‘If you can dream it you can do it’ – Walt Disney
Usk House strives to be a safe and welcoming support mechanism for its students. The staff in Usk House ensure the students are challenged academically through regular monitoring and coaching by Miss Williams and Mr Knight. The form tutors in Usk House act as the first point of contact for students and parents and use form time to challenge students on key social, economic, health and lifestyle topics. These link in the whole schools topics which form the basis of assemblies and daily acts of reflection. The Usk House motto is ‘If you can dream it you can do it’. As the House Leader I want every student’s time with the house to be an opportunity for them to discover passions that will help form their adult life. To achieve this they need to be exposed to a variety of experiences and allowed to express themselves through these opportunities. Those that develop a passion to achieve will in turn develop their own aspirations for their future. It is then our job to support and help every student realise their potential.
