Head of Ennis-Hill House
Hello, my name is Mr McUrich; I teach maths at Oasis Academy Wintringham and have done so for the last three years. In my spare time, I enjoy keeping fit at the gym, cycling and spending time with my three young children.
Last year I took the role of head of Ennis-Hill House, this was part of an inter-house strategy in order to promote healthy competition and give the students a sense of belonging. Ennis-Hill was chosen to be a house name because of the inspirational athlete Jessica Ennis-Hill, who is an Olympic gold medallist.
The shear grit, determination, commitment and hard work of this athlete is something which all of our staff and students need to aspire to. In Ennis-Hill House we strive to uphold the core values of the Academy; Perseverance, Relationships, Inclusion, Diversity and Everlasting Hope.
My role is to ensure all students have a house that they feel they belong to as well as a hub of support provided through our caring pastoral team. We are sensitive to student needs and offer support whenever we can in order to make our students respected and understood.
Linked to each house is a House Manager; Alli Kent is House Manager for Ennis-Hill. Mrs Kent will provide support in all areas of the Academy for students. She is very experienced and will always strive to resolve any issues that arise.
We firmly believe Ennis-Hill House is the best house to be part of as we work collaboratively with all staff and students in order to make the student's journey the best it can be in the Academy.

Teamwork is very important and together with Mr McUrich, Head of House, we will do our very best to sort out any issues that may arise with regard to your children.
Mutual respect is very important and positive relationships are key to providing our extensive support in school. We aim to support the students and pass onto them other life skills, empowering them and giving them the confidence to move forward positively in whatever they do.
Having regular contact with parents/carers is also very important. Please feel free to ring any time or leave a message on the Ennis-Hill voicemail with any concerns you may have. We will always get back to you at our earliest convenience. We are here to help.
