Please see attached Short Break Group Activities timetable which are available to young people with SEND up to the age of 18 who are known to the team.
We are starting a family cooking course next Thursday 18th Jan 3-5pm. This is for parent and Child to work together and is run in partnership with Adult Education for 6 weeks.
The focus for Lincolnshire Show this year is RAF 100. Students will need to run a project which develops a media campaign advertising the Aviation Zone at Lincolnshire Show as we celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force.
At the initial stages we want to research the RAF/ RAF 100 and also to explore the opportunities for students in terms of joining the cadets and opportunities within the community through this.

On the 17th October our year 9 students visited Lincoln Cathedral as part of our Raising Achievement Day. We took part in the Lincoln Diocese Secondary Schools Festival along with other Church of England Secondary Schools from around the Diocese. The students had a great time taking part in a wide variety of workshops including hand bell ringing, photography, birds of prey, embroidery, apothecary and medieval painting. They had a tour of the Cathedral and took part in a singing workshop. To end the day we joined together in worship and thanksgiving with our friends from other schools.
Our students said
“There were so many action shots, so many beautiful photography moments”. – Aysha Akhtar
“The Cathedral was an amazing place. I really advise you to go”. – Jakub Cierniak
“I really enjoyed the whole day. As I love science apothecary was really interesting and seeing how medicine and science has evolved over time is extraordinary”. – Rinaz Amir
“Embroidery was quite an amusing workshop. We made little pictures of crosses out of sewn string to take home. So not only did I receive a lot of information about how sewing is religiously important to Christians I also developed my sewing skills. So that was pretty cool”. – Aaliyah Gul
“During the tour we noticed there were a lot of stained glass windows as people were unable to read back then so the stained glass windows were used to explain different stories”. – Ambreen Choudhury
“The day I spent at Lincoln Cathedral was fantastic. I learnt things that I didn’t know before and just had a great time; So thank you for creating such a wonderful day. – Caitlyn Sykes
On Thursday 19th October, we held our annual Sports Presentation Evening. Once again this event was well attended and we were delighted to be joined by our special guest for the evening, Geri Mcleod-Pratt (Previous GB athlete and Athlete Mentor for the Unlocking Potential Programme). Our students were awarded with a vareity of accolades to celebrate their sporting year of 2016/17. The ten major award winners were as follows: –

A huge well done to the award winners on the evening and also to those who collected sports participation certificates in the sports assemblies leading up to the event itself. Without the continued dedication and passion that our students show towards sport at the academy, a celebration evening of achievement and success would not be possible. Keep up the good work and we look forward to seeing new faces in our top ten awards next year!
