About Us

House system

The House System is designed to embody the values and ethos of the Academy. It is an integral part of our Academy community and provides first class pastoral care for all students.

Our House names are based on five ancient settlements within the local area. Students are placed into: Hedoncrofte, Riseholme, Sefholme, Sudtone or Wawne House, depending on their sibling links, which enables House Teams to provide effective support for all students and families.  

Each House Team has its own identity, including a House emblem and core values, providing a sense of belonging. All students are encouraged to participate in the life of their House beyond the classroom and a calendar of events creates healthy competition between Houses.

Students compete to win House points, which are displayed on leader boards around the Academy.  

A range of student leadership opportunities are available including: Prefects, Sport Captains, House Council and Academy Council reps. Each tutor group also has its own representative ensuring `student voice’ is at the heart of decision making within the Academy. 

Every House is affiliated to a local charity, for which they fundraise and support throughout the academic year. This enables students to develop a sense of charity and local community involvement.
