Humberston Academy

Humberston is an outstanding academy proud of our exceptionally high standards and traditional ethos. We offer a diverse enrichment programme in order to develop skills outside of the classroom.

Houses

Through a staff working party and consultation with our student representatives; it was agreed that our house names will be attributes that allow success to occur.

This is part of our Academy’s initiative to stretch each student to achieve and possibly exceed their academic potential.

The houses were shortlisted and then voted by every student within the Academy. Determination, Resilience, Endeavour, Ambition and Motivation were the five houses chosen which create the word ‘DREAM’.

It is hoped that if the students can demonstrate the five qualities, they can achieve their aspirations or ‘dreams’, whether it is academically, personally or recreationally.

All students should wear their house badge at the bottom of their left blazer pocket, below the Humberston Academy badge.

In order to establish our new House system we will have appointed Head of Houses and House Captains to support our inter-house programme which takes place through the academic year which includes sports, performing arts, debating and other exciting opportunities.
