Email from a local resident...
"I’m just writing to inform you how well-mannered and behaved some of your students are. Yesterday four of your students saw me struggling out side Asda in Belverdere, as I am 8 and and a half months pregnant. When they saw me struggling they offered to help me. They helped me carry my shopping up the hill to the top of the road my house is on and when we got to my house I tried to offer them some money for helping me but they declined my offer. I asked the girls for their names so I could tell the headmaster how well mannered and thoughtful they were they said their names were Sonnie, Dione, Francesca and Ellie. You as a school should be extremely proud of these teenagers as most children wouldn’t of bothered to help. Thank you. Sara."
Feedback on our talented students...
"I just wanted to drop you an email to say a big thank you for inviting me along to the Christmas Concert yesterday evening. I thought it was a really great evening and I was hugely impressed by all of the performers. Nicholas and Sydney were fabulous narrators of the evening and the choir, drama group and readers were all outstanding. There is without doubt huge amounts of talent within our Academy and I feel privileged to be part of that transition journey. Please do pass on my congratulations to all those who took part and please pass on my thanks to everyone who has devoted so much time into putting on a really amazing evening. With warmest best wishes for Christmas to you and all at the Academy." Dawn Turner, Governor
