Our academy house system is an integral part of our school community and provides pupils with a sense of identification. The school has designed a vertical House system which has three core values: Healthy competition, ownership and determination. Every pupil and staff member at The Rowans are assigned to a house.
The four houses are:
The house names were chosen by pupils at The Rowans, who then designed logos to represent each house.
The Rowans Houses:
|Head of house||Miss King|
|Deputy head of house||Miss Harris|
|House motto||Respect all, fear none.|
|Head of house||Mr Cox|
|Deputy head of house||Miss Horsley|
|House motto||Winning is habit, success is choice.|
|Head of house||Miss Ravate|
|Deputy head of house||Mrs Gale|
|House motto||Winners don't wait for chances, they take them.|
|Head of house||Mr Hake|
|Deputy head of house||Miss Clayton|
|House motto||The true champion believes in the impossible.|
The House system focuses on celebrating success. When a pupil demonstrates our core values of: kindness, commitment or resilience they are rewarded with house points.
These points all tally up towards the house total and help determine the overall winning house at the end of the year. Pupils can gain extra points for their house if they are awarded student of the week, or receive a positive postcard home. Throughout the academic year pupils also have opportunities to participate in a number of inter-house competitions, where points can be gained for their houses.
