The 20 minute reading challenge

Students awarded for the 20 minute reading challenge.

Over the last eight weeks, students have taken up the 20 minute reading challenge which required them to read for at least 20 minutes a day - and then have a special bookmark signed.  Lots of students took part and today we awarded a certificate and prize of £20 to Jack Molyneux in Year 10.  It's a fantastic achievement and very well deserved.  The perfect prize for Christmas!

Reader of the Term

Every week staff nominate students for the award of Reader of the Week.  Students receive a certificate signed by Mrs Sherman and myself, and are automatically entered into a prize draw for the end of term.  This term's lucky winner is Robert-John Martindale in Year 8!  He has been spotted on numerous occasions walking around the Academy reading books.  He is also a regular visitor to the library.  We awarded a certificate and prize of £10 to Robert.  Very well done, Robert!
