It is that time of year again where our Parent Forum host our festive Christmas Market at the Academy (Flyer attached) 

One of the many stalls we will have is our ever-popular chocolate tombola. We are seeking your support in terms of chocolate! If you could please send in some chocolate bars, fun-size packs, any chocolate goods that we could use for our Chocolate Tombola, we'd be most grateful. Please send your chocolate donations to your child's tutor before Friday the 18th November. Of course this will only work if students do not eat the chocolate before they hand it in! haha

Thanks in advance for your support. Of course, we'd love to see you all at our event on the 19th November - 10am - 2pm. Enter via Woolwich Road. With 30 stalls of quality retailers, we anticipate this to be a great market to kick start your Christmas shopping.&nbsp

@founders4schools Special Award

Beckie Knight-Croft receiving award

On 26th September at the House of Lords a group of the most forward-thinking teachers from across in the UK were presented with special awards by Founders4Schools and Lord Holmes of Richmond to recognise the work they were doing to inspire young people about the jobs of tomorrow. 

This Award recognised enterprising work in arranging Careers Fairs featuring start up and scale up businesses. 

Beckie Knight-Croft from Bexleyheath Academy in London was presented the award by Guy Rigby, from Smith & Williamson and Beckie was congratulated by Lord Holmes of Richmond. 

Half-way through last year, in response to demand from schools already using our ‘role model’ supply service, F4S introduced a new service type which made it easier for schools to get fast-growing small companies into their careers fairs rather than just their classrooms.  

Beckie Knight-Croft introduced us to how they do it in Bexleyheath, which we think is a particularly high impact formula we’d like to encourage schools from across the country to take up. 

Bexleyheath ran a Careers Networking Event for 300 year 8 and year 10 students using the format of ‘speed networking’ where in small groups of students rotate to speak to 10 employers within the hour who answer student’s questions about careers.

Commenting on the experience, Year 10 student, Ruby said: “The event was beneficial as it gave me an insight into what employers will expect. It prepared me to work in a team and think about the skills and qualities I have already and those I need for the future. I really enjoyed it!”
