House System

All pupils at St. Julian’s Primary School are organised into ‘houses’. We have four houses named after famous Welsh princes. Pupils represent their houses in our annual Sports Day and Eisteddfod. They can also earn points for their house throughout the year for good behaviour and effort. Each of the four houses have elected house captains in Foundation Phase and Key-Stage 2.

For Sports Days and our Eisteddfod, pupils can dress in the colour of their house.

St. Julian’s High School also arrange their pupils into the same houses, so when pupils leave Year 6 and enter Year 7, they will remain in the same house.

Owain Glyndŵr was a Welsh ruler and the last Welshman to hold the title ‘Prince of Wales’. On 16 September 1400, Glyndŵr instigated the Welsh Revolt against Henry IV of England. The uprising was initially successful and he rapidly gained control of large areas of Wales, but it suffered from key weaknesses – particularly a lack of artillery, which made capturing defended fortresses difficult, and of ships, which made their coastlands vulnerable. The uprising was eventually suppressed by the superior resources of the English. Glyndŵr was driven from his last strongholds in 1409, but he avoided capture and the last documented sighting of him was in 1412.
