Willow is one of four houses at The Duston School that provide a community for every student, from Reception through to the Sixth Form. Throughout the academic year, these four houses compete for the coveted house trophy by earning house points for a wide variety of achievements.
Our motto is, “Winners never quit; quitters never win”. For us, winning is about succeeding in something that seemed out of reach at first and that is exactly what the students in Willow managed to do last year.
How Success is Measured
House points can be awarded for respect, resilience and aspiration. In the Primary School, students who stand out for their exemplary behaviour or work ethic are also rewarded with a ‘golden token’. Aside from being an incredible honour, this token is worth 50 house points.
How do we Celebrate the Winners?
Winners have the privilege of being invited to special events, such as the circus skills workshop held last year in the Primary School and the celebration evening held in the Secondary School. These are just two of the ways that The Duston School celebrates those who are hard-working, helpful and kind to others.
We look forward to welcoming new students to Willow House!
