Well Done Mandela House for being the Spring Cup Winners 2015!

How many houses are there?

At Kearsley Academy we have a house system, with three houses. The house names reflect our specialisms of Maths, (Einstein), Computing (Byron) and Leadership (Mandela).

Einstein (Maths) - Green

Albert Einstein 14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955, was a theoretical physicist, who created the equation formula 'E = mc2', what has been named as the "worlds most famous equation". His great intellectual achievements and originality have made the word "Einstein" synonymous with genius.

Byron (Computing) - Yellow

Ada Byron 10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852 was a woman of many talents including writing and mathematics. It is her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine for which she is most famous. Because of this, she is often considered the world's first computer programmer as well as developing a vision on the capability of computers to go beyond mere calculating or number-crunching.

Mandela (Leadership) - Blue

Nelson Mandela born 18 July 1918 is a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. Throughout his life he has received over 250 honours, including the Nobel Peace Prize. He is held with deep respect and often described as "father of the nation".

What are the houses?

All students and staff are divided into houses through form groups. Each form elects two form / house representatives who lead the house system within their form and represent student council duties.
The three houses are Einstein (Maths), Byron (Computing), and Mandela (Leadership).

What are house points?

Activities that focus on 'growth mindset', sporting and academic achievements take place throughout the year and contribute to the overall house point score.
