Earhart House is named after Amelia Earhart (1897-1937). Earhart was an American aviation pioneer and author. She was the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and also set many other records, as well as being key in setting up ‘The 99s’, an organisation for female pilots.
Welcome to Earhart House! I am delighted to be leading such a wonderful cohort of pupils and know that, by working together, we can each achieve excellence, create opportunities for ourselves and others, and ultimately unlock the incredible potential we have.
Pupils and mentors will meet with one another at the start of every day, engaging in a range of activities all together and in smaller groups. Each of these is designed to stretch individuals to go beyond their current capabilities and to encourage the support of one another in this process. Amelia Earhart, as a pioneering aviator, very much embodied a spirit of adventure and empowerment, of pushing the boundaries of what is possible and encouraging others to do likewise. And this is something we would like to see every member of Earhart House do: dare to try the new thing, go far beyond the minimum or the comfortable, and will peers to do the same.
I look forward to a fantastic year, and am excited about what we can be together.
Miss D Jackson
Head of Earhart House
