Seward House have enjoyed another hugely successful House Week raising awareness and much needed funds for The Midlands Air Ambulance.

The 2021/22 Seward Student Leadership Team played a key role in the vision and organisation of this year’s event, opting for an early Halloween theme.

Students in all Years then rose to the challenge presented to them and put on a real event.

Each day students, with much help from home, created truly scary bakes to sell to our school community. This saw “spideriffic” rocky roads,” pumpkin cupcakes and skull shaped muffins amongst others. These proved incredibly popular and each day was a sell-out.

Our sponsored Zombie walk was great fun. This saw 250+ Seward students up and active early on Wednesday and Thursday morning walking their sponsored mile to surpass our aim of 230 combined miles. Collectively Seward House covered the distance between the most northern and southern parts of The Midlands Air Ambulance’s operational area and back again!

Our House Week closed with our own version of the popular TV show ‘The Masked Singer’ on The Friary stage. ‘The Masked Singing Teacher’ was a riotous affair in front of a packed audience. Pigeon aka Miss Boden, was victorious this year ahead of Mr Havill (aka Werewolf) , Miss Stone (aka Ghoul), Mr Straw (aka Zombie) and Mrs Plested (aka Frankenstein’s Monster).

Seward House are not quite finished and a few of our events will roll into next week. They still have a jar of sweets to be guessed correctly before Halloween and the small matter of which teacher to mummify on the last day of the half-term.

Lucy Vanes, Seward House Captain from Year 11, said: “I am overjoyed at the way in which the whole of Seward House came together during our House Week. The week was a real success and students, parents and teachers have all been fantastic. We really cannot thank you enough for you kind donations. They will make a real difference to The Midlands Air Ambulance charity.”
