Our houses

Our house groups

At Robinswood, every child belongs to one of four houses – Wilson (Green), Rowling (Yellow), Holst (Blue) or Stokes (Red). Each house group is named after famous people that are linked to Gloucester.

Belonging to a house is a very important aspect of being part of our school. Each house is led by a House Captain. Each year, Year 6 pupils are elected as house captains who lead their house in school sports and competitions.

House and Vice House Captains are also responsible for collecting and distributing house points, showing visitors around the school and acting as ambassadors.

Wilson’s medical and scientific skills were matched by his artistic talent. It was this combination that led to his appointment, in 1901, as second medical officer, vertebrate zoologist and artist on Captain Scott’s National Antarctic Expedition, which set sail in the Discovery in August 1901.

Born in Yate, Rowling has won many accolades for her work. She has been appointed to the Order of the British Empire and made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour for services to literature and philanthropy. Harry Potter brought her wealth and recognition that she has used to advance philanthropic endeavours.
