    House Edison

    Welcome to House Edison House Edison logo

    'It's better to illuminate than mearly to shine'

    The house system came into being via a democratic vote within school. Students voted for the house names and each of our logos and mottos was created by Cheshunt pupils.

    The History of Edison

    Edison House, founded in 2013, prides itself on being an intelligent, motivated and inspiring house. Our motto is based on the belief that everyone has greatness within them, but not everyone can make that greatness illuminate. In Edison House, we seek to be the greatest we can be, and to illuminate for all to see.

    Life in House Edison

    Through the house system, we participate in many challenges throughout the year with enthusiasm and vigour in competitions. Last year, Edison House came second in the Cheshunt University Challenge (a competition in which we were the inaugural champions) and one of our forms won the school wide Science Challenge.

    Our house leader is Mr Michael Wisniowski, who is wholeheartedly committing to charging Edison House and making it one of the brightest parts of our school. In addition, Edison House has five incredible new form tutors and several more supporting us on staff. 

    Inspired by our house’s namesake, we know that “The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are: hard work, stick-to-itiveness and common sense.” We are putting these values into practice in order to make Edison House have their most successful year yet.
