  • Year 11 Upgrade Mission – Extended Academy Day

    Published 06/01/20

    Dear parent/carer

    I am pleased to announce that the Trust is set to extend the Academy day for all Year 11 learners. This will be known as our Upgrade Mission. The Upgrade Mission is an initiative that has been designed to support all of our Year 11 learners and prepare them for their forthcoming GCSE exams.

    From the week commencing 6th January 2020, the Academy day will be extended for year 11 learners by one period on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 15:00 – 16:00 and will place focus on all core subjects, science and humanities.

    In order to ensure that all our Year 11 students achieve the best possible results in their exams, it is expected that all Year 11 students attend the Upgrade Mission sessions. An Upgrade Mission assembly will take place this week to ensure all learners are notified of the importance of these sessions.

    This Year 11 programme demonstrates the Trust’s commitment to providing the best support possible for Year 11 learners so that they can thrive in their summer examinations and move on to positive post-16 destinations.

     

    Should you have any queries or concerns related to the Upgrade Mission, please contact the following member of staff:

  • Message From The Principal

    Published 03/12/19

    Mr Landers, Principal:  Last week we had the pleasure this week of welcoming our ex pupils back to the academy for our annual celebration of success evening. It was fantastic to hear all the positive comments about the colleges they are now going to and the courses they are studying. Feedback from Mrs Turton shows that all of last year’s learners have progressed into college or employment opportunities with training which is an amazing achievement. It was also pleasing to be able to tell our ex students that they had contributed to us becoming the second most improved school in Dudley in terms of their English and mathematics results. The challenge for our current year groups is to do even better.

    As we approach Christmas, there is a buzz around the academy with all the exciting activities we have planned. This includes our Year 7 Pantomime trip to the Wolverhampton Grand, our Year 7 and 8 Reward Disco and Christmas Jumper Day. The term will finish with our Celebration Assembly on the 20th December.

    This term we have been also having a real push on our use of social media particularly Facebook and Twitter.  This is a great way to stay up to date with academy events, good news stories and exceptional work by our students.  I urge you to download the relevant apps and like/follow us.

    Once again thank you for your support this term.

  • Message from our Principal

    Published 04/11/19

    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.

  • Uniform & VDE Reminder

    Published 14/10/19

    In order to continue to drive up standards in the Academy, we are placing a real focus on effort and uniform. These details have been shared with all learners by their form tutor which includes information about coats, jewellery, equipment and uniform. All information about this can be found in your child's planner or by clicking here.

    May I take this opportunity to remind you that skirts worn should reach at least to the knee at all times, including when walking (it is not acceptable for the skirt to only be the right length if the learner has to pull it down). Also nose studs of any kind, including clear plastic ones, are not acceptable and as the weather gets colder hooded tops are not a replacement for a coat or blazer.

    Please do not hesitate to contact your child's pastoral learning manager if you require any further information on 01384 253722

    Year 7 - Miss Rawlings
    Year 8 - Mrs Dennis
    Year 9 - Miss Macefield
    Year 10 - Mr Willis
    Year 11 - Mr Beckett
