“Ask not what your house can do for you, but what you can do for your house!”
I am proud to be Head of Atlas House and excited by the potential we have to make the school a great place in which to grow and learn. Working together, the students and staff of Atlas can strive to be the best we can be. We can create an environment that gives us all the chance to make our lives at SBL purposeful and successful.
I expect students in Atlas to be supportive and respectful of one another. I expect students in Atlas to be ‘doers’, people who make things happen; everyone has something to offer. What you put in is what you get out. Perhaps most importantly, I expect Atlas students to persevere, to give it their best shot, and not be afraid to fail. We learn from our mistakes; we may fail again, but we will fail better! Perseverance leads to growth and eventually to success.
I have been at SBL for 12 years and have taught all year groups and abilities in that time, with English Literature and A Level as my specialism. Prior to assuming the role of Head of House, I was Dean of Post 16. As once a student and now a teacher, I have learned how important hard work, parental support and great teaching are to a young person’s development. The staff in Atlas House will aim to do all we can to provide a caring school environment that allows the students in our care to flourish, succeed and be happy.
