The school runs a House system; the four houses are named after planets, Neptune (Blue), Venus (Green), Jupiter (Red) and Mercury (Yellow). On entry to Reception, each child is assigned a house (the same as an older sibling if applicable) and remains a member of this house throughout their years at Hollymount.
House points are awarded in class for effort, attitude and achievement and for competitions run at various points during the year, e.g. Sports Day, quiz competitions, Maths challenges etc. The house system fosters good relationships between children in different year groups and encourages a sense of working together.
Each year, boy and girl House Captains are selected from among the Year 6 pupils.
