Welcome to our final newsletter of 2021. We are delighted that students have settled into their studies at the Academy so well, and can look back on a successful first term. 

We look forward to moving into out state-of-the-art new building in 2022. On a recent tour of the site we were able to see things really progressing, with fixtures and fittings beginning to be installed in many classrooms and workshops. 
Stage and Screen production students have done a superb job building sets, creating props, operating sound and lighting, stage managing and creating films for the BOA group production of Alice in Wonderland. As a hugely successful four week run comes to an end, we can reflect on the amazing achievement of our students who, after all, only joined is in September!

Personal Development Curriculum

On Wednesday 1st December 2021, students took part in our second successful themed day as part of our Personal development Curriculum. The day covered workshops around healthy relationships and positive sexual health. Student feedback was very positive and they clearly learned so much. 100% Of our students felt that it was relevant to their age.

On Friday 28th January 2022, in conjunction with LQBT History Month in February, students will tale part in a variety of workshops featuring expert visiting speakers. The day will focus n how we create inclusive environments which allow is  to be ourselves, covering history, rights and laws, terminology and the impact of language and actions.
