Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

COMPETITIVE SPIRIT: A CLOSE FINISH FOR OUR HOUSE SYSTEM

Following last weeks house cross curricular project all 6 house winners went head-to-head in the character development finals, demonstrating amazing and inspirational presentations of the journey that each house group experienced.

The judges were completely blown away with what had been achieved. Ranging from a communal sensory garden and visits to the Sky Studios, and the Olympic park to a mural and a presentation of ‘Togetherness’ through a BBC news feed.

The five character traits were effectively executed and the messages of what good character entails was epitomised through intellectual and topical presentations.

House Winners

Following a close finish to the year, with a bumper packed house finale, congratulations go to Miss Hills and the Colossians House.

With an impressive sports day win Colossian House closed out this year’s race through consistency and regular commitment to the competition programme.

Well done to all students and staff members involved. Madame Hills will be a massive loss to the academy and we wish her all of the very best at her new school.
