Humberside Cross-Country Championships Saturday 6th February
Wet! Wet! Wet! Four Of Our Students Brave The Weather! Humberside Cross-Country Championships Saturday 6th February.
Four Sirius Academy students represented the City Of Hull in the County Cross Country Champions staged at Beverley Longcroft on Saturday 6th February.
Lauren Mclean, Jess Taylor, Ellie Robertson and Daniel Chadwick braved the horrendous elements on a typical day for this particular event. Soaked ‘to the skin’ our four showed their true colours by just turning up and taking part to represent the city.
All four students ran their hearts out cheered on by parents and grandparents with Lauren Mclean 14th; Daniel Chadwick 15th ; Jess Taylor 39th and Ellie Robertson 40th – all highly respectable runs.
I have wrote about students turning out for such events before and I reiterate that it takes character and a willingness to better oneself environmentally, physically and mentally under extreme conditions. It takes a certain type of person to do this and achieve success for their academy, city and more importantly themselves!
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.
