Whittle is one of the four houses within Southam College, named after Sir Frank Whittle, inventor of the jet engine. Our House colour is red and Mrs Morten is the Head of House.
After coming third last year, I am keen to prove that we can unite as a house and win the cup!
Whittle students are renowned for their excellent participation and willingness to go above and beyond what is expected of them. They always have a go and do their best!
Our great Sixth Form House Captains for the academic year 2016-2017 are Hannah Kasongo and Scott Martin with our Vice Captains being Caitlin Smillie and Richard Andrews. All of whom are going to help maximise the potential of our house.
Throughout the year Whittle students can participate in a wide range of activities such as sport competitions, reading challenges, departmental based competitions and other clubs to earn house achievement points called HAPS. The main way to collect HAPS is through outstanding effort, behaviour and work in lessons. Whittle students can also earn HAPS through being polite and helpful towards staff members. Remember participation is key!
Lets turn this year around and progress towards winning the house cup!
Mrs Morten, Head of Whittle

Huge congratulations to our house captains and vice captains for the academic year 2017-2018.
