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.
