School Council and Houses

More about the school council at Great Kimble.

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the school community. The school council representatives are elected at the beginning of the autumn term each year.


The School Council meet regularly with the Headteacher, Teachers, and Governors to discuss various issues. Our School Councillors live our Kimble values of respect, thankfulness, love, hope, forgiveness and endurance each and every day and they are always willing to listen to suggestions from their class mates and bring these ideas to our meetings. We are all working together to make Great Kimble the best it can possibly be.

More about Houses at Great Kimble

The school Houses were introduced in September 2022 as we welcomed our first year 6 cohort to the the school. Pupils were chosen by their classmates to represent one of four Houses. The children, parents, staff and governors then put forward suggestions for House names, which were then voted on. With a landslide vote the Houses were then names after British birds.


The role of House and Vice House Captains are ones of privilege, pride and responsibility. They are more than just a title and badge and require dedication and commitment for an entire year.
