Gordon House’s designated House colour is Red, this can be seen in the school ties, in the PE kit and the Main Hall, where House-colour themed paintings are displayed.
“Despite winning Sports day and the Swimming gala in the last academic year, we were placed 2nd In the overall house championships. This means we have some work to do this academic year! We will come back stronger than ever to regain our title.
Last year we raised an impressive £1139.64 for Macmillan Cancer Support. This was done through Charity bake sales, our Bad tie day and the small change pots in Forms. Thank you to everyone that donated to such a great cause.”
If you have any ideas on how we can improve our house please speak to any of your House Captains
We are holding the annual and extremely popular Macmillan coffee morning on Wednesday 28th September and hope to raise a good donation for our House Charity.
We are back to our winning ways, winning the Swimming gala, sports day, attendance and, of course, the over-all sport trophy which led to us winning the over-all house championship!
The red dragons mean business and will fight to hold on to their title!
Gordon House is named after General Charles Gordon (1833-1885). Gordon became a National Hero for his exploits in China and his ill-fated defence of Khartoum against Sudanese rebels. During a home posting in 1865, he was Commandant in charge of renovating the Lower Thames Forts in Tilbury and Gravesend.
