Welcome to Valiant House! Our slogan is ‘Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Valiant’, this is what we aspire all our students to be. The definition of Valiant is ‘Possessing or showing courage or determination’, Oxford Dictionary, 2016. With the support of fellow students and staff we hope that all Valiant students demonstrate this determination to achieve well at Nunthorpe. We aim as a house to have a safe, supportive, meaningful atmosphere where staff and students put in 100% effort and enjoy their time here.
We believe that we are a big family within the academy. The students within the house are involved in activities, inter form competitions, community builder’s assemblies and discuss SMSC topics. We have an amazing team of form tutors, prefects and students who strive to improve the house through ‘Valiant Voice’’, Prefect duties, Junior Prefects and School Council. We also have a fantastic team of Year 11 mentors who support younger students within the house to help them feel that they belong no matter what they may be going through.
We hope that your child will be successful whilst they are part of the Valiant House and as a parent/carer please contact your child’s form tutor, Senior Pastoral Manager Mrs Shackleton or Assistant Pastoral Manager Mr Harrison if you require any support / information.

Message from the House Captains
With over four years of experience at Nunthorpe, the Valiant prefects are able to support and advise those who require extra help or guidance. Our team is devoted to creating the family-like atmosphere and sense of belonging that makes Valiant house so unique. We, along with our tutors and pastoral team, strive to live by our house motto: “Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Valiant!” and to encourage our fellow students to do the same.
As well as being people who other students can talk to, part of our role as prefects is to perform various form-time duties, such as the food bank collection at Christmas. By doing this, we become even more involved in the function of Valiant house and can continue to be a part of the Valiant community.
I believe I speak on behalf of all of the prefect team when I say that our main goal is to give back to the house that has supported us throughout our journey at Nunthorpe Academy and that we hope to help Valiant, and the students who make it, thrive in the years to come.

How can you help?
As parents and staff we try to have an open relationship with all our parents and carers. We feel that a supportive unit between school and home will ensure your child achieves to the best of their ability, may it be academically, psychologically or socially. So as parents we hope that you will keep those ways of communication open for form tutors, teacher and the Pastoral team.
Valiant house also try to aspire our students to achieve their dreams, if you are a professional person and feel that a student or a small group of students would benefit from a careers talk or tour then please get in touch (contact details can be found in the column on the right at the top). We are trying to get the students to look at the world of work and dream big!
