Here in Darwin, we strive to work hard and achieve our very best in all we do. We are supportive, friendly and caring – all qualities that are important to us.  We pride ourselves on ability to work together as a team – cheering on those who are doing well, but also supporting those who might need a hand. Win or lose, we are a team and we stick together.

A message from our House Captains: 

Being the house captains for Darwin brings us great pleasure when walking around the school. As a house, we strive to be successful in every aspect of day-to-day school life whether that be interhouse competitions or completing any set work in and out of lesson. The students of Darwin are always aiming to be the best when it comes to manners and how hard they work within the day. We pride ourselves to be the friendliest and most welcoming house.

We are consistently near the top if not the top of E-praise and attendance showing we strive to be the most focused and successful within the school.

We look forward to welcoming you and helping you to be the best you can whilst within our house Darwin!
