As part of Stowe Valley Multi Academy trusts celebrations of Global Virtues week, we asked students to send in one photograph which they believed illustrated a 'celebration of our lives.'
Heads of House
Miss Alcock, Head of Godiva
Ms Brereton, Head of Shakespeare
Mr Oliver-Smith, Head of Webb Ellis
Mrs Morten, Head of Whittle
All students are placed into one of four houses: Godiva (Blue), Webb Ellis (Yellow) Shakespeare (Purple) or Whittle (Red).
The aim of the house system is to create the best possible ethos for students’ personal and social development and for the achievement of their potential in all aspects of college life. This is achieved through encouraging all students to take part in house activities and to give a sense of belonging and participation, whilst at the same time helping others less fortunate than themselves. Older students are encouraged to play a nurturing role to create a family atmosphere and to provide role models to younger students. All student leaders are expected to model our values of kindness, confidence and resilience at all times and to inspire other students to follow their example.
Students also have the opportunity to represent their house and tutor group by taking part in the College Council which is chaired by the Head boy and Head girl.
The Trustees hosted the inaugural annual Conference of the Stowe Valley MAT on 26th January 2019, bringing together the Trust Board, Local Governors, Headteachers and MAT Staff.
2018 Theme - Time
What is time and how do we represent it visually? Photography captures moments in time but the theme of 'time' can be explored in many different ways.
