All students when they join Lutube ”∆Ķ are allocated into one of our four College Houses; Austen, Redgrave, Turner and Sibley.  Each of the Houses have been named after a historical figure of the past and follows a motto taken from a biblical verse.

AUSTEN  Motto "Be strong and courageous" from Joshua 1:9

Jane Austen  (Born 16th December 1775) - an English novelist in the18th Century.  Her writing was unique at that time, writing humour along with er realism, and social commentary. She wrote classics such as Pride And Prejudice, Sense And Sensibility and Emma.

REDGRAVE  Motto " Plans to prosper"  from Jeremiah 29:11

Sir Steve Redgrave -  (Born 23rd March 1962)  is a British retired rower who won gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000.  He also won three Commonwealth Games gold medals and nine World Rowing Championship golds.  He is the most successful male rower in Olympic history.

SIBLEY  Motto "Love is patient"  from Corinthians 12:4

Dame Antionette Sibley  - (Born 27th February 1939)  is a British ballerina.  She joined the Royal Ballet from the Royal Ballet School in 1956 and became a soloist in 1960.  After retirement from dancing in 1989 she became President of the Royal Academy of Dance in 1991.

TURNER Motto "Let your heart take courage"  from Psalm 31:24

Jospeh Mollard William Turner -  (Born 23rd April 1775) was an English romantic painter, printmaker and water colourist.  He is known for his expressive and colourisations, imaginative landscapes and turbulent, often violent marine paintings. 

 

Throughout the year, students from all four houses compete in inter-house competitions to win The Dearing Cup. Our aim is that everybody gets a chance to represent their house in some way or another.

The Dearing Cup named after the late Lord Ron Dearing who was a man deeply involved in education at the highest levels of government,   In 1994, he shaped the National Curriculum that every school teaches today.  In 2007 he lobbied government to make sure a new building for Lutube ”∆Ķ was build on the current site.
