Principal's Blog - Friday 13th May

I was delighted to attend the Year 11 Presentation Evening this week and to present awards to such a wonderful group of students. Teachers, House Leaders and the Senior Leadership team celebrated the fantastic achievements of so many of our students and their contributions to Sandown Bay Academy over the last 5 years. Monday sees the start of the main GCSE exam season. Please encourage your children to study as much as possible at home and to make the most of resources such as GCSE pod.

Students from across the Key Stage 3 have been on a field trip this week to Yaverland as part of the ArtEcology project with ARC Consulting and Eccleston George.

Congratulations to the U12 and the U15 cricket teams who both beat The Free School this week.

Well done to everyone who took part in Yellow House Walk last Friday. All students were resilient, great company to be with and a real credit to the academy. It was lovely to see students from across all year groups encouraging and supporting each other.

Enjoy your weekend.
