Animus House


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. This can be achieved by following the Animus ABC’s:

- Attend every day – it is proven that students who attend achieving higher grades than students who don’t. This is because you have access to experts in their fields who trained to be able to teach you.

B – Behave in a sensible manner at all times – If you are focused on your learning you will enjoy school more and will not be having to extra hours.

C – Challenge yourself to be the best you can be – if you never try, how will you know what you are capable of. If you don’t succeed try again, no one will ever be upset with students who have a go.

You are all capable as shown by the team effort which resulted in Animus winning sports day and the House competitions for 2021-22 which has not been achieved for a very long time.
