This week marked the exciting launch of our first House assemblies of 2024. Pupils attended in their respective Houses – Brocket, Elk, Fallow, and Sika – to celebrate achievements, learn about our new rewards system, and foster a sense of community.
The results of our current House Points standings were also shared. After half term and the first week of the Spring Term, Fallow is leading the charge with an impressive 13,121 House Points, closely followed by Brocket with 12,925, Sika with 12,813, and Elk with 11,707. Together, we’ve awarded over 50,000 House Points this academic year – an outstanding 3,160 per week!
In honour of LGBTQ+ History Month in February, our first House Event invites pupils to create celebration bunting as form groups, exemplifying our school value of respect. This initiative not only fosters creativity but also provides an opportunity to bridge the gap between Houses, with five House Points up for grabs for each member of the winning form per year group.
Our assemblies centred around the theme of community, emphasising that each House is a collaborative team. An informative video was played, which showcased the significance of community, reinforcing the strong bonds within our school. From the coloured ties representing Houses to the commendable efforts of our ‘CTA Wombles’ who frequently litter-pick in our community, interform competitions, and sports days – Chase Terrace Academy truly embodies the essence of community within the Houses.
Pictured here are Androniki, Lucie, Fin and Charlie, who are amongst the top House-Point earners for their House! They consistently represent the school values and are excellent role models for the wider school community.
As we continue into the Spring Term, we encourage every pupil to keep earning those valuable house points. Aim high, as the winning House at the end of the year will be celebrated in style during our rewards celebrations!
Let’s continue the spirit of tenacity, collaboration, and respect as we journey through the academic year together.
