Our House System
The development of a strong culture is a vital part of our schools. We believe that pupils need to be provided with opportunities to develop as young people, to gain a sense of community, and to experience and share success with others. One way in which we provide such opportunities is through our House System.
Here at Wayland Academy, we are extremely proud of the House System we have created and the attached values. It embodies all that we stand for and is the vehicle in which our culture is lived through each day. It encourages pupil development through access to a wide range of experiences and motivates students to work together to share ideas, allowing them to learn from each other.
Each of our Houses has a House Leader and every pupil and staff member is expected to be part of a House.
Each school within the Inspiration Trust has a House System and as part of the wider trust, we are delighted to be able to offer our students the opportunity to participate in numerous exciting inter-trust events and competitions, all of which promote and inspire teamwork, while creating a unique sense of belonging to something bigger than one's self.
When students join the academy, they will be placed in a tutor group of approximately 30 students with their own Form Tutor. All students are allocated to one of four houses:
Each house comprises of a Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 tutor group.
Students engage in a wide range of house-themed competitions and challenges, the biggest of which is our highly competitive sports day. All house competitions are linked to the academy rewards system.
