Well in 1983 - 1987, Charnock Hall Seconary School as it was known used to have and still do today I believe Brindley (Blue), Chantary (Red), Hardwick (Green) and Nightingal (Yellow).

 

Did everyone get house points in there schools?

Park Hill Middle School had birds of prey for houses when I went there in the mid 70s. Not sure about my other schools.

I went to Nether Edge Grammar which shows how old I am. We had Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and some other classics I forget. I was a greek. I must have been the palest skinned greek ever born.

 

I did my first two years at Nether Edge, and then the remainder after we moved to Abbeydale. In all my time there, the houses were Richmond (red), York (yellow), Pevril (blue), and Conisbrough (green). I wonder when they changed - and why.

I went to Notre Dame early nineties. The houses then were

Cavendish - Red

Hallam - Green

Firth - Blue

Oakbrook - Yellow.

 

Cavendish seemed to win most years. Hallam won a couple too. I was Sports Captain for Hallam for a year. (Won that year)!
