Capella House

Capella at Cleethorpes Academy

Capella is the brightest star in the constellation Auriga, the sixth brightest star in the night sky and the third brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere.

Capella House is split into nine different house groups which are set up vertically giving an even spread of representatives from each year group within each form. This vertical system allows for a real family feel to the House. This sense of family and community is paramount to the successes that Capella House has experienced so far.

2017-2018 was another successful year for Capella. Although we were beaten to the overall House Competition Cup, we came a very close 2nd (there was only 1 point difference!) and the competition ran all the way to the final minute. Rigel were worthy winners and the pressure will now be on Capella to reclaim the trophy this year with a wider range of competitions meaning that more students than ever before will be able to compete and take part. Participation and team work will be key this year if we are to be successful.

Sports day was a fantastic event and proved to be an outstanding victory for Capella as we reclaimed the trophy after being pipped to the post the previous year. Capella students were outstanding in their attitude and their commitment and a number of records were broken on the day. We were outstanding in the relay races and special thanks must go to the Sports captains and Vice captains who were instrumental in our victory.

We strive for excellence in all areas in Capella House and we take pride in our successes and we learn from our near misses. Most important of all, we respect each other and we support each other. Every student in Capella has an important role to play.
