House System

House System

A strong sense of community and caring for others are values that lie at the heart of the Academy.

As an Academy, we pride ourselves on nurturing our students to become well-rounded individuals and through the House system we give all our students the chance to do this.

The whole Academy is divided up into 4 Houses. All members of the Academy, students and staff, are allocated to a House.

There are four Houses:

Sir Stanley Matthews

Emma Bridgwater

Josiah Wedgewood

Reginald Mitchell

The Houses foster a sense of identity and belonging as well as competing with each other. The House system plays an integral part in Academy life, from raising money for charities chosen annually by our students to organising large local events such as the Christmas Fair. There is always something going on to promote community spirit.
