Our wonderful Year 9 students are fantastic ambassadors for our Academy community. The fulfil the values of our school and continuously work hard to achieve their best. Our year group has recently gone through the options process, where students have decided what options will suit them best moving into Year 10, 11 and thinking about further study. We are blessed with natural talent in a number of activities. We have a number of student who regularly compete in our debate mate programme. We have had a lot of success in many sports, most notably in Dance and Netball! We have many natural leaders, and a lot of these students are active members of the Young Well-Being Leader Programme (YWBL). This programme includes the leaders going into Year 7 forms once a week for Thinking Tuesday, being mentors during a lunch time in “7th Heaven” and lead on a multi-sports programme. Not only do they help lead with some of our younger students, they also look after animals as part of the programme. We have been recently visited by goats and lambs! Mr Pickard and Miss Wallace are very proud of every single year 9 student, and continue to look forward to some exciting times ahead!
