Principal's Blog - Friday 17th June

I was delighted to attend Year 7 and Year 8 assemblies this week to present certificates to students for achieving 100% attendance in the last week before half term, and for students with an outstanding attitude to learning. It was indicative of the high standards the Year 7 and 8 students set for themselves that almost the whole year group were awarded a certificate. Well done, I hope to see even more students achieving this at the end of the summer term. A special mention for Tristan Allen who presented an excellent summary of the recent visit to Portsmouth Guildhall as part of the 'Teen Tech' initiative. 


We welcomed Year 5 and 6 students into the Academy this week for a range of workshops including Art, Sports and Languages. We have some very promising and talented stars of the future in our community, and we look forward to welcoming them back again soon.



A group of Key stage 3 students spent the afternoon on Wednesday checking the progress of their experimental sea tiles on Sandown beach. They also talked to Ian Boyd from Arc consulting and Dr David Fryer, about how to gauge impact of storms on colonisation in their Artecology tile array.


Thank you very much to all parents who completed our survey recently. We have just received back the results and will be sharing them with you in due course.

 

Enjoy your weekend.
