Head of Torrance House

Torrance House

Torrance House gets its name from a local author named William Grove Torrance who published a book called "The History of Alleyne's Grammar School, 1558-1958". My name is Mr Hawthorne and I am Head of Torrance House, caring for the well-being and progress of every student that wears the blue tie with pride. We are a house that are well known to be supportive and have the utmost respect for every Torrance student and person outside of this community.

We are known to be very successful in the House Trophy competition, which we have won in both 2014 and 2015. In this years competition, we have experienced success in the House Drama, Swimming Gala, Credits and Attendance. We also have an excellent track record in fund raising within the school, where in the 2015 Charity Week we managed to raise £650 for the Donna Louise Trust. All Torrance students aim for excellence in every aspect of their school lives and we always hope to empower other students with our positivity.

In the House system, we have 8 tutor groups attached to Torrance with teachers assigned as their form tutors and there is a Student Support Assistant attached to each house. In Torrance House we have the excellent Mrs Collier, who is available throughout the school day to all students that may experience any difficulties or problems
