Head of House: Ms Arrowsmith

Pastoral Welfare Officer: Ms Matthews

Welcome to Torrance House! The 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". W G Torrance was a pupil, then a teacher and then a governor at the school. Our house colour for Torrance is blue and you will be able to spot a Torrance student by seeing them wearing their blue tie with pride!

We are known to be very successful in the House competitions and although we were unable to carry out House competitions as normal over the past academic year we have a history success! In the previous year, we came first in Year 9 boys Cross Country, Handball and House Music to name just a few. I am confident that when our House competitions return, with our continued effort and dedication we can have many successes and even work our way to the top and win back the House Trophy! We want all Torrance students aim for excellence in every aspect of their school lives and in the community and we always hope to empower other students with our positivity. One way our students can become more involved in their local community is through the National Citizen Service scheme. We liaise with The Burton Albion Community Trust, who run this scheme in our area and it is fantastic to see Torrance students take up this opportunity.

Students in Torrance House are supported by a team of 6 tutors, along with Ms Matthews, our Student Support Assistant and the Head of House. We are also lucky to have some outstanding House Captains in Torrance House, who represent the House and the School brilliantly during transition events, open evenings, parent’s evenings and so much more.

If you are reading this as a parent or carer of a student in Torrance House and you would like to know more about Torrance or the Pastoral System, please get in touch with myself or Ms Matthews
