Bussell House Overview

In Bussell House we strive to create a safe, fun and caring community. We aim to be positive, friendly and helpful throughout our days at the Academy. We celebrate success regularly for progress, attendance and effort, alongside celebrating students’ achievements outside the Academy. There are a wealth of opportunities for all students in Bussell House including Inter-House, House Day, Sports Day and the House Singing Competition. The students are encouraged to be ambitious and work together to create a positive learning environment in which they are responsible and respectful. Above all we work as a team to ensure each day we are achieving, aiming high and enjoying all the experiences on offer at the Academy.

We are proud to have Darcey Bussell as our patron and we feel her achievement, commitment and passion sum up our house motto;

“Each day is a new life. Seize it. Live it.”

Darcey Bussell had a long and successful career as a Dancer. She trained at The Royal Ballet School and worked hard to earn the position of Principal Dancer. She has written a range of Children’s books and has taken part in the show Viva La Diva.
