Sirius Academy West hosted the second instalment of our Sports Stars programme this week with a full day of Cheerleading. The initiative aims to bring together talented performers in Year 5 in a variety of sports and expose them to different activities.
The pupils had the opportunity to work with our very own Cheerleading squad to develop tumbles, jumps, stunts and pyramids before designing their own routine! All routines were then performed in front of a panel of judges to find the winners.
Fantastic effort and attitude shown throughout the day by all the students. Well done! Christopher Pickering Primary School were deemed the champions beating off fierce competition from Rokeby, Ainthorpe, Francis Askew and Eastfield.
Thank you to all those that attended and Miss Mead, Miss Low and our cheerleading squad for their support and expertise! We look forward to seeing the Primary Schools again in April for Orienteering.
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.
