Animus House

Animus Students

Animus –our motto ‘vie et animo’ means heart and soul, and I sincerely hope and trust that all team members of Animus House will always do their best to make it a very happy and successful house to be proud of.

My simple message to you all is to always try and put your heart and soul in all you do and be the best you can be.

Behaviour- as in ‘best’-always create a favourable impression
Endurance-when the going gets tough, the tough keep going

Try, try and try again if success has fallen short
Heroes, role models, brilliant friends/colleagues... look, listen, learn.
Enable and engage man is an island

Broaden your outlook–think ’out of the box’
Enthusiasm in whatever you do goes a very long way
Seize the day
Take the positives, play to your strengths

You must believe in true to your potential
Only the best is good enough
Utilise all tools at your disposal

Challenge and contribute
Appearance-whatever you are doing-look the part!
Never say, ‘never’--anything and everything is possible

Be nice to others -what goes around comes around
Enjoy life-make the very best of it-it is not a rehearsal!

Year Group Bubbles

In line with Governmental instructions to help keep students safe, we are implementing a new school one way system and Year group bubbles. The bubbles apply from the moment students arrive on site to the end of the day. The only time we anticipate students to mix out of their Year group is when changing lessons and when using the main school toilets.

The students will mostly be taught in specific blocks in order to keep the bubbles as secure as possible. For more information on Year Group bubbles, please click here.
