HOUSES at GOLDINGTON ACADEMY
Why have houses?
We feel the children benefit from being members of mixed age school teams. It helps develop opportunities for year groups to work together, encourages children to support each other, gives them a strong sense of responsibility and belonging and provides them with a range of additional activities to take part in.
How many houses are there?
There are six houses with balanced numbers of boys and girls and numbers from each year group. Children are not moved into another house and will remain in their house now for their four years at Goldington.
How have the houses been named?
Each house has been named after a famous Bedfordian Olympian or Paralympian athlete who has represented GB in the 2008 or 2012 Olympic Games. The teams are: Emms, Foster, Frezza, Pendleton, Rogers and Stott. We are currently organising for the athletes to visit the School so that pupils have the chance to meet their role models.
