Year 7 Football begins with a win!

he year 7 football boys got off to an exciting start to their season with a very impressive 3-2 victory over St. Mary's. Sirius started excellently with Jack Scottow, Mikey Lewis combining excellently down the left hand side to put through Josh Hultum who forced a good save from the Mary's keeper. This set the platform for an attack minded performance playing some excellent football across the pitch. St Mary's attack was continuously broke down by the outstanding Dylan Hepworth at the back. Sirius broke the deadlock after 10 minutes with the left side attacking well playing the ball to Scottow who fired home to give the boys a well-deserved lead.

Mary's then started to dig in and managed to gain possession with only a splitting pass which gave the St Marys attacker to fire the ball home off the crossbar! 1-1. After 5 minutes of a head to head the boys dug deep with a great ball from Tyler Hackett putting Mikey Lewis through to do some great footwork past the defence to slot home in the bottom corner! Sirius was still dominating throughout with only a mistake in the back four including the goal keeper allowing Mary's to equalise. Going in to half time the boys were never going to give up and knew what they had to do to win the match. They started the second half slowly with Mary's pushing everything they had to the boys defence, they communicated well to withstand the onslaught. Sirius then caught Mary's on a break with a great pass from Scottow putting Jay Tennison in to smash the third goal in to make it 3-2. The boys dug deep for the final 10 minutes with some excellent off the line clearances from Owen Chaffer and Dylan Hepworth the lads managed to see it out until the end.

Special thanks to Martin Smith for being part of the team's success!

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.
