The Academy, its students and staff plan to support Children in Need again this year and have liaised on a number of activities aimed at continuing the Academy's wonderful record of fundraising for the charity.

We will have the following taking place in school on Friday 13 November 2015:

Children and young people will be able to wear 'non-uniform' for a donation of £1 or more.  Students and staff have agreed that there will be a theme centred on Onesies for those that wish to take part!

      Other activities include:-        

      A Bake sale at break and lunch time

Nail Bar during KS3 lunch

        Makeover of Miss Boyle

Gaming session to be held in Miss O’Neill’s classroom, using laptops

We are happy to receive donations however small or large and so, if you are happy for your children to take part in activities tomorrow, we would be grateful if they could bring some extra funds with them.
