Principal's Blog - Friday 15th April

It was great to see so many Year 11 students attending revision sessions over Easter. The countdown is on with only a few weeks until the exam season starts. Students should be ensuring they attend as many after school revision sessions as possible; every session will help.

We were delighted to welcome 20 Thai students to the Academy this week. They are here for two weeks and have been allocated a buddy from SBA. The student buddies have done a fantastic job at making them feel welcome and I am sure that these friendships will keep going long after they depart.


Thank you to ex-student and Golf Professional Mark Bell who came in to do some taster golf sessions with our students this week.



The programme of Summer Term clubs is now on our website, please encourage your children to make the most of the many clubs on offer (click here to view).

The Performing Arts department are holding a ‘Variety Night’ on Wednesday next week; this is a showcase of all the work across all Key Stages and includes the winning Isle of Wight Music, Dance and Drama Festival pieces. Please come along and support our incredibly talented students.


A reminder to please take 10 minutes to complete our parent survey (click here).  There will be a prize for the tutor group with the most responses.  

Enjoy your weekend.
