    I have been tasked with looking for ideas on introducing some inter-house academic competitions in our school for the two houses to compete against each other. We currently have a swim gala and cross country/sports day, but nothing to appeal to those non sporty children.

    Does anyone have any ideas of some academic competitions they run in their school? I have obviously thought about the 'spelling bee' style, but any other ideas would be great!

    House quiz - good because you can have one from each year group representing their house
    House maths - team style competition
    House problem solving - SATRO type competition
    House Spelling Bee
    House Art
    House Chess
    House Public Speaking
    House Debating

    Those are all ones we do at my school
