All children from Reception Class (summer term) to Yr 6 are allocated to a House at Our Lady of Lourdes. The children are put into their Houses for in-school competitions, including Sports Day at the end of the summer term. There are four Houses:
St Thomas Aquinas – Red
St Francis of Assisi – Blue
St John Bosco – Green
St Catherine of Alexandria – Yellow
Each has two Year 6 House Captains, who are voted for by the Year 6 class at the start of the school year. The House Captains help to organise their teams and are role models for the other children in school. During assemblies throughout the year they are required to report to the rest of the school on competitions and successes. Each Term there is a prize for the Team with the most points.
