We believe in creating smaller family units at Trentham Academy. This structure forms the basis for our House System and permeates all aspects of school life.
We have five Houses:
- Salamander (green)
- Phoenix (red)
- Griffin (blue)
- Dragon (purple)
- Centaur (yellow)
Each House is led by a Progress Leader. All students and staff are members of a House. This creates lively and energetic competition in sport, the arts, core subjects, attendance & punctuality and academic achievement.
Students at Trentham Academy are all placed into House tutor groups. A student in Year 7 will therefore be placed in a tutor group comprising of fellow year 7 students and a number of Year 8, 9, 10 & 11 students forming a vertical tutor group. This enables older students to support and ‘buddy’ Year 7 students in all aspects of school life, contributing to our nurturing ethos.
Our House system is the link between academic performance and pastoral care in the school. Houses meet regularly on a formal and social basis.
