House System


We have three ‘houses’ in Knockbreda Primary School, Castle Ward, Mount Stewart and Tollymore. Pupils in Primary 4 to Primary 7 are placed in one of the houses and have the opportunity to earn points, both individually and as a group. Each house has a teacher to assist them.

Points are awarded for a range of achievements or notable behaviour such as helpfulness, enthusiasm, politeness, kindness to name a few. Each house meets to elect a House Captain and Vice-Captain as well as a House Sport’s Captain and Vice-Sport’s Captain who undertake responsibility for encouraging and organising members of their house throughout the year.

Each month house points are totalled and updated on our House News Board. Towards the end of the year there are several competitions are held such as a football tournament, the inter-house quiz and Sport’s Day. These provide the opportunity to increase house points before the end of year totals are revealed at our final assembly. There is a range of trophies to compete for but it is the Overall House Trophy that is the ultimate goal!

Which house will you be in?!
