Welcome to Hawk House

 If you’ve clicked on this link for Hawk House we would like to officially welcome you to the most awesome house at Goffs School. In Hawk House we are open to new innovative ideas and pride ourselves on making sure that you feel a part of our community. It’s important for us to make sure that all students from Year 7 through to the Sixth form are involved in our wide range of house events.

At the end of last year Hawk House’s claim to fame was our win in the FreeRice competition putting us in second place. However, with a new school year came a new leader. Since September, Hawk House has led the way winning various competitions, raising huge funds for charity and holding on to our first place title.

House Charity- Keech Hospice

This year the students of Hawk House have voted and nominated Keech Hospice as our chosen house charity for 2015-2016. This amazing hospice provides care for terminally ill adults and children as well as their families with fantastic care from the diagnosis and throughout the extremely hard period. They provide people with a dignified death and continue to support the family after the patient’s passing.
