We use a house system at Prospect and every student is allocated to one of the following on arriving at our school:
Each of the Houses represents the values we hope to cultivate in our students and students achieve "house points" for achievement at School.
Lewis Hamilton is a British Formula One racing driver from England, currently racing for the Mercedes team and is the youngest ever Formula One World Champion, after winning the title in 2008.
Hamilton was chosen because he has shown skills and qualities that we can all learn from. Lewis started racing go-karts at the age of 6 and always wanted to race in Formula 1. Everything he has done has been with this in mind as so proves that if you want something strong enough, then you can make it happen.
Kelly Holmes is an athlete who won two gold medals in the 2004 Olympics in Athens, for the 800 and 1500 meters and has set several world records in her sport. She was closely involved with the 2012 Olympics and also works with schools all over the UK.
Holmes was chosen because of her outstanding achievements within her sport and the important message that we can all learn from her involvement in sport. Holmes recognises her own strengths and weaknesses and has learnt to play to her strengths in order to be successful. A message that we can all learn from in schools.
Robert "Bobby" Moore, was an English footballer. He captained West Ham United for more than ten years and was captain of the England team that won the 1966 World Cup. He won a total of 108 caps for the England team (1962 - 1973), which at the time of his international retirement was a national record. In 1964 at the age of 23 Moore was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He later died of cancer aged just 51.
Moore was chosen because of the achievements and qualities he showed throughout his playing career. Pele described Moore as the best defender and ‘fairest’ player he ever played against. He was not the quickest or tallest of players but his ability to read the game made up for it. The message we can all learn from Moore is that you must make the most of the skills and talents that you do have and not worry about those that you don’t.
After storming to a sensational victory in the S6 100 meter freestyle in the Beijing 2008 Olympics, Ellie Simmonds became Great Britain’s youngest-ever individual gold medalist in either the Paralympics or Olympic Games at the age of just 13. She also claimed a second gold medal in the 400 meter event. Further success followed in the London 2012 Olympics in which she achieved a further two Gold Medals, a Silver and a Bronze.
Simmonds was chosen because of her outstanding achievements within her sport at such a young age and the important message that we can all learn from her involvement in sport. Ellie has never allowed her disability to prevent her from fulfilling her goals or used it as an excuse for not being able to do something, a lesson we can all learn from.
