Changing our Houses
To reflect our support for Black Lives Matter, we are looking to change the names of our houses from the Elizabethan sea captains Drake, Grenville and Hawkins.
Cousins Sir Francis Drake and Sir John Hawkins were deeply involved in the slave trade. They captured African slaves and sold them in the Americas.
With the help of our pupils, we will choose three new names – they will be representative of our diverse community.
