Sixth Form House Events
Sixth Form Students take a leading role in whole Academy enrichment activities.
The thriving House System provides a competitive edge to develop personal and social skills for all students in the Academy. There are 4 houses: Discovery, Endeavour, Challenger and Voyager and all students and staff belong to a designated house. Each house is led by a member of staff supported by four Sixth Form House Captains.
Discovery: Mr Wandi with Drew Coleman, Chiara Wengraf-Jones, Joni Hoti and Jason Akbulut.
Endeavour: Ms Khan with Ayrean Hossain, Sarangan Balasundram, Orla Lamb and Nudrat Shakir.
Challenger: Miss McGruther with Adeola Warner, Danay Soloman, Mariam Aziz and Adedayo Bashorun.
Voyager: Mr Sellars with Georgia Kiddell, Omar Naviwala, Noa Driver and Jenny Hyseni.
House activities are varied ranging from the Great Ashcroft Bake to Countdown with impressive levels of participation.
