Chair of Governing Body
As a governor, I am proud to associate myself with Sir Robert Pattinson Academy. Student achievement is of a high standard and continues to improve year on year. I have been impressed by the achievement and the behaviour of the pupils at the academy; I feel they contribute to the academy and the local community in a positive way. They should be very proud to be associated with the school; I know I am.
The school is divided vertically into four houses, named after the great English and British royal houses: Stuart, Tudor, Windsor and York. House events include sporting, academic and cultural activities. Most house competitions take place after school, although some take place during the day, for example the athletics competition. In each activity, there is a prize for the winning house and points are earned which count towards the Governors’ Cup. This is awarded to the overall champion house each academic year. Students are expected and encouraged to take an active part in house activities and to become involved as often as possible.
