Academy weekly news

For the week ending: 6 December, 2019

It was good to see all the decorations going up around the school and our student’s reactions to it. It is always an exciting time of the year for many of our students and one where we have to balance celebration with hard work and maintaining standards. Students must continue to follow the uniform policy and walk calmly to and from lessons – we expect it at other times of the year and December in many ways is no different. I expect everyone to work hard right up to the end of term then we enjoy the holiday.

Yesterday was the OAT East Principals’ meeting at Flegg High School. We all work incredibly closely with each other so it’s the perfect forum for sharing ideas. It is a meeting I particularly enjoy as my role last year involved visiting all the schools so I have a good insight into each academy. There is a great deal of strength out there that we are drawing on to continue our journey of improvement.

This weekend at home will be a busy one, a mixture of practical arrangements and personal emotion. It’s a time when family all pull together. I hope you have a fruitful weekend.
