Houses and Year Groups

The Houses at Blackminster are Discovery, Endeavour and Resolution. These were the names of some of the ships sailed by James Cook; the explorer, navigator and cartographer. We felt that the link with Cook's scientific and geographical legacy was significant, but also that the names sum up the qualities that we want to develop in our students. Parents and carers will have the opportunity to meet with their child's tutor early next academic year in the Meet the Tutor evenings - you will be advised of the dates and how to make appointments nearer the time.
