You are the PRIDE of HOLLAND House! We are coming into the last terms of the year, so keep trying your best! Always focus on what you can achieve and not the mistakes you may have made!  We learn from mistakes, it’s all part of our journey!  I believe you… So YOU believe in YOU!!

Head of Johnson House: Mr Kelly

Hello Johnson House! What a year it has been and how quickly it is going. We are really starting to make a drive with the Aspire challenges so let’s keep this momentum up. We also did excellently in the House Music Competition, placing first! What an achievement. Well done Johnson!

On another note, I want to wish my Year 11s the best of luck in their upcoming GCSE examinations. Keep up the hard work and revision and it will pay off in the long run. It is a big world out there with lots of opportunities so make your time in school worthwhile.

 

Mr Kelly

Head of McLaren House: Miss Pearce

Hello McLaren House

I am so proud of every single McLaren house student so far this year, through your consistent good performances in inter house competitions, pushing for achievement points every week, storming through the aspire passports and remaining at the top for attendance in the entire school, we have been fantastic! We need to continue to push our values of competitiveness and strive for greatness now moving into the last term heading towards sports day! I have been head of McLaren house for the past 7 years and I will be handing over the reigns to Mr Munton on Friday 3rd May to go on Maternity leave. Mr Munton is extremely excited to be taking over such a lovely group of students, and is looking forward to leading the house to success!

Miss Pearce 😊

Head of Nova House: Miss Moore

Congratulations to all the Nova house students who have achieved their aspire badges so far, you have worked so hard to achieve these. Your dedication and hard work are truly commendable. As year 11 prepares for their exams, remember that your hard work and dedication has prepared you well for this moment. Trust in your abilities, stay focused and give it your best. Success in within your reach, and we’re all cheering you on every step of the way.

Head of Peake House: Mr Favell

Peake House is having an excellent term so far, with resounding successes on the sports field. The house’s football teams have been in fine form, with the 7/8 and 9/10 squads both emerging victorious in their respective interhouse football tournaments. These triumphs have energized the entire house and added to the already buoyant morale. While revelling in their athletic accomplishments, Peake is also turning its attention to the pivotal academic challenges that lie ahead. The year 11 students, in particular, are diligently preparing for their crucial exams, and the whole house extends its warmest wishes for their success. With a mixture of sporting glory and academic determination, Peake House is riding a wave of momentum this term, and a massive good luck goes out to all the year 11s as they approach their all-important examinations.

Head of Trinity House: Mr Horner

Hello Trinitonians!

Well done for such a brilliant year so far. We have been putting in consistent good performances in inter house competitions and have been raking in those ASPIRE badges. Keep up with the achievement points. We can’t let our amazing start to the year slip. Finally, good luck to all our year 11 students embarking on their final exams. Keep putting in the effort for your revision and then reap the benefits come summer!
