Congratulations to Mr Basile's Tutor for their outstanding attendance over the last few weeks. Since returning from Half-Term, E07-CBA have managed to completed two full weeks of 100% attendance! Tutors are rewarded for perfect attendance each week with a series of escalating prises.
To celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018 Sirius Academy West hosted their own version of The Apprentice for nearly 100 pupils from our local Primary Schools. Pupils from Rokeby, Christopher Pickering, Wheeler, Ainthorpe and Bricknell competed to create, develop and market their own Safari Park.
Over 20 Year 10 students attended Craven Park yesterday (Thursday) for an all day Enterprise event to mark Global Entrepreneurship Week. This was attended by many of our local secondary schools and I am happy to say that our Year 10's did not let us down, delivering a 2nd place out of 18 teams competing to win.
Due to the current restrictions that we all face we are unable to host our annual Open Night for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. We acknowledge the important decision that you all are set to make in selecting your preference for secondary education in 2021 and are keen for that decision to be an informed one.
Thus, we are hosting a Virtual Open Night on Thursday 8th October 2020 for all pupils that are considering Sirius Academy West as their destination for September 2021. The evening will feature the premiere of our own short film and also provide additional links to other informative videos. These will include introductions to key staff, testimonials from current students, overviews of the varied subjects and courses available at the academy, and an all access tour following a current student during an academy day.
The event will also promote the academy’s thorough transition programme that seeks to remove barriers to movement from Year 6 to Year 7 and allow all pupils to thrive on arrival. Despite the enforced closure in March, many pupils in our local Primary Schools have already started this journey with themed visits to the academy in Year 5.
The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for places within Year 7 in recent years and we expect this to be repeated again this year. We encourage pupils and parents to not miss out!
For any additional information regarding the event, and/or details regarding the transition process, please contact Mr Gordon on (01482) 352939. All of the Year 6 pupils in our local Primary Schools will soon receive individual invites to their evening.
