The Viking house is named after warriors. More precisely ‘Viking’ is the name by which the Scandinavian sea-borne raiders of the early medieval period are now commonly known.
Many people still think of the Vikings as harsh, brutal people who added to their income from farming poor land in Scandinavia by raiding the towns, villages and monasteries of Britain and Europe, looting gold and silver, and carrying away people to use or sell as slaves. No doubt there is some truth in this picture, but Arab merchants in Russia who dealt with the Vikings took a different view, seeing them primarily as peaceful traders: "They have no estates, villages or fields; their only business is trade in sable, squirrel and other furs.“
Staff House Coordinator - Mr B. Brogan
Viking House is dedicated to every student making every possible effort in achieving their potential. The house motto has been “Vikings rule” but it is getting a bit old, therefore we are open to suggestions.
Over the last few years this House has seen a lot of dedicated and experienced Tutors as well as students participating in competitions willing to collect points and achievements in order to be the best.
So what makes the Viking House special?
The Vikings have often beentop of the board which shows students are proud to be part of the Viking House and it does have a competitive nature. We encourage all students to take pride in the House and all have helped to make the House a winning one. We can do it again, compete again and again until victory becomes inevitable.
