House Captains

KSM House Captains

At KSM, we have four houses, Romans, Tudors, Saxons and Vikings. All pupils at KSM belong to one of these four Houses. Each House is led by two House Captains from year 6. Pupils who wish to be considered as a House Captain are invited to make an application to be a House Captain and are then voted for by their peers

House Captains need to be a good role model for their peers and be a member of the school who other pupils feel they respect, trust and talk to. A key role is one of responsibility that requires House Captains to be dedicated, organised and to set a positive example to all children throughout our school.

House Captains maintain a high level of commitment throughout the year to promote school events such as open days and sports days, encourage and motivate their team as well as assist school staff. House captains have a good attitude, work hard, are resilient and encourage positive behaviour across the school. They are caring, honest organised and keen to support the whole school. They also look out for those who might need support and help those in need.

Why be a House Captain?

“The role of House Captain is very special because it means I'm a role model to others and I can help others in difficulty. I love helping others and I'm very good at solving other people's problems too.’

‘Being a House Captain is really important because I have to inspire our team to win lots of house points and try their best at sports day, even if they don't win.’


‘I wanted to become House Captain because I think I'm a good leader. I like helping others, especially the younger children.’


‘It lets us help to do things and change things in our school. We can talk about issues and make things better, such as improve our Quiet Area.’


‘I like showing people around our school and telling them all the amazing things we can do here.’
