The Elms Academy has a thriving ‘House System’. In their houses, students participate in a range of activities including competitions, sporting events and charity fundraising events. This is designed to encourage students to extend their learning in a range of curriculum areas including art, sport, drama and core subjects, too. Through the House system students develop their sense of community cohesion and responsibility. It provides the framework by which all students are challenged and supported to achieve their best and to help others.
The house system runs vertically (houses consist in pupils from all years in the academy) and is based on our vision for building strong community and character.
Each house has a staff member who is the designated Head of House, as well as a student leadership team for each house. Each house shield and character quality can be seen below:
