Elizabeth Carter was an inspirational woman who could make a ‘pudding as well as translate Epictetus from the Greek and work a handkerchief as well as compose a poem’.  She was an English poet, classicist, writer, translator, linguist, and polymath.  Following in Elizabeth Carter’s footsteps the students of Carter house will be supported through the following Goodwin gateways, resilience and persistence to ensure that Carter House students are the BEST they can be.

Head of House – Miss Brown

As a science teacher, I like to look ahead and inspire students in their out-of-the-box thinking, just like Elizabeth Carter, who was always looking to the future and inspiring women to push forward and not be afraid to rise to new challenges.

Goodwin Gateways

Persistence is a hard habit to develop but at Goodwin Academy our teaching and support mechanisms allow students to grow in confidence, so when faced with a challenge or a fear that they perceive themselves unable to achieve, young people will learn to pick themselves up and carry on the path to success.

Thinking and communicating with clarity and precision. Students need to be able to communicate with each other and within our community outside of Goodwin Academy.  Students need to learn the habits of communicating with adults, businesses and members of the public to be able to have a clear understanding of what they want to achieve for their school and Parkinsons UK.

The power of communication enables students to have a voice within society and it is essential that this is done with clarity and precision in order to have the greatest impact for all.

Our house will support the charity Parkinson’s UK.  This charity is very close to my heart as my Dad had Parkinson’s and battled it for 10 years. This disease has also affected many other legends such as Mohamad Ali and Billy Connolly.  Parkinson is a growing disease that needs a lot more understanding and support as it will start to affect many people in this country.  Together as Carter House, we can raise awareness and money to support this research into this saddening disease.
