Emerald House

Emerald House

Welcome to Emerald House. We continue to strengthen the community around the academy, this is all thanks to Emerald house pupils and staff who have been working hard to raise participation in competitions across the whole curriculum and extracurricular opportunities.

We have an excellent group of young people in Emerald house, our staff, house and form captains will be working hard over the term to increase awareness.

Emerald House Motto and ethos

Linking to the theme of the wizard of Oz we have formed an ethos of courage and perseverance. We hope to instil the ‘I can do’ attitude by having the following motto to accompany us:

"Courage Doesn’t Always Roar"

Full quote; "Courage doesn’t always roar, Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow."

Our mascot is therefore the Lion, named by our house captains as Leon the Lion.

Emerald House Song

Our theme tune has changed this year. A school in London Haringey decided to release a song following difficult times for their community in 2012. They released a single called "Everybody Dreams". They share a spirit that is seen in our pupils and community and the lyrics and meaning holds true for what we want our pupils to believe about their future. Not only within the house system but across the academy; all we want for our pupils is to realise their dreams and let us help and support them to aspire to reach them.

Since working at the academy I have realised every year more and more about how lucky we are to work with the pupils of this community. They are kind, honest and strong minded, we need to embrace what they can offer, Emerald house believes in every single house member.

Emerald House Charity

Emerald house will be supporting the British heart foundation, 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 foundation. We will start off by hosting our annual CPR workshop raising awareness for life saving skills.
