Bridgnorth Endowed is pleased to announce two new Heads of House to join Mr Middleton who continues as leader of Hardwicke for the fifteenth year running.
Computer Science teacher, Mr Akhtar, takes up the prized mantle for Washbrook and PE teacher, Mr Chase, heads up reigning house champions, Rowley.
About his new role, Mr Chase said: “I’m really privileged and honoured to have been asked to become Head of Rowley House, and I’m so proud that during lockdown we managed to secure the House Cup.”
“As defending champions, I urge pupils to continue with their hard work and efforts by handing in homework, being on time and taking pride in how they’re perceived in the community.”
Mr Akhtar commented: “I’ve been teaching at this fantastic school for 12 years and I’m immensely proud of now taking on the responsibility of being Head of House.”
“I believe that building strong relationships between teachers and students is something that is extremely important and I will be there to support everyone in Washbrook.”
During a recent video address to students, the three clearly have plenty of plans for their houses and this year’s competition promises to be exciting and hard-fought, despite the current restrictions.
Head of Hardwicke, Mr Middleton, concluded: “We’ve got a very challenging year ahead of us, so we need to work hard, be considerate and be compassionate with each other. In that way, we’ll do really well.”
First on the to-do list has been for each leader to select their House Captains, who will go on to organise events, work on a variety of initiatives and ensure that the student voice is well-represented.
Congratulations to our new House Captains and good luck for the year ahead.
