Executive Principal’s Message
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to the summer edition of our newsletter.
I hope you enjoy reading about some of the many activities our pupils have enjoyed
over the past few weeks.
Thank you for your continued support and I would like to conclude by wishing you
and your family a safe, happy and fun summer break and look forward to seeing you
again in September.
Mr C. Dillon

Speak Out
A group of Year 7 and Year 8 pupils recently represented the Academy at the ‘Speak Out’ competition held at the University
of Sheffield Management School. The competition, organised by Business in The Community, saw our pupils mentored by
lawyers fromDLA Piper to prepare them for the event.
The competition brief was for the pupils to come up with suggestions for how people in their local community could gain
access to legal advice in the future. The two teams both had really good ideas, with the boys team coming up with a local
drop in centre and advice line whilst the girls team developed an app idea and a compare site online. Both teams gave
excellent presentations with the girls taking the ‘Most Pioneering’ award for their speech about how the legal service may
look in the future.
