VIVERE ET DISCE
(LIVE TO LEARN)
We as a house enjoy the journey we take together, supporting those who tire or have traumatic events overtake them. Looking out for each other, ensuring an open door to those in need. From year 7 to year 11 sees a mammoth physical and emotional change as our students develop, we aim to set their compass, open up horizons and give them the confidence and tools to progress.
As Head of House my role is clear:
Set standards which students can confidently attain: Punctuality, Politeness, Honesty.
Allow students to realise that they and we as adults will not always know the answer but never be afraid to ask for help and guidance.
All students are equal irrespective of background, the unlocking of potential is prime and all doors are open, always!
Ensure that attendance is as good as it can be, given individual physical and mental constraints, we are all different.
Supporting and developing our mutual growth, trying to find peace in troubled times and enjoying success and understanding shortfalls are fundamental to our continued journey. As each year moves forward on the conveyor belt of education, preparing students for the oncoming change is fundamental to their enjoyment of their school experience.
Success as a house is measured in each individual’s attainment; how far they have come along the pathway to individual realisation and the awareness they have of the welfare of those with whom they share their school hours.
Charity has always been a staple of Harris Church of England Academy Canterbury House was the only House to realise an outcome to the Lenten Charity period. Many activities were undertaken; Sweets in a Jar, Hot Dogs and a glorious exhibition of courage by Mr Browning and students from Year 11, abseiling down Coventry Cathedral! The full amount is not yet in but the abseiling alone netted £1,642.
Canterbury House wishes Durham, Winchester and York every success when we return. God bless you all and may He keep you safe.
