Mia Duke the Queen of Sirius Hull Schools Athletics!

A fascinating day which produced many individual and team performances.

It was always going to be difficult emulating the year before when we won four from the five overall championships to be won. Nevertheless, there were some brilliant and memorable performances culminating in individual champions and with the Year 10 Girl’s winning overall. The Year 9 boy’s team finishing runners-up and just missing out.

On a hot and baking day middle and long distance events were always going to be difficult.

Sirius had six overall individual champions, all winners and all a credit to the academy, who I will mention later.

However, I must start with a young girl who epitomises everything that you could expect of a student in every sport she represents the academy.

I have seen many athletic events but the Year 9 800m Race 2015 will linger for a very long time.

Two gruelling laps of the track –Mia always competes- but with half a lap to go Mia was sixty metres behind the leader. Surely, too far to make up-but with great determination and courage- Mia fought back and gradually wore down the gap-until the very last stride and approaching the line, she plunged forwards to snatch victory from her valiant opponent. What a race and show, matched by the fantastic support Mia received, driving her to the line!

The other moment of the day was in contrast with Mia’s performance. An introverted boy who waited patiently for his opportunity and who has not competed regularly for the academy. Jack Bone smashed the shot putt record in lessons so there was some expectation.

Having nearly missed his event, Mr.A.Kay and I will always remember Jack returning from his event and with a swagger looking up to us and signalling a finger to show he was number one and victorious. This was matched by the great beam of a smile which stayed with him throughout the afternoon. We were really pleased that Jack had won!

The two athletes mentioned, although ,totally different in character, highlight what athletics and competing is about.

Our other great individual champions were in Mia Husband -200m; Jordan Shakespeare –Long Jump; Leon Stewart 200m: Josh Jarvis –Shot Putt; and the Year 10 Girl’s Relay Team in Paige Fletcher; Georgia Trevagli; Amy Jeffrey; and Jordan Shakespeare.

Well done to all the students who competed and to those staff and students who supported the day ; Miss.G.Barton; Miss.E.Bore; Mr.A.Kay; Mr.G.Bilton; Miss. Chloe Williams; Miss.K. Buckley and Stefan and Nieve our two work experience students.

All the results can be seen here and highlight great performances from many of our athletes. A successful day – please congratulate all students.

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.
