Hello! And welcome to Phoenix! High school can be a daunting task for anyone, especially the new year 7’s, but as a united house, we are here for anyone and everyone. Help with homework? Needing information? In phoenix we aim to support, no matter what the question or query. We want all students to feel happy and safe in school, and teachers and students like to do their utmost best to make sure this is established. Our progress leader Miss Meade also happens to be a brilliant geography teacher, another bonus of being in our house! As proven by previous sports days, we are extremely successful at our physical educational events and take pride in our incredibly loud support from the sidelines, showing yet another example of our strong community spirit.
So there you have it! A quick yet informative write up about Phoenix House. Our mythical creature was said to rise from the ashes, and as we do, rise every time.
Phoenix is a house that you should be proud to be part of. They are a fantastic group of pupils who strive for excellence and have achieved outstanding success at sporting competitions and musical talent. Pupils support each other, care for one another and have a common goal to be the best. They are supported by a range of fantastic form tutors who help pupils settle in and help them to achieve their goals.

The Phoenix is a symbol or renewal, a symbol of a new beginning, they represent the new chances you have and that the end can also be the beginning.
