Every student who attends Southmoor Academy is a member of a ‘house’. The houses are made up of all students from Year 7 right up to Year 13. Each student is given a badge of the house they represent during their time at the school. House badges are part of the Southmoor Academy’s uniform and must be displayed on the lapel of the blazer of every student. A student will remain within the same house from year to year.
Each House at Southmoor Academy is named for a mythological creature or being. The four Houses are: Griffin, Phoenix, Pegasus & Triton. Every House has a House Leader who is responsible for the care and well being of pupils within their House.
Houses are intended to form a bond between pupils beyond their year groups and also promote and celebrates success. When a student makes excellent progress in their development, shows excellent habits of behaviour or learning, or makes a positive contribution to the school and its wider community, they will also help also their House gain greater recognition. It is this spirit of healthy competition between houses that we hope will promote a positive sense of community within our school.
Currently our House System is under review, please check back to this page soon to find out more about the plans we have in store for the four Southmoor Houses. For information on which form groups are in each house, please see below.
