I have been very impressed by the dedication and commitment that all students have shown during the first half term of the academic year.  Year 7 have settled in very well to their new academy and Year 8 have continued their hard work from last year.

I am very proud of all of the effort stamps students have received for their hard work in lessons.  We have given out 6,799 effort stamps since September.  Effort stamps, along with attendance and participation in house competitions earn house points.  Please find below the house league table for the end of this half term.   Congratulations to Nelson who are currently in the lead.

There have been many notable successes this half term.  Two Year 8 students represented us at a climate change conference and they will be cascading the information to the rest of the students after half term.  The Year 7 boys’ football team beat Harris Sutton 4 – 3 and have progressed to the next round of the cup; the Year 7 girls’ football team won the Federation competition and the table tennis team came 2nd in the Borough competition. 

We have many exciting opportunities for the students.  Year 7 have a visit to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the Old Vic on Friday 6th December and a trip to the Tower of London on either the 9th or 10th December.  Year 8 are going to the Human Body Exhibition on either the 9th or 10th December and there is an optional visit to see ‘The Woman in Black’ during the evening of 28th November at The Fortune Theatre.

On the 21st November we have the Wimbledon Parents Association family quiz night.  This will be an important fund raising event for the academy as we try and achieve our goal of purchasing a new minibus for the academy.  Please save the date and the WPA will be in touch after half term about how you can secure your place for the night.

On 11th and 12th December we have our Autumn celebration where both Year 7 and 8 students will have the opportunity to perform. 

Year 7 parents will have received information about the PGL visit in June and Year 8 will have the opportunity to go camping this year.  We are delighted to announce the trip to Spain for Year 8 (into Year 9) in October 2020 and the students are looking forward to the ski trip in April 2020.

The new building is progressing very well and is on track for us to move in for September 2020.  If you get the chance to pass it during half term, you will see that the frame is nearly complete.  I will be talking to all the students after half term about all of the facilities they will be able to enjoy.

We have had a lot of positive feedback from the local community about how smart the students look and their polite conduct. 

I wish everyone a restful and enjoyable half term break.
