Houses

The House system is an integral part of life at the Academy and aims to provide a sense of competition and fun through a range of academic, community, creative, cultural and sporting activities.

 

All students and members of staff are members of one of the four houses which are named after significant figures in the history of the sponsors of the Primary phase, The Temple Grove Trust. Every pupil’s House can be identified by their school tie colour;

At the beginning of each academic year elections are held to appoint student representatives; House President and Vice President Creative, Communication, Community, Sports and Temple Grove, to take responsibility and organise the House events.

 

The House programme provides opportunities for students of all ages to take responsibility, work as part of a team, face new challenges and acquire new skills. The diverse programme is designed to add breadth and depth to the students’ own interests and experiences, as well as provide the opportunity to be mentored and to support others.

 

The distinct ethos underpinning our house system and unique characteristics within each House will help pupils to develop strong personal values.
