The House System

House System

At Shire Oak Academy we have a three house system. Upon starting at the Academy, all students will be allocated to a House for whom they will earn house points through various activities both inside and outside the classroom. Each year the house with the most house points is awarded the house cup.

Darwin

Darwin house is named after the late English scientist Charles Darwin who played an important role in the discovery of the theory of evolution. His proposition that all species of life have descended from common ancestors is now widely accepted. Students in Darwin house have a strong history of success, having so far being crowned house champions most often since the house system was established in 2014. Our motto is ‘a step ahead’, a nod to the good work of Charles Darwin, one which aptly describes our culture and keeps us a step ahead of the competition.

Head of House

Faraday house is named after Michael Faraday who was best known for discovering electricity in the 19th Century. Faraday competitors, under the motto 'Bright Sparks', have been extremely successful over the past 2 years winning both house championship and sports day in consecutive years. Hopefully this will continue into next year where we can tackle the new challenges that lie ahead. Here's to a successful 2020/2021!
