Year 8 Parents and Carers
Please check our 'letters to parents' section below to find our Year 8 into 9 Guided Pathways booklet. This is an exciting opportunity for your child to make their first steps on their journey towards success in Year 11. We ask that you read this with students and think carefully about the options that are presented. As always teachers and staff can be contacted for more information. A text message will be sent out on Friday 15th January which will contain a link to a form for you and your child to complete. The deadline for this is the 29th January.

‘Word of the Week’ is part of the Academy’s ongoing strategy to improve students’ literacy. Students are being taught the importance of language and the need for a good vocabulary, both for their school work and as an essential life skill. There is an Academy WOW each week, displayed around school and on the website, and its use is reinforced by VMG tutors and in school assemblies. The word is designed to make students confident in their use of a range of complex words and their meanings, in a drive to improve student articulacy to even higher levels.
“As vocabulary is reduced, so are the number of feelings you can express, the number of events you can describe, the number of the things you can identify. Man grows by language.” – Sheri S. Tepper
