Avebury House

Welcome to Avebury House!

I am proud and excited to be continuing as Head of Avebury house this academic year. Our aim for the house system is to create an inclusive community where all students have a sense of belonging and pride. In this environment, we aim to build strong relationships through healthy competition.

I had the pleasure of being appointed Head of Avebury last year and was delighted when we won the House Cup which was an amazing achievement! The enthusiasm, effort and commitment to all aspects of school life was outstanding and I hope for the same this year!

Although last academic year was cut short due to lockdown, it was fantastic to still see students represent the House in our Race Across America Challenge, House Sport, The Great Ridgeway Bake Off and much more.

The Heads of House have big plans for this year with lots of different events to include all students regardless of age, interests and ability. This includes The Great Ridgeway Bake Off, Ridgeway’s Got Talent, Spelling Bee, Countdown, a Cultural Fair and much more! Also, engaging the wider ethos of the school to fundraise for the House Charities and events such as Children and Need and Sport Relief. The idea behind this is for all students to engage in and show pride, passion and most importantly for me, enjoyment!

Students will be rewarded for their commitment to the House and achievements in school through House Trips. These trips are at Christmas, Easter and in the Summer. As well as this, mentor groups are now competing for a trophy during every house activity to win those all-important league points!

Please follow the House Twitter page for all up to date information including results from weekly house activities, student shout-outs, achievement celebration, upcoming trips and events and much more!

If anyone has any questions about Avebury or the House System at The Ridgeway School, please do not hesitate to contact me via email

I am really looking forward to this year and continuing as Head of Avebury and cannot wait to see all students representing their house in a range of activities

Come on Avebury!
