Introduction

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.

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!
