Hull Young People's Parliament - SAW Visit

Eight students from the academy represented us this week at the Hull Young People's Parliament at the Guildhall in Hull. 
 
They joined groups from schools across the city in debating issues and ideas, and making decisions about the future prospects of others. The day began with a Q&A session with the Lord Mayor of Kingston Upon Hull, the Young Mayor and members of the Youth Parliament on topical issues, such as, knife crime and mental health. They then debated the campaign for 2019/20 - Protecting the Environment.
 
All the students contributed to the debate and discussion, and as ever represented the academy with great professionalism and maturity. Congratulations to all those involved; Emily Holt, Ellie Culliney, Dylan Wilkinson, Megan Winter, Owen Lewis, Jack Cooke, Beth Winter and Harry Willis.

Y6 Virtual Open Night - Transition Update

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.
