Stephenson House news

Stephenson House - Term 5 update

It is has been a relatively short term but it has still been action packed for the students of Stephenson House. Year 11 exams, charity week, house celebration evening, house leader interviews and more fun fix Friday events being a part of this

We wish Year 11 all the best with their exams in this busy four week period. They have been a real credit to the house and their diligence and hard work in this last year has been exemplary. I have also been impressed with the way in which they have thrown themselves into the house spirit

House Leaders

I would to place on record my huge thanks to Stephanie and Wren for being such a huge asset to Stephenson House in their role as house leaders. They have been superb in supporting students and have played an active role in developing the life of the house. They are real role models for Stephenson House and I look forward to announcing the new house leaders from Year 10 in term 6.

House Celebration Evening

On Thursday 2 May we had our first Stephenson House Celebration evening in the school dining hall. It was a wonderful evening celebrating the success of students both pastorally and on a faculty level. We saw an array of nominations and winners and I would like to congratulate all students who attended. Please see below the winners and nominees.

Term 5 challenge- tutor group of the term

This terms challenge was for tutor groups in Stephenson House to see who got the best behaviour ratio. This was a closely fought contest and I would like to congratulate 7S1 for taking home the title with an excellent score of 91%. They will win a prize as a tutor group in term 6.

Term 6 challenge will see the the top 10 students for praises win a lunch in the leaf!

Charity week

This week has seen Stephenson House raising money for Children’s Hospice South West through different organised events. These have included cake sales, sponsored litter picking, sweet sales, cinema event and chocolate bouquet raffle. We will know more about the total raised at the end of the week but I will like to place on record my thanks to all students in Stephenson House who have shown great determination in raising as much money as possible for an amazing cause.

House Competition

It is great to see so many students actively involved in the house competition through a number of different activities put on by the school. Stephenson are currently in joint first tied with Yousafzai as we move into term 6. This is down to great participation levels in getting students out for events. We have also been really successful in the Accelerated reader competition in Year 7 and 8 which is a great achievement. A big well done to the students representing the house in the Guiness Book of records fun fix Friday event where we came 2nd. As the academic year draws to a close I am looking forward to who will be crowned House Champions!!!

Mr Thomas, Head of Stephenson House
