Y11 BTEC Sport - Primary School Leadership

Last week our Y11 BTEC Sport students visited local Primary Schools to deliver sports activities. Students have been planning and preparing sessions as part of their course for the last few weeks, and on Monday and Wednesday had the opportunity to deliver to nearly 400 pupils at Wold Academy, Rokeby Primary School and Ainthorpe Primary School. The activities will provide some excellent evidence for their current unit as they look to meet the requirements of the course.
The students braved the weather to deliver fun and engaging lessons in Rugby, Netball and Football. Luckier students chose Badminton and were able to stay inside! The response from the Primary School pupils was outstanding and they can't wait to have our leaders in again. Our students did a brilliant job and they should be very proud. Well done to all 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.
