Comic Relief

A big thank you to everyone that supported the Comic Relief cake sale on Friday, either by bringing cakes in or buying them here at the Academy.

Lots of students brought cakes in, some lovely ones were made by Lauren, Nichola, Olivia-Li and Hussain, and not forgetting Miss Lomas and her form who baked and made posters to advertise the event.

We raised a total of £119.26!

Wear it Pink on Valentine’s Day

Let’s turn the Academy pink on Valentine’s Day and raise funds for a great cause!

Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

On Tuesday 14th February students are invited to wear an item of pink with their uniform and to make a voluntary donation to the charity.  We plan to hold a cake sale, so any donations of cakes would be very gratefully received.

Staff will also be wearing pink and donating.

An option for parents/carers to donate on ParentPay will be set up nearer to the date.

Wear It Pink


A huge thank you to everyone who has supported our One Big Toy Appeal.  We have managed to raise a fantastic total of £415.00!

This time of year can be a time of being asked to donate to lots of causes, so we really appreciate that you have supported this appeal that will benefit lots of poorly children.

This Christmas, instead of collecting toys, we asked for donations towards the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital’s One Big Toy appeal. They would like to build a multi-sensory room that will benefit even the sickest children all year round.

If you have not donated but would like to, there is still time to do so on our JustGiving page here, or parents and carers of Academy students can donate via ParentPay.

Principal’s Blog: Positivity Pays Off

I was delighted to be presenting our former Year 11 students with their GCSE certificates last week – our GCSE Celebration Evening is a lovely event, celebrating our students’ successes.  We also awarded some special prizes each year to students who have been outstanding in their studies and efforts.

The GCSEs and special awards achieved by our students represent many hours of hard work, commitment and revision, both on the part of the students and the staff supporting them through their journey to the exam room.


I think this poem written by Year 8 student, Jason Castillo, is fitting to share here, as it sums up the ethos of the Academy and how we put it into practice each day.


The Six Keys of Positivity

Being great’s not always easy,

Especially for me.

I’ve learned some things help me out’

Resilience is key.


Discriminating gets us nowhere,

Neither you nor me.

Treat each other respectfully,

Equality is key.


Without trust you’re all alone,

And how sad that would be.

Be honest, listen, take advice,

Trust is key.


You give respect to get respect,

It’s obvious you see.

Positive attitudes, friendships made,

Respect is key.


Aiming high and working hard,

Be the best that you can be.

“Good enough” isn’t good enough!

Excellence is key.


Do all these things and you’ll be proud,

It’s right, don’t you agree?

Show off the skills that you have got,

Pride is key!
