Every pupil at Trinity Primary Academy is a member of a house.
The idea is to further develop pupil leadership at the school, create other opportunities for children to take on responsibility and give children a sense of belonging when they compete in team events. Pupils will earn points for their houses through demonstrating Trinity's values of respect, harmony and achievement; leading by example; and through competing for their house, giving events such as sports day more meaning.
The four houses have been named after Londoners who have made significant contributions in theirs fields:
Ade Adepitan was a member of Great Britain wheelchair basketball team that won the bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens and the gold medal at the 2005 Paralympic World Cup in Manchester. He also does a lot of charity work, particularly supporting many charities to help other people with physical disabilities.
Rosalind Franklin was an English chemist who made key contributions to the understanding of the molecular structures of DNA. However, she was not recognised for this in her lifetime and her significance has largely been noted posthumously.
