One chance is all you need
Jesse Owens once said, “We all have dreams, but in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort!”
Determination, dedication, self-discipline, effort; four qualities which best describe Owens House.
All the students within Owens House are part of “Team Owens” with the aim of striving to achieve their full potential, both inside and outside of the classroom every day of the week. We take pride in our achievements and recognise the qualities stated above in making those achievements. We encourage all members of Team Owens to “go for it” because, as Jesse once said, “Once chance is all you need!”
Owens take pride in sharing our news in assemblies, bulletins and now via reward points in our new Class Charts system. All of these celebrate successes from the classroom, extra-curricular and outside of school. Whatever the achievement we want to shout about it; we like to remember our students don’t just come to school, they live full and active lives from the moment they get up to the moment they re-charge their batteries; it is what makes them who they are.
Our success in raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, our chosen charity for the year, once again showed me, the rest of the school and the wider community the drive and motivation behind Owens House. Not only do we do something great for ourselves and one another but also the public around us too. Owens is an extended family who always look out for each other, staff and students.
Owens is proud to welcome all newcomers to this house who are assured that they will be encouraged to make their dreams a reality with the support, care and encouragement from staff and students alike.
