Welcome to the home of the ‘Green heroes’! “Endeavour Forever”
We encourage everyone in our House to endeavour to be the best they can be, although in the words of one of our most famous, Kermit the Frog, ‘It’s not easy being Green’.
Our previous honours have included winning the Inter-House Event Trophy in 2013/14.
The Head of Endeavour House is Mr Anderson with Mrs Griffin and Miss Green as Deputy Heads of House.
For 2015-16 our Pupil Heads of House are Hannah Huggins and Jake Perkins, ably assisted by William Walsh and Abbie Jackson as Deputy Heads.
Enterprise (yellow) are currently the reigning Sports Cup holders 2013/2014 and finished second in the overall House Trophy.
We don’t necessarily have the most able pupils in the house but when it comes to representing the house we have a very committed and enthusiastic group of pupils. The fact that we have pupils in the house who take part in all the activities throughout the year ensured we won the Trophy. Well done to all of you. Our heads of House were Bethan Jones and Jack Brannigan, who helped rally the pupils, spoke in assemblies and showed enthusiasm throughout the year, thank you to them.
Come Enterprise, I’d like both Trophies this year!
