Head of House's Introduction

As Head of Hanover House, I aim to ensure that all students receive high quality pastoral
and academic support from the Hanover tutor team which prepares them and gives them
the confidence to access all aspects of life at the Academy. I will endeavour to get to know
all Hanover students, engage in positive conversations with them and be able to celebrate
all their personal attributes that will make Hanover a diverse and special house.
Upon joining Churchill, students are allocated into one of the twelve Hanover House Tutor
Groups. Students get the opportunity to enjoy twenty minutes at the start of every school
day in these groups. Tutors are the integral first point of contact for all students and families
and build a close positive professional relationship with their tutees. The Tutor Group acts
as a small school family with a vertical tutoring system that promotes friendships across all
year groups. Younger students will also be paired with an older ‘student buddy’ that
provides a further network of peer support. In Tutor Time students socialise with their peers
and receive important messages for the day ahead. Tutors follow a Tutor Time Programme
through the week, with one morning dedicated to silent reading, another to issues raised
relating to Inclusion and Diversity, there is a weekly assembly slot, and another morning
see’s tutor groups pitched against each other with quizzes and challenges. Finally there is a
slot for tutors to reflect on their tutees behaviour data and celebrate their successes.
As a student in Hanover house and of the academy, they will be able to participate in house
competitions, represent the school in sporting fixtures, participate in Performing Arts
shows, play chess and much, much more.
I would once again like to welcome you to the Hanover House section of the Churchill
Academy website

House Identity

Prior to me becoming Head of Hanover House, the students had had the opportunity to
start to forge a House Identity. They had been given the opportunity to suggest and vote for
a number of things that reflect Hanover House. Here’s what the students came up with;


Charity: Cancer Research UK
Motto: Going for Gold!
Logo: Honey bees around their hive
Song: ‘Never going to give you up’ Rick Astley, ‘Gold’ Spandau Ballet
Mascot: We have several Bee costumes which fly around the Academy at different times of
the year!

I was delighted to be appointed the new Head of Hanover House at the start of this academic year,
although I have been teaching at Churchill Academy since September 2005 as a Geography teacher.

I love the outdoors, and frequently enjoy hiking in the mountains in this country and I’m also a keen
skier.

Student Leadership

Student voice is something that the pastoral team is working hard to develop to ensure that
students input is both valued and acted upon with the aim to develop that sense of
belonging to the school community. To assist in supporting this two year 11 students from
Hanover House are chosen to work alongside the House Captains from the other four
houses. House Captains act as role models for all students in their House and represent
these students at Academy meetings, events and fundraisers. The calibre of applicants for
this years’ house captaincy was exceptionally high which made the task a lovely problem to
solve.
We ask that all of our students follow the core Churchill values of Kindness, Curiosity and
Determination and our House captains are leading from the front with this with rewards
handed out at the end of term for those individuals who have represented these to a high
standard.  The student council has also been set up to allow student representatives from
each tutor group to work closely with Mr Davies to ensure student voice is represented at
all levels across the Academy. I look forward to seeing what they do!

House Captains

 Jaiden Morris

Hello, my name is Jaiden Morris, I'm 15 years old and one of Hanover's new house captains.
I am into playing and watching sports, especially football and am a keen Liverpool and Bristol City fan. I have supported Liverpool since I was 4 years old, but have never had the chance to watch a game at Anfield. I play striker for North Somerset and Clevedon under 18's. For my GCSEs I took history, geography, sports studies and art as I prefer working creatively than academically. I hope to go on and do sports journalism as a job as I'm into writing and sports obviously. I chose to apply to be house captain as it will give me a chance to apply for university and future jobs and to help other students around the school to help improve their time at Churchill Academy. I am very happy to have been given the role of House Captain and look forward to working with the rest of the Hanover students.

 Hi I’m Emily! I’m a year 11 student and Hanover House captain. I’m currently preparing for my GCSEs before heading to college next year. I decided to apply for House captain to bring a new perspective to the school and improve the school community. I am an advocate for diversity in the school and hope to make some very important progress this year in order for students and staff to make the most out of Churchill. My favourite subjects in school are History and English (specifically literature) which I would like to take for my A-levels along with psychology or design technology. Outside of school, I am a member of the air cadets. I am currently a corporal however I hope to continue to climb up the ranks. My favourite things about cadets are the camps, teamwork and of course the leadership, which I found has seriously improved my confidence. I also have an interest in music: I sing and play guitar. I take lessons in singing and am currently preparing for my grade 5 exam. I am excited to be a
House captain this year and look forward to taking up the duties of house captain and working with Hanover students
