The Sirius Academy West Year 10 Rugby team matched their Year 11 counterparts from the previous week by overcoming the significant disadvantage of playing with only 11 players to finally overcome Kelvin Hall to gain a victory which sees them qualify for the RFL Yorkshire Cup stages.
The Sirius Academy West Year 11 Rugby League team produced a tremendous display of discipline, teamwork and effort to overcome the odds by defeating Archbishop Sentamu with only 13 players including three Year 10 players.
Please congratulate the following Year 7 rugby boys on winning 3 games and losing 1 in the Hull Schools League, which means they will now qualify for the Yorkshire Stages when they come back after half term.
The newly formed Sirius Academy West Girls College Rugby League team started their College league with a tough away fixture at Wigan. With only 9 players available to play in the 9 a-side match, they had to play in a 50 minute game with no subs in very warm conditions and managed to come out with a well deserved draw.
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.
