This has been a year like no other! Despite all the challenges, there has been much to celebrate. In this, our final week, we have devoted ourselves to celebrating success – and awarding the House Cup!
House Cup: Attendance
We have only counted attendance up to March this year…for obvious reasons!
Congratulations to the overall winners: STUART HOUSE!
House Cup: Events
There have been a number of inter-house competitions this year. Not as many as we would have liked to have held, but we managed to squeeze some in!
House Cup: Attitude to Learning
For this competition, we take the average attitude to learning for every student in each house in each year group. All “Highly Motivated” grades scores 100%, and all “Disengaged” would score 0% (nobody actually scored this at Churchill!)
Many congratulations to the overall Attitude to Learning winners: TUDOR HOUSE!
House Cup: Conduct Points
For this competition we total up the net reward points for each house, and subtract any concern points issued. We also do an average score per student because there aren’t quite the same number of students in each house – but this year, that doesn’t change the overall standings!
Congratulations to the Conduct Points winners: TUDOR HOUSE!
House Cup: House Matches
We haven’t been able to hold all our House Matches this year, but we did have an inter-house virtual House Match Quiz during lockdown!
Congratulations to the overall House Matches winners: WINDSOR HOUSE!
House Cup: Virtual Sports Day
Sports Day is one of the highlights of the Academy Calendar. We didn’t let lockdown put us off, and Team PE ran a week-long virtual sports day this year instead! There were 1.3k hits on the website, with 880 entries from 600 unique users over the course of the week…with a nail-biting finale which went right to the wire!
House Cup: The Final Result
One of the privileges of being Headteacher is that I have no House allegiances at all. This means that I am the only one who has access to the top secret massive House Competition spreadsheet, where all of the points from all the competitions are fed into a secret formula to keep running totals and calculate the winner. And this year, the winner is…
Congratulations to Windsor, who ran out clear winners. Fortunately, Mr Cross was in school this week, so I was able to hand over the Sports Day Trophy and the House Cup, adorned with Windsor blue ribbons, for a quick photo. What a great way to mark his final year in charge of Windsor!
Next year, with five houses in the running and (we hope) the Academy open all year, all bets are off and it’s anyone’s game! Remember, every day you turn up to school, every reward point you earn, every grade you get on your report, every competition you take part in…they all contribute to your house total. Everybody counts. Well done to all of you for all your efforts this year!
