Bishop Andrewes was the Bishop of Chichester from 1605-9 and was the key translator of the King James Version of the Bible in 1611. He was one of the most famous and important Bishops of Chichester and his most famous sermon is quoted by English poet TS Eliot in The Journey of the Magi.
What is Andrewes House like?
We like to think of Andrewes as being a large family. Pupils feel there is a strong sense of unity within the House and that this has led to a great team spirit which has brought the House together and enabled us to achieve a lot of success both in inter-house competitions and in things like charity fund-raising activities.
Andrewes House 2018-2019
The year started before it had even finished with the visit of the Year 6’s/soon to be Year 7’s in July 2018, finding their feet as they found out what it was like to be part of Andrewes House, and getting to know their class mates. Andrewes House has had a busy year. Charity events have raised money for the House charities ‘Sussex Snowdrop Trust’ and ‘Diabetes UK’, these charities having been chosen as there are close links to pupils past and present.
Year 7 got to know each other really well during their residential trip to the Isle of Wight, where challenges were met and experiences shared. All in Andrewes House immersed themselves into the Interhouse competitions that took place throughout the year, including drama, sport and dance. Year 10s ventured into the world of work experience, spending time finding out about possible careers and future pathways.
As Head of House I have been extremely proud of the way the Year 11s have approached their GCSEs – a time that can be stressful but they all pulled together. My thanks go to all the Tutors in Andrewes House – for the support and care they give the pupils during their time at Bishop Luffa School.
