House System Vision
Our vision of the House System is to enable every member of our community to realise their full potential, and in particular, their full academic potential. At Cedar Mount Academy every member strives for the highest possible standards of academic achievement. This is reflected through our academy values of HARDWORK, ASPIRATION AND RESPECT.
The house system allows every member to feel a sense of belonging and pride at being able represent their house colours in a number of sporting and academic challenges. The House system creates competition, promotes good work and behaviour, encourages teamwork, provides opportunities to take on leadership responsibilities and brings everyone in the academy together.
By being a member of the house family, students and staff are encouraged to show team spirit as all of the houses thrive on the ethos of “it’s the taking part that counts”.
