Message from our Principal
Mr Landers, Principal: We start this half term on really positive news that when we compare our results in English and mathematics for 2019 with other Dudley schools we are the second most improved school in the authority with results higher than many of the other schools locally. This is validation that what we are doing here at the academy is beginning to show real impact although there is still much to do.
Myself and my team have been out and about around the academy celebrating success through our new ‘Applause on the Doors’ initiative. It’s been a pleasure to acknowledge the work of our pupils including fantastic grades in GCSE practice assessments, year 7 solar system models and Year 8 volcano modelling. It’s also really pleasing to see so many students now beginning to use our after school homework club and Year 11 after school sessions.
We have also been working hard this term to improve our communication with parents through our use of social media. We urge you to follow/like us on both Twitter and Facebook to receive up to date news and to help us celebrate success and the fantastic things that are going on here at the academy. So far this year we have been able to tweet/post about recent careers events, charity work, Year 11 successes, Open evening, L4L homework tasks, sporting events and work within the arts just to name a few.
