The Rule of Law  

Sir Robert Peel was a British Conservative statesman who served twice as Prime Minister and twice as Home Secretary. 

He addressed the lack of organisation in the law enforcement and is regarded as the father of modern British policing as he founded the Metropolitan Police Service.  

He reformed and liberalised the criminal law in addition to being one of the founders of the modern Conservative Party. Laws or rules that bind all people living in a community they protect our general safety, and ensure our rights our citizens against abuses by others. We have rules in our Academy to help provide for our safety and ensure the efficient and effective running of our community. 

A Peel House Welcome

Total House Points


Head of Peel house is Mr Housley, teacher of Physical Education.

Born and raised in Yorkshire (a big time Leeds United fan!), He graduated from school with 12 GCSE’s, grade A*-C, and at sixth from with an A-Level in Physical Education and an OCR National Award in Sport. This is where he discovered his passion for physical education. As a youngster, he participated at high levels in football, cricket, golf, swimming and….darts and began coaching at his local football and swimming clubs, which progressed into a desire for a career of teaching in school.

After studying for his degree in Sport Studies and Physical Education at York, Mr Housley began his teaching career at a school in Doncaster before moving on to an academy in Scunthorpe. After moving to the area in 2016, Mr Housley became a member of staff at Haven High Academy as a teacher in the Sports faculty before becoming the inaugural head of Peel house in 2019.

As Head of Peel House, Mr Housley offers leadership which is rooted in kindness, respect and tolerance. Equality is not about treating everyone the same, it’s about treating people differently according to their needs and he employs this approach to seek to develop all students of Peel House.

Pilgrim Hospital


Peel house’s charity is Pilgrim Hospital. A major focal point in Boston and, in recent times, at the forefront of the town when working against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Everyone has a responsibility for their own health, but Pilgrim Hospital is also responsible for helping people to improve their health and wellbeing. Their role in preventing poor health and promoting healthy living is essential to reduce health inequalities and sustain the NHS for future generations.

At some point, we have all interacted with the hospital whether as a patient or as a visitor. You may even know somebody who works on one of the 20 plus wards it holds. Possibly a family member. Therefore, you will have experienced first hand, it’s importance and significance to the many people of Boston and the local areas.

Peel house has already supported the hospital by raising money during charity events. This money was used in supporting nurses on the COVID-19 wards, through the purchasing of lip balms and moisturising cream which are applied during and after shifts when wearing protective face masks.
