Interhouse Events
Interhouse Events

The PE Department encourage participation and competition between tutor groups and in doing so support the house system at Newlands through a number of Interhouse sporting events each year.  Our Sports Captains and Prefects develop their leadership skills further by assisting in the planning and running of these events throughout the year.


All pupils are encouraged to participate in at least one activity over the course of the year.

Tutor groups compete in the following sports and activities to earn points for their House: 

  • Hockey

  • Netball

  • Tennis

  • Swimming

  • Athletics – The final Interhouse event of the year is always an exciting occasion with points won in the previous week’s field events competition being added to the track events results on Sports Day.

  • Dance – The Interhouse dance competition is a hotly contested event, with the winning performance from each year group going on to perform in our annual Gym & Dance Show.

  • Rounders

Points awarded at each Interhouse event go towards the houses’ totals for the year, with the winning house being awarded the House Cup.
