New Houses

New Houses

This term, we rebranded our House system. We have four new houses each representing very important virtues: passion, equality, creativity and endurance. 

The house names were inspired by notable men and women throughout history who have been recognised for their outstanding efforts and achievements through Blue Plaques that relate to the area of Kensington and Chelsea. They are made up of a chemist, a political activist, musician and Antarctic explorer - you can find out more about them here. 

Rosalind Elsie Franklin was an English chemist and X-ray crystallographer whose work was central to the understanding of the molecular structures of DNA, RNA, viruses, coal, and graphite. 

Emmeline Pankhurst (born Emmeline Goulden; 14 July 1858 – 14 June 1928) was a British political activist. She is best remembered for organizing the UK suffragette movement and helping women win the right to vote. 

Robert (Bob) Nesta Marley, (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican singer, songwriter, and musician. Considered one of the pioneers of reggae, his musical career was marked by fusing elements of reggae, ska, and rocksteady, as well as his distinctive vocal and songwriting style. Marley's contributions to music increased the visibility of Jamaican music worldwide, and made him a global figure in popular culture for over a decade. 

Captain Robert Falcon Scott was a Royal Navy officer and explorer who led two expeditions to the Antarctic regions: the Discovery expedition of 1901–1904 and the ill-fated Terra Nova expedition of 1910–1913.
