Welcome to Amber House
Head of House: Mr. J Lambert
Within Amber House we will be positive and brave at all times
All students will look to consistently perform to a high level both in and out of lessons. Within lessons, students will set high standards and will look to become leaders and high performers at all times. Outside of lessons, within all extra-curricular activities, students will be participators and will look to engage into all activities across the house system, to a high level.
Within Amber House we are respectful of others at all times. We are competitive and will look to become winners across all different fields of opportunity. Both staff and students will form a team; a team of which will look forwards, positively, at all times.
Within Amber House we will pay extreme close attention to our STRIPE initiative of we have here at Sir Herbert Leon Academy. During this first half term we will be concentrating on ‘S’ of which stands for ‘Self-Management’. Students will look to be organised at all times both through their timings and the equipment they have on them. Within Amber House, student learning to manage their own time and general well-being is of ultimate importance.

Within Amber House Attendance is a real focus of ours. In order to achieve within school, we must be in school and in all lessons. So far, our attendance has been good and we continue to lead the way within the academy. Attendance is monitored extremely closely; if a student were to have a day off school, a return to school interview with their tutor to discuss why they were not present is had. This is then forwarded to both Head of House who will track closely.
