Remembrance Day - SAW Pay Our Respects

As with everything, COVID-19 restrictions have required a departure from the norm, however the school and the Sirius Combined Cadet Force have still managed to come together to remember those who have fought and fallen.

This morning, students, staff and members of the CCF came together to take part in the Act of Remembrance.

Cerys Lee, our senior CCF Cadet laid a wreath on behalf of the school and The Old Kingstonians, with the Last Post being played by Mr Bunn our resident bugler to mark 11am.

To further mark Remembrance, students have created poetry and wreaths. These images have all been put together to create a Remembrance video on the school website and Twitter.

Well done to all those involved.

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.
