House system


Yare Bure Ant Thurne


We will be introducing a house system across the school from September 2017.  In a nod to the history of the school, we have reformed the Houses based on local rivers. Our Houses for September will be Yare - yellow, Bure - blue, Ant - red and Thurne - Green.  Students have been asked to take part in a competition to design their house symbol and motto.  

Rivers have symbolic significance throughout our culture. They are symbols of freedom, transitions, life and the flow of time. Rivers are ever moving constants in an otherwise stationary world- they constantly change, move forward and find ways around obstacles to meet their destination. Just like a journey of a river, life at school can be full of twists and turns which our young people will overcome on their journey to their future.  Small rivers grow stronger as they join with others- just as students’ learning and development grows when you share that with others. Together, students have strength and power to over-come obstacles. 

Our house system also reflects our natural heritage in our beautiful landscape of Acle and surrounding areas. 

Students have been asked to take part in a competition to design their house symbol and motto. Details of forms and houses are included below:
