As part of creative curriculum, a group of GCSE food students have planned, cooked and delivered a full American diner experience for staff and students. Serving main meals, desserts and raspberry smoothies, customers were treated all in aid of fundraising for Cancer Research UK. The experience was all part of a 'wear pink' day in aid of raising awareness and money for the charity and illness. Mr Martin and his students have done a fantastic job. Other fundraising has included a bake sale and students accessorising with pink.

Musical students in year 6 from our local feeder schools came to join us for our annual Play Day on Wednesday 25 June. The students will be joining the Academy in September and the event allowed them the opportunity to work with musicians from each of our enrichment groups during the day. Parents came to watch the ‘end product’ which was showcased in an evening concert. It was wonderful to see so many talented students. The future is looking extremely bright!
