Learners are educated in Scarborough at the Intervention Weekend
On Friday 5th November, a group of students visited The Spa Hotel in Scarborough for a weekend of Maths and English Intervention. Friday saw enthusiastic, hard working students produce excellent levels of work for both Maths and English. The Maths and English work involved a carousel process of students doing a number of topics to support their needs for the early entry exam in November. On the evening the students were taken to the theatre to watch "The Price of Everything" The public gave excellent feedback to the learners about their mature attitude and behaviour whilst on the visit The Saturday morning session saw much of the same hard work and dedication from the students to develop their Maths and English knowledge and skills. The atmosphere and working ethos from the students was excellent. After a tough working session the students walked to the sea front for a well-deserved lunch of fish and chips before returning to Hull. The feeling from all was the weekend had been productive and good preparation for the early entry 2010.
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.
