Barnes Wallis Academy

At Barnes Wallis Academy we aim to provide each and every one of our students with the guidance and support they need to excel.


Every student at Barnes Wallis Academy is a member of a house.

Barnes Wallis Academy operates a house-based system. Every child is assigned to a house on joining the academy.

Every house is headed up by a House Leader, and provides a strong pastoral network for each student.

The houses are Dakota (purple), Spitfire (Red), Lancaster (Green) and Hurricane (Yellow).

We hope that this system will give students a sense of pride for their assigned houses through carefully planned house-bonding activities and inter-house competitions.
