House System

House System

 

 

This September we launched our new BACA house system.  The Academy has been split into four houses Centaur, Gryphon, Minotaur and Pegasus. All students and staff, apart from the Principal, Mr Speight and the Vice Principal, Mr Collett, are allocated to a house.  The aims of the house system are:

  • To foster team spirit, collaboration and a sense of family across year groups
  • To incentivise positive behaviour for learning and celebrate positive individual and group performance
  • To provide a stimulus to intra-mural sports, creative arts and enterprise activities
  • To stimulate collaboration between staff from different faculties and parts of the school
  • To complement and strengthen existing individual rewards and celebration initiatives
  • To give leadership opportunities to older students and further integrate the BACA College sixth form into Academy life

 

House Events & Assemblies

A calendar of house events and regular assemblies are in place to give students plenty of opportunities to contribute to their house point totals in a number of ways both in and out of the classroom.  These include points for: subject led challenges, sports competitions, reading group rewards, attendance rewards, and commitment to after school enrichment and independent learning challenges.  The house system will also support the development of student leadership within the academy with the appointment of house leaders, sports leaders as well as opportunities for BACA College sixth form students to lead challenges.  See the latest challenges and winners by following the link below.
