Mandela

Welcome To Mandela House Page

My name is Tim Perkins and I am the Head of Mandela House. I am also a teacher in the History/Sociology Departments and joined the school in September 2017.

Nelson Mandela famously said of education: 'Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’. In Mandela House we create an environment where all students are encouraged to achieve their personal best. We also recognise that being in education is about more than purely academic attainment and we encourage our students to develop their own voice and become active participants in their community. It is about being proud of who you are and using that pride to achieve great things while inspiring those around you.

We aim for all Mandela students to:

  • Be independent young people who are motivated to learn.
  • Work hard to achieve their potential
  • Demonstrate a positive attitude to learning and excellent behaviour for learning
  • Develop their own views, values and voice.
  • Develop their communication and leadership skills.
  • Make a positive contribution to their local and world community.

Students are supported by an exceptionally committed group of 14 personal tutors and our Student Support Officer Mrs Judge. Our house team take great pride in delivering an excellent standard of mentoring to each student and are always there to support students with any issues they may have. Details of the team is listed below:
