G&T Maths and English Visits

[19 Oct 2018]

This week the academy hosted the first stage of our Maths and English G&T Programme with eight of our local Primary Schools. Over 120 pupils from Christopher Pickering, Rokeby, Ainthorpe, Wold, Paisley, Chiltern, Francis Askew and Anlaby Acre Heads had the opportunity to work with subject specialists in Maths and English to develop key skills in preparation for their forthcoming SATS. The same pupils will be invited to similar sessions in March and April to explore additional content prior to May.

The attitude and conduct of the pupils throughout was exemplary. Well done! In the morning the pupils worked on inference and writing analytical statements based on Miss Haversham and Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. In the afternoon pupils worked as teams to solve puzzles based on decimals, fractions and percentages with the help of our Year 10 host Josh Abbott. Parents and pupils are encouraged to visit the academy website to see images from the day and examples of written work by the pupils.

A massive thank you to Mr O’Neill, Mrs Noble, Miss Khatun, Mr Wright and Mr Agyei for their contribution to the event.

Any parents that still require additional support and guidance regarding the application process for Year 7 please contact us at any time on (01482) 352939. We are still more than happy to provide bespoke tours of the academy and individual meetings to ensure that you receive the necessary information prior to confirming your decision for September 2019.
