The ethos of Dragon House is one of positive encouragement for all students to achieve their personal excellence. Each individual matters and as a collective we work towards bringing out the potential in all.

‘It is not our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices.’
JK Rowling, The Chamber of Secrets
This sums up what is expected of every Dragon student. The challenge to try something we have never tried before, to get involved, to see all events as new opportunities to shine. Above all else the expectation to make the right choice, for ourselves, for Dragon House and for the wider school community. Dragons are known for their respect and compassion towards others. If a student is in need, whichever House they belong to, Dragons know to help and support.
Dragons are of course very competitive students. We want to win! We take great pride in the successes we achieve both as individuals and as part of a group or team, whether in sport, dance and drama, art and technology or other academic challenges. That fighting spirit enabled Dragon House to close a considerable gap between us and the front runner and to then push ahead to become House Champions in both 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.
As this blue Lego Dragon demonstrates, by sticking together, each piece, however small, however much in the background, has an integral role which when put together creates a strong impressive structure. Likewise, when we as Dragons all stick together, each individual contributing their strengths, doing their best, great things can be accomplished.
I could not be prouder of my Dragons and their accomplishments.

Head of Dragon House
