Knox (c. 1513-1572)

Knox was greatly used of God in the Scottish Reformation.  He taught people how to govern the true Church according to the Word of God, introducing the Presbyterian form of worship.

Tyndale (c. 1494-1536)

Tyndale translated the Bible into English.  His English New Testament first came to England in 1526.  Before he was martyred, Tyndale prayed, ‘Lord, open the King of England’s eyes.’  Two years later, his prayer had been answered; Bibles in English were allowed in churches.

Wycliffe (c.1320-1324 – 1384)

Wycliffe was the ‘Morning Star of the Reformation’.  He studied at Oxford University and became a preacher, teaching that the Bible – not tradition – should teach us how to live.
