Message From the Principal 28.03.24

Dear Parent / Carer 

I am writing to you at the end of another busy term where so much great work has taken place in and around the academy.  

As usual, the assemblies in the final week have been rewards assemblies and it has been great to see so many students getting recognition for their efforts both in lessons and for extra-curricular efforts. I took great pride in signing a huge pile of Accelerated Reader certificates; to see so many students reaching the 1 million, 2 million and 3 million word mark for the academic year is fantastic. Our highest achiever, so far this year, is Emily in Year 7 who has read a staggering 6 million words! There was also a live attendance draw with over 500 students in the running for one of exciting prizes up for grabs.

The Social Action Squad were working on improving the school environment by planting a range of fruit trees in the grounds as well as a large number of trees at the end of the field to create a new wildlife patch. I am so proud of the work these students are undertaking and look forward to seeing what else they can achieve in the new term.

The highlight of the week for me though was the Key Stage 3 performance of High School Musical. The extremely talented cast performed the musical on both Tuesday and Wednesday night with Wednesday night being a complete sell out. Seeing the energy and passion that all the cast put into the performance was genuinely heart-warming. A huge thank you to the performing arts teams and all the students that worked so hard to pull the musical together.

Two key dates for the new term are Thursday 18th April which is Year 12 progress evening and is taking place at Huxlow Academy, and Year 8 parents' evening which is on Thursday 25th April.

Whatever you have planned for the Easter holidays, I hope you have a restful break and I look forward to seeing all of our wonderful students return for the summer term; hopefully it will bring some better weather!

Yours sincerely,

Mr B Baines
