I believe I have a very special outlook on the House system at Banovallum School because I have had an affiliation with all of the houses since the house system began. I have been a tutor in Spitfire and Hurricane and my children are currently in Lancaster.

Being asked to lead Hurricane House was the start of a wonderful journey. A journey that is special because of my dedicated tutors and enthusiastic pupils. Our house has won sports day 2 years running but we haven’t won the overall house competition and that gives us the drive to strive every day to fulfil our dreams and to be the best we can.

I often say to the pupils ‘If you can stand tall and say honestly I did my best, I will always be proud of them even if we are last.’
