Castle Manor Academy

Community asked to help name new school house

Published: 24 January, 2022

A Haverhill secondary school is calling on the community to help name it’s new school house.

The growth of Castle Manor Academy has led to the formation of a fifth, as yet unnamed, student house.

The community is now being asked to help name the new house – following in the footsteps of the school’s four Haverhill-inspired titles.

Headteacher Vanessa Whitcombe explained: “The school has increased by about 150 students in the last five years and we now think it is the right time to add a fifth house.

“We currently have Chantry, Hamlet, Helions and Wilsey and we are asking the public to help us name the fifth house along a similar theme.

“For students, being part of a house is a badge of honour. They can earn rewards for their house by taking part in weekly events, as a reward for good behaviour and sports day.

“Castle Manor is proud to play a special part in our local community and we look forward to hearing what the public think our fifth house should be called.”

Alongside the community engagement, students will be asked for their ideas before a decision is made after the February half term.
