Inspire, Empower and Motivate
At Attenborough, we believe that our learners benefit greatly from being members of mixed-age school house teams. Such opportunities to work, learn and succeed in mixed age collaboration, strengthens communication and knowledge of each other. Positive relationships develop and this encourages our learners to support each other socially, emotionally and academically. Our House system empowers a strong sense of responsibility and belonging, in addition to inspiring a ‘changemaker’ mindset for the future. All learners have the opportunity to participate and compete in a range of additional learning activities, competitions and events in school.
