Good afternoon

The external examinations are in full swing and pupils are engaging very well with the strict exam rules and attending revision sessions to help them achieve the best grades. To cope with exam pressure we have staff available to help them through, in the first instance pupils should speak to their form tutor or Head of Year. Counselling in schools is an important and valued aspect for the school community. We also have break out points so that our pupils can take 5 minutes to re-boot and re-think. This occurs in the hub area, where we have specialised staff to support and guide our pupils.


This week Aspens visited the Academy and spoke to some of our student council to find out what they thought of the canteen to identify what was going well and what needed to improve. The pupils were articulate and certainly impressed Aspens. The pupils ideas will be carried forward and some changes will be made in the forthcoming weeks. It is exciting to think that our pupils will be helping to steer the menu ideas for all.

We have also had a visit from the project manager who is working on behalf of Crown Estates. He delivered an assembly to Year 10 and will be asking our pupils to complete a questionnaire in the near future to help plan what phase 2 of Rushden Lakes should look like. Pupils are to decide what local amenities should be on the doorstep, this is a very special project, the biggest outside of London with a substantial amount of money being spent in the local area. They are looking to have a natural, sustainable and environmentally friendly area; in fact 55 acres of beauty!

Have a good weekend and get planning together!

Mrs J Burton
