Introduction

Welcome to Victory House! Our slogan is “Be Devoted; Be Victorious; Be successful”. We really do see ourselves as one big, happy family – staff and students are proud to be part of our House and do their best to make everyone feel welcome, supported and safe.

In our first House assembly of the year, we talked about what “Be Devoted; Be Victorious; Be successful” means to us. This is what we agreed to try:

BIGGER contributions to charity events, the shoebox appeal and to our local community.
BRIGHTER life chances for everyone, by developing the skills and qualities needed in the real world, as well as gaining the best qualifications possible.
BETTER standards, behaviour, attendance and punctuality.

Student leadership is at the heart of everything we do in Victory. We have an amazing team of prefects, led by our House and Vice Captains. They are so proactive in our House, helping to improve standards, lead activities, take part in assemblies and contributing to charity events. As well as prefects, we have peer and behaviour mentors, who work with students needing a little bit of support – we all know that sometimes students would rather speak to each other than to a teacher! The mentors are all trained in peer counselling skills so that we know both mentors and mentees can make the most of this opportunity.

Within forms, students of all ages get involved in leading activities, mentoring each other, supporting new students, preparing assemblies and taking part in fundraising.

We like to think we are the best House, but then every House would say the same!

How can you help?

Our annual shoebox appeal is a huge part Victory’s ethos and something we are really proud of. This year we are working with a new charity called Children in Distress; they are based in Guisborough and deliver shoeboxes to the poorest children in Romania and the Balkans. Their motto is “Cure… sometimes; Help… often; Care… always” which we like to think is what we stand for too. We can take shoebox items from you all year round, but our main push is from September to November.

The Children in Distress appeal collects shoeboxes for children aged 0-16, and also for elderly people.

Items of interest which we collect all year round:
Toothbrushes, toothpaste, flannels / sponges, soap, hairbrushes / combs, small toys / games, pens / pencils etc, paper / colouring books, coloured pencils / crayons / felt tips, teddies, dolls, hats / scarves / gloves, hair accessories, make-up items. No liquids, war-themed items or books please.

We also urgently need empty shoeboxes as we no longer have access to the flat-packed one. If you would like to wrap them and send them in wrapped, we would be immensely grateful, as this is very time consuming!

If you have any comments, concerns or questions about anything to do with Victory, please contact your child’s form tutor in the first instance. They will be happy to help if they can.
