Havelock Academy

Our goal is to provide excellent opportunities in an open, positive and purposeful climate for all to achieve excellence, become lifelong learners and responsible, successful, well rounded citizens.

Houses

At the heart of the Academy's pastoral care of its students are the eight Houses.

The Houses are named after eight trawlers of the Ross fleet, many with Royal Navy associations.

The eight names were selected by students on the Academy Student Council.

Each House has its own House Champion and a team of tutors.
