STEWART HOUSE (PURPLE)
"STRIVING TOWARDS EXCELLENCE WITH ACHIEVEMENTS, REWARDS AND TOGETHERNESS"
Stewart house is a very special House – it is named after Mike Stewart, a young Science teacher at Neston who sadly died suddenly and the House is named after him as a sign of respect. The House motto is a collaboration of ideas from a number of students from Years 7 to 11.
Mrs Latham is Head of Stewart House.
Mrs Latham, has been a member of staff since 2002. She was first a tutor in Talbot House under the leadership of Mrs Hignet. In 2007, she became the Head of Personal Development in 2008 where ran whole school events with PSHE themes. She was appointed as Head of Stewart House in 2015.
Miss McCabe is Pastoral Mentor for Stewart House.
Miss McCabe, the House Pastoral Learning Mentor, has been a member of the Neston High community since 1999 where she joined us as a Learning Support Assistant. After five years of experience in the classroom, she was seconded to run the medical room for two years. She was then appointed as one of the school’s Pastoral Officers. This role allowed her to support all the students across the five Houses, giving her a very unique view of the school and its pastoral system. The students of Stewart House are in a very privileged position to have such experienced House Leaders and are now reaping the benefits of both Mrs Latham’s and Miss McCabe’s knowledge and experience, which helps students to maximise their potential.
Our excellent tutor team are involved in monitoring both the welfare and academic progress of the students in their form.
The Learning Support Team work with the students providing support and guidance. They mentor individuals, helping them overcome any social and academic issues they might have. They also play a vital role in helping new students to settle into school life.
Stewart House's chosen charity is "Macmillan Cancer Support", a vital organisation of dedicated nurses providing practical, medical and financial support for cancer patients and their families. The House raises funds through contributions made as part of non-uniform days coffee mornings and other charity events.
