Mrs Barnes received a visitation from the house captains, and received some lovely words from them, and the beautiful flames that you all (or nearly all) were able to sign. She was thrilled, and the students did themselves proud.
Sunday the 16th July we joined 47 teams to race our Formula 24 Car at the Hull KC Stadium as part of a Greenpower STEM Project.
Our 9 Year 10 students have worked all year to build, design and the final stage was the big race. They have developed key skills in science, technology engineering and maths to create this fantastic car.
The students said “This is just the start as we intend to continue racing and our next race will be an international race on the 7th October. We also want to become leaders where we support younger students to develop their skills to design a car, and race it.”
This project has been unique, something that has engaged a mix of students and something that we would love to build on. We look forward to updating you on the developments of the TSLA Formula 24 Car.
Following our reassessment at the end of July, we are delighted to announce that we have once again been awarded the Investors in Pupils Award for the next three years. The award is an established national quality mark that recognises, develops and extends student voice and participation strategies to build young people’s life skills, character and resilience. All standards of the award were met beyond expectation and there were no areas for development identified.

The St Lawrence Academy impressed Dame Kelly Holmes with their innovative and creative project to raise awareness of Mental Health. As part of the AQA Unlocking Potential Project with Dame Kelly Holmes 4 students (Leon, Rios, Brigita & Athanasia) planned the project which created the lyrics for a Mental Health Song. The lyrics linked with the Youth Council’s 5 steps to positive mental well-being.
Working with a young musician and our talented singers we produced North Lincolnshire’s first ever Mental Health song ‘Create the Change’. Amanda featured with Kelly Holmes featured as one of the vocalists.
We are proud of the song and Dame Kelly Holmes also is keen to share the powerful words of this song. Well Done to all the students who contributed to this amazing project.
