Bruntcliffe Academy’s House Captains play a pivotal role in the overall success of their House. Each House has four Captains who motivate, inspire and encourage students to compete in the House events to the best of their ability.

The Captains help drive forward the House system within the academy by helping to promote competitions and supporting the organisation and running of all House events. In addition, every Captain must ensure their House enters a full team for every event in the calendar, to make sure they receive the tokens and have the best chance of being crowned the winning House at the end of the year!

Some other responsibilities include: collating footage of the House system in action to be used on the webpage and social media accounts; creating ideas for future House competitions and gathering ideas from other students in their House; designing and maintaining an amazing House display and ensuring they support and encourage all students and staff to participate in all events!
