Ely College

Welcome to Scott House.

A number of exciting things have happened this half term which I'm very proud to
share with you all. Huge congratulations to all for their efforts in raising a House
record of £754.26 for the Arthur Rank Hospice on Charities day back in December. We
were fortunate to invite Arthur Rank Hospice representatives in to hand over the
cheque personally.

Academic mentoring has taken place for a number of year groups including Year 7 and
Year 11. As always, we would invite comment from parents. So please email me if you
have a query or question about the process or about your child’s progress in general:

Scott hits Gold - Massive congratulations go to:
Jeremy Lock S-ENO
Estelle Brereton S-RHA
Jan Dietrich S-ENO
who have been awarded a gold PLEDGE award and certificate. We are all extremely
proud of their achievements. It is some achievement to secure a gold PLEDGE and
one that requires a huge amount of commitment on the part of students.

Scott House – Bronze and Silver PLEDGE awards - A high number of students in Scott
House have completed their awards at bronze and silver PLEDGE awards and I’m
hopeful of even more before the end of term.

Scott House Sensory Garden - Well done to S-PGI and all of our Scott House Student
Council. I am really excited to see this project take off to the next stage and being led
by the students is so empowering. We are looking to create a sensory garden as part
of our House project, where students who may be in need of some quiet space during
a busy day can go to to relax. The Form groups will work on a rota to clear the space
and then add some soft furnishings and sensory parts to make it a really exciting

Inter-House Trampolining Success - Well done to all our Year 7 and 8 girls who won
their respective age group in the inter-House trampolining competition. Another
sporting success which underlines our ambition, not just to participate, but also to
compete against the other Houses. Everyone in Scott House is incredibly proud of their achievements.

Please continue to inform your child’s tutor if your son/daughter has done something
amazing that deserves to be mentioned!

Message to Scott House staff - A huge thank you to all tutors for the excellent job you
are doing. A big thank you to Mr Hancock and the History department for taking
students to see Holocaust survivor at King's Ely and to Ms Seymour and Mr Waters
for organizing and running the Othello trip last month. Scott House staff continue to
work above and beyond!

A special mention goes to the Scott House SSA, Ms Garrett, for all her hard work and

Have a lovely half term break Scott House!
