Our House System

The development of a strong culture is a vital part of our schools. We believe that pupils need to be provided with opportunities to develop as young people, to gain a sense of community, and to experience and share success with others. One way in which we provide such opportunities is through our House System.

Here at East Point Academy, we are extremely proud of the House System we have created and the attached values. It embodies all that we stand for and is the vehicle in which our culture is lived through each day. It encourages pupil development through access to a wide range of experiences and motivates students to work together to share ideas, allowing them to learn from each other. 

Each of our Houses has a House Leader and every pupil and staff member is expected to be part of a House. 

Each school within the Inspiration Trust has a House System and as part of the wider trust, we are delighted to be able to offer our students the opportunity to participate in numerous exciting inter-trust events and competitions, all of which promote and inspire teamwork, while creating a unique sense of belonging to something bigger than one's self.

The House System at East Point Academy is named after the Lowestoft Scores, which form a unique part of our town’s history. The scores are a series of narrow lanes and steep pathways running from the High Street to the site of the town's former beach village. They formed a link between the town, which was built on a cliff, and the village, which had developed as a result of the fishing industry. The Scores were once full of the sights, sounds (and smells!) of the port's booming fishing industry and form a major part of Lowestoft's heritage.
