Find out who is behind the new House names

Since September, all of our students have been wearing a metal coloured badge on their left lapel to identify which House they belong to. The house system adds a positive element of collaboration, healthy competition and inclusivity.

To find the best names for each house we used the theme of Iconic Lincolnshire role models and have fully involved our students in the process.

We are pleased to announce that the following House names for Giles Academy will be:
