"Pupils undertake their responsibilities as school councillors, eco warriors and worship councillors very seriously."


The House System

The house system at Down Ampney C of E Primary School encourages our children to show team spirit and to promote the school’s values.  Our intention is for all of the school’s houses thrive on the ethos of ‘playing your part’.

Our school has four houses which have been carefully named after elements of Down Ampney history.  We have made every effort to represent the different aspects of the village.

The house system allows children to have opportunity to bond and collaborate with children from across the school with whom they have a house in common. This broadens their groupings beyond that of their class.

The houses promote and encourage engagement in various activities that are part of both the core and wider curriculum.  These will take the form of competitions, sporting activities and ‘House Days’ where children have a period of the school day with children from all year groups. 

Our houses are:

  • Vaughan
  • Templar
  • Dakota
  • Thames
