Named after strawberrys, which were previously grown in fields long since built on by identikit estates which supplied the pupils to the school, oh the ironing etc.
Nippers school houses are named after animals which are actually still found in the surrounding greenery.Posted 4 months agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Named after old halls / estates. Derby, Lathom, Muncaster and another one I’ve forgotten.
Didn’t really perform any function other than deal with the practicalities of there not being any room in the school big enough for an assembly.
I was in Derby – the house famed for coming last in every inter-house event. Not just on aggregate but absolute last place in everything, t in an inter house athletics tournament we came last in every race in every year group. We came last in the football even when we were the only house to field a full team.Posted 4 months agoP-JayMember
Being in Wales, ours were always in Welsh – the odd thing was this – the *thought* the houses were Green, Blue, Red and Yellow in Welsh – which is Gwyrdd, Glas, Coch and Melyn – because that’s the colour they assigned each house, but they weren’t, even after 5 years of enforced Welsh lessons, none of us worked out that ‘Nofydd’ or whatever it was, wasn’t the Welsh word for ‘Red’ or indeed what it was in English.Posted 4 months ago
