The Ebbsfleet Academy

House System

On entry into the academy, each student will be allocated to one of four Houses. Our House system provides both a vehicle through which children from different year groups can work collaboratively and a focus for friendly academic and non-academic competition.

For more information about each house, please click on the logo below:

Mr Sutton read Ancient and Modern History at the Queen’s College, University of Oxford, graduating with a 2:1 BA (Hons) degree, entering teaching through the Teach First programme, completing his PGCE at Canterbury Christ Church University. Since joining the Ebbsfleet Academy last year, he has taught History, Geography and Global Learning, and now has the privilege of being appointed as head of Bell House.

Mr Sutton knows that all Bell House students are capable of more than they expect, and wants to push them to reach their full potential. He believes that getting the best education possible is vital for enabling students to make the most of their future careers and lives and will work relentlessly in supporting them to achieve their very best.

‘Bell House students have the potential to fulfil the very highest of expectations. Their ability to challenge themselves and to push themselves to achieve is an admirable quality, and they need to continue to be resilient throughout their school career and beyond. Every day, I see things from Bell House students which make me proud, and I know that they will continue to impress me through their resilience, integrity, independence, confidence and respect.’


Ms Dickman has worked at The Ebbslfeet Academy since it opened in 2013. She achieved a BSc (Hons) degree in Nutrition and Food Science from the University of Nottingham. Since joining The Ebbsfleet Academy she has taught a mixture of Science, Hospitality and Food Technology lessons, and has now become the Head of House for Drake House.

Ms Dickman aims to develop a House of resilient and confident individuals, who show ambition and determination in every aspect of their school lives.

“I have been proud to be a Drake House tutor for the past four years, and could not be happier to lead them forward as Head of House this academic year. I hope that the students and tutors of Drake House will show the same pride and enthusiasm for their House as I do. I want to develop the students within my House to display all of the academy values, with particular emphasis on integrity and resilience, to best prepare them for their futures beyond The Ebbsfleet Academy”.

Ms Horn has wanted to be a teacher since her very first day at primary school. She spend many hours helping younger children learn to read and fell in love with teaching. When she went to secondary school, she had her first language lessons and decided that this was the route she wanted to take.

She went on to study French, Spanish and German at sixth form, and then to The University of Essex to Study a BA in Modern Languages and Linguistics. During her degree course, she spent a year in Spain and this language became her passion, although she is constantly striving to add new languages to her repertoire, and has recently started studying BSL.

Ms Horn believes that every single child has the potential and ability to succeed and has the very highest expectations of all her students. She believes that every student in Scott House has a valuable contribution to make and that working together is the way forward.

“Scott House have the potential to be amazing and every student has the ability to excel. Together we can create success for everyone.”

Mr Oyetoki has a passion to raise a generation of transformed students who eventually develop to become agents of transformation themselves. This he sees as the bedrock for creating a society and eventually a nation that is of the best values in life. Therefore his vision, goal and expectation for all students in Sharman house are holistic; spiritual, mental, physical and social development. 

“Having been a tutor in Sharman House with a track record of excellent performance with my tutor group, it has now become a greater privilege to lead the House. I therefore seek to replicate what has been a great success as a tutor now in the greater capacity as the head of house. Through the academy’s values of integrityresilienceindependenceconfidence and respect, and the dedicated work of the SLT, pastoral, and tutors, students in Sharman house would learn to be diligent in all they do. Individuals who are diligent, don’t just stand before mere men, they are sought after due to the skills and quality of work they deliver. This is our focus as a house”
