At Burnt Mill Academy we are extremely proud of our House system that fosters a sense of community and pride within our school. It gives you the opportunities to work together, and collaborate with others, from different year groups and friendship groups in fun and engaging events throughout the year.
The House system promotes healthy competition, that drives you to improve and be the best you can be. But more importantly, can also teach lessons about resilience and not giving up if you don’t succeed first time.
When joining the school each of our students is placed into one of our six houses. Each house is headed by a House Leader, a member of staff responsible for the House and the House Representatives, student leaders who together with the house leaders work to ensure all students are given opportunity and support to represent their house in one of our many house competitions. The House Representative role allows for the promotion of responsibility amongst the older students and allows them to build leadership and motivation skills.
