Post-16 Head Student Notices

  • Congratulations to our new Deputy Head Students! – After an election earlier this week, it was announced in assembly that Carrie Lunt and Ali Hiader will be our new Deputy Head Students for 2012 – 2013.  Ali and Carrie are expected to become our Head Students for next year once our present ones leave at the end of this academic year.
  • Well done to our new Form Representatives! – This week, Post-16 forms elected a member of their form to represent them in meetings with Head Students. Over the course of the academic year, Form Representatives will be assisting Head Students with a whole manner of their duties. Meetings with Head Students take place every other Thursday.
  • Fundraising & Charitable Events Update – Children in Need will take place on November 16th, with many fun and exciting events to be announced in the coming weeks. Cake and Samosa sales will be taking place on Thursdays, with sweet sales every Friday throughout the year to support Children in Need, Samaritans and Safoura’s charity.  Safoura, who was a student at the Academy until last year, spent much of her free time in and after school raising funds for her family and local orphanage in her home nation of Togo, West Africa. She raised a considerable amount last year, helping the people in her village buy essential food and goods, such as rice and clothes. Although Safoura left us for University in July, we will continue to support her charity throughout this year and beyond.
