When your child starts at Buchanhaven School, they will be allocated a house and issued with a house badge which they should wear on a daily basis to school. We have four houses at the school: Waterside, Balmoor, Craigewan and Ugie. Siblings will be allocated to the same house.

Pupils vote in the election of their House Captain and Vice House Captain. Pupils earn points for their house by adhering to the school’s climate for learning policy and the points are counted each week. The house with the most points over the month wins a ‘House Treat’. Pupils suggest ideas for these and their wishes are accommodated as much as possible. At the end of the year the house with the most points accumulated over the year wins the ‘Burnett House Cup’.

Over the year there are inter-house competitions which encourage pupils to work as a team across all ages and stages within the school.
