Poem of the Week


This is Just to say

I have eaten

the plums

that were in

the icebox


and which

you were probably


for breakfast


Forgive me

they were delicious

so sweet

and so cold


William Carlos Williams



Readathon Week

All Years 7 to 9 students will have a chance to go down and browse during their allocated English lesson.

The fair will be open at lunchtime every day for all students to buy books from as little as £3.



Whole School Reading Lesson – Friday 24th June

On Friday 24th June, the Academy came to a stop for 30 minutes with staff and students taking part in a whole school reading lesson! The actual lesson was very simple – all staff have to do was either read the opening chapter of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ to their class (or play them the video of JK Rowling reading it if they’re not confident doing this) and fill any of the remaining time with discussion about what they have just read.

The event was witnessed by Lucy Trinder, of Dalmatian, and Matt Freeman, of Mansfield 103.2. A huge thank you to Mr Husband, Literacy Co-ordinator, for organising this – all staff and students thoroughly enjoyed the lesson!
