We are the champions of the Black Country!!!
Yesterday the year 9 boys and the year 9 girls Athletics teams took part in the Black Country Games.
This is the final tier of the indoor championships in which 170+ schools from the whole of the black country are invited to attend in the early stages. After both teams stormed through the Sandwell stages over the previous months, they went into today looking to capitalise on that success.
Both teams took away gold medals and have become champions of the Black Country... [continue "Champions" story]
OAT Debating Competition
On Tuesday, 17 of our year 9's went down to Oxford Union for the OAT Debating Competition.
Unfortunately we didn't win the competition but we have lots of feedback and ideas for when we compete next year. The quality of the debates our students delivered were to a very high standard.
The students debated on issues such as "Should children have the right to vote?" and "Should celebrities receive stricter punishments?".
A big well done to all the students who took part. View the pictures from the Oxford trip on Facebook
Consultation to change the School day
The changes, alongside the rationale for change, are set out in the document below. We have gone through the process of consulting staff at the Academy and would like to take on board the views of parents, guardians and stakeholders before putting in place any changes for September.
Please download the Consultation letter and form [pdf 320 KB] and return to the Academy reception by Monday 27 March 2017.
