14 Feb Year Group Update – Year 8 – February 2020
There was a great turnout for Learning Coach Consultation Day, it was fantastic to see so many of you there engaging with the Academy.
Please start to discuss the GCSE options with your child as these will need to be decided by 5th March at our Parents’ Consultation Evening. I will be sending out more information in the coming weeks to help you with these decisions.
This half term Year 8 students have been lucky enough to meet a real author. Onjali Q. Rauf visited the Academy and spoke to them about the joy of literature and even writing their own novels. They have also had the opportunity to go on Science trips, most recently to the South Downs in Sussex on a Biology Field Trip.
Year 8’s have played a central part in the Student Voice process this half term, presenting student ideas to the Committee in order to best serve the Academy.
During the week of 3 February the Academy marked Children’s Mental Health Week in association with our counselling service, Place2Be. Various initiatives took place around the Academy which all Students were encouraged to take part in.
