Everything we do as Drake is motivated by the symbol of the Dragon. We are fiercely competitive and strike fear into the hearts of our opponents. We are committed to the cause and determined to succeed in all that we do. We are loyal to our fellow dragons and supportive of to all members of the Drake team. Our mascot, Francis the Dragon (named after Sir Francis Drake, where we get our house name from) looks on and roars words of encouragement. He is an inspirational voice in success and a shoulder to cry on in defeat.
While Drake are desperately aiming for that elusive Sports Day success, we showed great talent in the Wandering Trophy of July 2017 as we triumphed in the Staff & 6th Form 4x100m relay. Mr. Young led by example, running the 3rd leg before handing off to Adam Parrett who zoomed to the finish line leaving everyone else in his wake. We hope to emulate further success in the various house competitions this academic year!
