"Together we will be brave and courageous"
As Head of Amber House, I am extremely proud, passionate and excited by what the future holds for our young people. The ability to work as an effective team is something of which we all need to work towards, wherever our career paths take us. In representing Amber House, students will also be passionate & proud, no matter what the field of competition. As Head of Physical Education, I believe Sport to be at the very top end of priorities in all that we do; the skills learnt through competitive competition are transferable across all other aspects of the curriculum in which you study. It is my goal to achieve every success with you. Whilst developing a strong morale throughout Amber House, we will also work together in creating exemplary social skills for all individuals of which will aid students in achieving their every potential.
Students in Amber House will work together in replicating their House Motto. The ability to work together at all times is a skill transferable into all that students do at present, during their school day. In addition, it is a skill required in students’ future lives, whatever their chosen career pathway. Students in Amber House will be brave at all times - students will step outside of their comfort zones in a bid to succeed as individuals & as a team, whilst contributing towards their House. Students in Amber House will become leaders in all that they do. Through working together, students will look to form formidable communication skills as they all aspire to be leaders within their House.
House Sport sees chosen students represent their House during competitive Sport; students who are both committed and loyal with a huge passion to succeed. As a House we have a proven track record of success - we work together as a collective team with our overall ambition being, to be the best we can be. In addition to that, the newly formed House Games sees each & every student within the academy represent their House during House Games at the end of every half term.
As House Champions for the past two academic years, Amber House students must continue to work hard in order to replicate these past successes. A huge well done to all students in Amber House who have worked tremendously hard and given their all to their House.
We are Amber House.

"True courage is in facing danger when you are afraid"
As Head of Emerald House, I endeavour for all students to be unusually brave. All students in Emerald house will be part of an inclusive, courageous community. I strongly believe that House sport is at the core of our students' school experience. Emerald House students not only have passion to succeed but they help and inspire others to reach their full potential.
I am the founding Head of Emerald house, having worked at the Academy for 8 years. The question I ask myself every day is what difference can I make? The life skills that Emerald House students develop through competing in House sport will be crucial to future and career success. Emerald House students will be able to lead and collaborate. They will have the resilience to reflect and try again.
I would like to personally thank all of our house representatives for pushing the limits. We have consistently secured the top positions in the house leaderboard for the past 5 years. We are the only house to Win all Sports days. This is a testament to the outstanding leadership of our house representatives. Well done. Our year group representatives and house captains have led their teams, ensured high participation and motivated them to succeed.
Thank you to all students who have participated in House Sport and Games. Our house system is fully inclusive which means you all represent your House each half term. Those who go above and beyond have committed to house sport competitions during their lunch times. Our motto emanates the personal attributes you have all shown this year; resilience, perseverance and courage.
Great commitment by all. 2022/23 is our year to shine!
