Happy New Year to you all! Two weeks have flown by and our students have been an absolute credit to us all. Amazing focus, hard work and RESPECT being shown to one another.
Year 7 have enjoyed a day over at Birches Valley this week to support their geography curriculum. They built shelters, cooked marshmallows (over fires they were supervised to light) and learnt about the natural environment.
A big well done to our Year 10 and 11 learners who have been busily attending period 6 intervention sessions. These are specifically tailored to support the students where they most need it.
Finally, a really interesting week for all students considering their future careers. Many providers have been in the academy this week delivering assemblies to each year group. Organisations such as: the Army, the Navy, Staffordshire University and Progressive Sports delivered talks and there was presentation on university life from a current university student for our SUA6 cohort. All students have been a credit to the academy and the feedback received from the speakers was very complimentary.
Welcome to Staffordshire University Academy, where we embrace all students and encourage them to aspire, believe and achieve. We are both students who have come through the main academy and we are excited to be a part of the school’s improvement. Our daily experiences demonstrate the improvements made as the senior leadership team work alongside staff, students and our community to continually develop the academy for those within it.
The academy provides many fantastic experiences for all of its pupils. From the masterclasses at local universities offered by leading academics to sixth form students, through to a residential for year 7 students developing their life skills away from home. We also have a fantastic work experience programme for year 10 and a bespoke NCS programme for our year 11 students.
We also offer a wide range of qualifications. There are both BTECs, GCSEs and V Certs on offer for Year 11, and A Levels and Applied generals available for Sixth Form. The support for students from teachers and staff is the best it has ever been, allowing us to boost our grades and go on to higher education.
It is our opinion that our academy is on course to be the best in our area. By providing the opportunities, environment and enrichment to allow students to go on and achieve their best. We would invite anyone to come and visit the academy to see the excellent work going on to allow students to reach their potential.
