Cygnus House

Head of House - Mr S West

House Colour: Kingfisher Blue
Named after the Constellation of Cygnus
Cygnus the Swan

"Together Everyone Achieves More"

Cygnus straddles the northern Milky Way and is sometimes called the Northern Cross. One story claims that Cygnus is Orpheus, the hero of Thrace, who sang and played his lyre so beautifully that wild animals and trees would come and hear him play.

Orpheus was transported to the skies as a swan so that he could be near his lyre.

The new Cygnus logo shows a number of people working together as a team, making up the image of the Cygnus Swan, emphasising our motto "Together everyone achieves more".

House Council

In Cygnus, we think it is important to take into account the views of all our students. So we hold regular House Council meetings to discuss any issues affecting our day to day lives. Each form has at least 1 representative who is there to put forward the particular concerns of the students. These are discussed at length and the most pressing make it forward to the full College Council meeting for further consideration. This process has resulted in an updated College uniform, more benches to sit on in the playground and separate upper and lower school toilet facilities along with the hard play area and basketball courts for use before College and at break and lunch.

Interhouse Competitions

Cygnus students are very proud to be a part of Cygnus House and enjoy taking part in the Interhouse competitions and charity events that we organize during the year.

We are always exceptionally well represented and those students who do take part really enjoy representing their House.

The competitions are chosen to appeal to different strengths. These could be musical, sporting or academic.

Cygnus were successful in three of this year's competitions Inter-House competitions, taking 1st place in the netball, 2nd place in the Languages and Art competitions and 3rd place in the overall merits table. However, our final standing in the Inter-house competitions was not where we would have liked and we are keen to rectify this in the 2018-19 academic year!!

As ever, a huge thank you to all participants in the competitions and of course to all of the House captains, prefects and sports prefects for their support throughout the year.
