Civic Celebration of student achievement 21st Oct 2016 It was with great pleasure to report that two of our students attended a presentation last night for Student Achievement. Mrs Tracey Boswell nominated two students from her year group of Year 10 for their different achievements and we are pleased to say that they were both awarded recognition for their efforts. Henry Fenton was praised for his role as Executive Student Council Representative, Police Cadet and for being an excellent role model in the Academy with Lucy Rowland being applauded for being a Sports Leader, an ambassador for the Academy CARES gold award and an excellent role model for academic achievement. Congratulations to you both.
Emily Guest(s) at London Fashion Week 19th Sept 2016
Emily Guest from Year 13 was selected for the Fashion Futures Final, after undertaking ten weeks of practical workshops with Fashion Awareness Direct (FAD) before presenting her finished toiles and portfolios to a panel of industry experts. Emily and the selected finalists, chosen from over 100 entrants, then spent five days with FAD mentors at The University of East London creating their garments for the London catwalk. It was the detail of the french knots decorating Emily’s garment that impressed the jury panel the most, but they also admired the fit of the trousers. The judges also loved Emily’s sketchbooks and the final illustrations.

Founders4Schools Special Award 26th Sept 2016 Beckie Knight-Croft was presented with a special award by Founders4Schools and Lord Holmes of Richmond to recognise the enterprising work she has achieved in arranging Careers Fairs to inspire young people about the jobs of tomorrow. Beckie introduced F4S as to how she ran a Careers Networking Event for 300 Year 8 and Year 10 students using the format of ‘speed networking’ where small groups of students rotate to speak to 10 employers within the hour who answer student’s questions about careers. F4S would now like to encourage schools from across the country to take up this approach. Beckie pictured here with Guy Rigby, from Smith & Williamson and Lord Holmes of Richmond.
