A great start to the academic year! Team SUA are raring to go and ready to welcome our prospective families to our Open Evening on 4th October from 6.00pm until 8.30pm. Staff are working hard to show case the excellent education on offer here at SUA and priming students ready to engage with younger learners as they make their choices for September 2019.
In other news Tempest have been to visit and taken photographs of each member of Team SUA, treasured memories in the making!
Parents’ Forum was held on 24th September and attended by 25 families, our best turn out yet. Parents’ received information about academy results, our development plan priorities, academy-home communication, knowledge organisers and attainment zones. The presentation can be found in the Parents’ Forum section below. Our next Prents' Forum meeting is calendared for Tuesday 13th November 6-7pm - please join us.
Our sixth form are currently arranging our Macmillan Coffee morning for Friday 28th September. We are looking forward to raising lots of money together for this national charitable event in our biggest coffee morning yet. Students have been encouraged to bring a small contribution in to buy a cake during break/lunchtime. Alternatively they could sponsor a member of staff taking part in our internal bike challenge in trying to guess who covers the most distance in their leg of the journey!
We look forward to year 7 and year 13 Parents’ Evening on 16th October, 4-6.30pm. This will be an opportunity to meet form tutors and to see how well the start of the new year has been so far.
Finally, we are really excited to be partnering with The Birmingham REP once more for our year 7 and year 8 students, who are writing, directing and then performing their very own 100 word play, which will be a curtain raiser for The REP's Christmas production of The Wizard of Oz in early December. We can’t wait to see how the pieces develop over the next few weeks!
