Minehead First School Making sure school matters to every child


At Minehead First School children (and staff) are allocated to one of five houses, Dunkery (blue), Grabbist (white), Hawkcombe (green), Hopcott (red) or Selworthy (yellow.) Children collect house points which contribute to a weekly total, announced in assembly every week. The winner at the end of each term has a special reward and their house ribbons go on the cup . There are many opportunities throughout the year for children to compete in their houses including quizzes, parties and sports day.

The winners of the house cup for the Autmum Term 2017 are: Grabbist 


House Captains


In September 2017 Minehead First School held their house elections where children had the chance to vote for their new Year 4 House Captains and Vice Captains.


Many year 4 children gave speeches and everyone was impressed with how much work they had put into their election campaigns. The votes were counted and the House Captains were announced in assembly.  The House Captains are:


Selworthy  - Isla (Captain), Libby (Vice Captain)
Dunkery Lily (Captain), Alfie (Vice Captain)
Hawkcombe Eva (Captain), Lilly (Vice Captain)
Hopcott - Louie(Captain), Ollie (Vice Captain)
Grabbist Emily (Captain), Harvey (Vice Captain)



The House Captains and Vice Captains have enjoyed collecting house points each week and are looking forward to more responsibilities.
