Sapphire House Motto

We aspire for every member of Sapphire house, whether student or staff, to be committed to fulfilling his or her potential, both academically and within the whole school community. That is why we have chosen as our motto


Everyone in the Sapphire House team tries to live up to that bold aim by trying to achieve at every level of the academy community. All students play a big part in running Sapphire House, particularly through our tutor rep and house rep system. The reps are responsible for driving the performance of the House across all areas. As a team they are led by our House captains; Rosie Anderson and Jamie-Lee Hutchings. These two are supported by a team of students from each tutor group. 

Sapphire House Charity

Sapphire house will be supporting Willen Hospice a charity close to a number of students and staff. Throughout the year we will raise money through a series of events within school. We are keen to provide a strong link with the Hospice.

Sapphire House Song

Our house song will be The Script – Hall of Fame. We believe this encapsulates exactly what our students should believe “You can be the greatest, you can be the best”


In the last half term Sapphire had 49 students who have 100% attendance this is an excellent achievement, of those 17 have a 100% school attendance since the start of the academic year. I am really pleased to celebrate this positive achievement by sapphire students. This will be celebrated in house assemblies this term
