The South Wolverhamtpon & Bilston Academy

House Information

The House system is an integral part of life at SWB Academy, indeed our whole building is framed around House with each floor named after and colour coded according to a House.  Houses contain a broad mix of students across Year 7 to Year 11. There are 4 Houses at SWB Academy;

Sanderson House named after Olympic Gold Medallist, Tessa Sanderson
Weston House named after inspirational veteran of the Falkland’s War, Simon Weston
Brindley House named after famous engineer, James Brindley
Attwood House named after local motor-racing driver, Dickie Attwood
Sixth Form a separate House for Sixth Form students only

 

House Leaders

The Houses provide an opportunity for students to mix with other students of all ages, and staff they may not be familiar with in a spirit of community and competition.  Student designation to a House is identified by the coloured stripe on their tie. House events, competitions and celebrations run throughout the year.

Our House Leaders are recruited on an annual basis to allow all members of staff to have the opportunity to gain this excellent experience. House Leaders for 2016/17 are:

Sanderson House Mr G Woodhouse
Weston House Mrs L Rownes
Brindley House Miss L Alexander
Attwood House Mr B Lawley
