Principal's Blog

The students have had a great first week back after a well-deserved rest over half term.

Our theme for the week was ‘Festivals’ and we explored Bonfire Night, the Day of the Dead that is celebrated every year in Mexico and Diwali, the Hindu Festival of lights.  We discussed how festivals unite people towards a certain cause and involve celebration.  Festivals are an expressive way for us all to celebrate our heritage, culture and traditions.

The visit to the Tower of London was a great success.  The students attended a session on 1097 and William I’s greatest fortress and palace, the White Tower.  They explored the nature of power and the challenges facing a new King after the Norman Conquest.  The guide at the Tower was incredibly impressed with the knowledge the students had gained during their History lessons and many members of the public commented on how smart the students looked in their uniform and how well they presented themselves.

Our World Religion Day gave students the opportunity to explore five different religions.  They worked incredibly well together and could be seen tucking into bagels at break time and completing all of the puzzles and clues around the academy to help them find out information about Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism.  There were many thoughtful debates and the teachers were impressed with their determination to find out as much as possible.  The day culminated in a visit to the Mosque in Morden. 

Year 7s have been busy collecting their reward points and commendation stickers so they can attend the Hot Chocolate morning and Principal’s breakfast.  I am delighted that the students are working hard in their lessons and gathering reward points for the effort they are putting into their work.

On Friday, the girls’ football team narrowly lost to Harris Academy Crystal Palace by 2 goals to 1.  Shaakirah scored for the girls who all played with skill, enthusiasm and professionalism.

Parents’ Evening is on Monday and on Thursday at 19.15, we have the planning committee for the new build at Merton Civic offices – I would be delighted if you could come along and show you support.

Have a good week!
