Academy News


A group of our Year 11 girls visited University of York Friday 1st December. The girls who attended have some high aspirations to work in roles such as a forensic psychologist, police officer, surgeon, social worker and nurse. They found the day informative as they learned about choosing A Levels, applying to university and budgeting at university. The day also involved a study skills ‘BrainBox’ session and a celebration of their time on the Shine programme. They were all worn out when we arrived back at 6.30pm but they had found it extremely useful too!

Yesterday, 17 of our Year 8 students visited the University of York as part of their Shine programme, where they sampled a History lecture, explored degree course choices, had a campus tour including the tv, theatre and film studies department and the law department as well as played University of York version of The Chase. To quote Mattie Chequer, ‘The day was amazing!’

Well done to  Mrs Clarke who has been shortlisted for the regional finals (North & scotland) for the STEM enthuse award. 

This year we are holding our northern regional ENTHUSE Celebration event at Centre for Life, Newcastle. The event celebrates the input of Project ENTHUSE and the local Science Learning Partnerships – through which hundreds of teachers of STEM each year are able to benefit from high impact, subject specific professional development. Evaluation and research shows the benefits this has for them, their schools and colleges and – most importantly – the young people with whom they work. 

If she wins she will be going to the national finals in London in June!!

I was delighted to take 18 Year 7 Shine students to the University of York yesterday. Their behaviour was exemplary and they learned lots about university life. They were very mature and patient.
