The House system is at the heart of what we do at Watling Academy. Throughout their time at the Academy students will earn House Points in lessons and compete against each other in a range of events. These include subject based challenges, sporting tournaments and competitions based around our core values of Respect, Responsibility and Kindness and our curriculum themes of STEM, Milton Keynes and Sustainability.
The first Watling students were responsible for choosing the house names. As part of their induction they were asked to nominate people who they felt represented the Watling Academy core values, they chose-
As you have probably spotted these are all people who have made a significant contribution to Milton Keynes.
Our students were also involved in the design of our House Logos, each House group was tasked with producing a design brief of what they wanted their house logo to look like. Our very own Ms Piper acted on the design briefs to produce these fantastic logos.
Students have been earning points throughout the year in a variety of events and we look forward to crowning our first Watling Academy House champions at the end of the year.
