Welcome to Webb House. My name is Miss Owen and I am lucky enough to be the head of this fantastic house. Webb is a fun and exciting house where all students are valued for their contribution, whether they be large or small.
Mary Webb, novelist and poet, is Shropshire’s most famous daughter. She passionately loved the Shropshire countryside, which she knew intimately, drawing from it her settings, her characters and the rich descriptive detail of her novels and poems. Her creativity was inspiring.
The message we can all learn from Webb is that you should make the most of your opportunities available to you, be as creative as you can be and use your surroundings to inspire your success.
There is a strong emphasis on the need to include pupils (a sense of belonging) immediately on joining Webb House and build on the sense of community with each other as well as the need for positive role models. In our house we work to achieve through team work, encouragement and enjoyment.
It is very important that students within the house are happy and have all they need to reach their true full potential. This will be achieved through a strong emphasis on mutual respect for each other and a calm and caring environment.
There are many opportunities for student leadership within the House system. Webb House believes it is important to provide more opportunities for our students to take responsibility and develop leadership skills. There is a blend of different activities to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to represent their house at some point.
