Our House System is designed to embody the core values of the Olympics and is an integral part of our school community.
All students and staff at Biddick Academy belong to one of our four Houses:
We actively encourage competition between the Houses in sport, attendance, academic work and other areas.
The House System is used to develop a culture of competition across the Academy with the aim to increase motivation, attendance, attainment and positive attitudes towards others.
Other benefits to the House system include:
Biddick is a popular and oversubscribed Academy, mainly serving the south of Washington, with around 1100 students on roll. We make a commitment to staffing and as a result we have one of the lowest teacher pupil ratios in the area.
Most of our students have English as a first language; the number of pupils with learning disabilities and the proportion entitled to free school meals are below average.
