Iceberg phonecalls

Thursday 19 November 2020

This week we have launched a new element of academy life which we are very excited to share with you. Every week our Principal will be calling the parents of one pupil/student from each year group who has been nominated by their Head of Year for doing something impressive. Ms Edis has named these calls her 'Iceberg Calls' as this may have been a quiet and ‘under the surface’ achievement.

Our first group of pupils/students are:

Year 7            Leashae   She showed excellent compassion to comfort and console her friend during a difficult day. She suggested that she attend the breakfast club so she could have a calm start to the day after an incident that happened.
Year 8 Matias Matias has been incredibly mature and hard-working. He is always kind and mature in his response to adults and peers. Every lesson I have walked past he is one of the hardest working pupils there just head down getting on with his work.
Year 9 Claudia Highest house points last week, flies under the radar and has been really engaged in lessons. 
Year 10 Rayyan Showing bravery and leadership throughout his ambassadorship interview & translating this to both his classes/breaktimes and enrichment. He is showing a commendable level of maturity and leadership.
Year 11 Theo-An He is the highest house point earner in the year group, showing determination to move from in the lowest 10 in the year group to number 1!
Year 12 Jafer Currently leading with the highest HP number for this half-term and is taking on the impressive task of BTEC Applied Science + Art A-Level and currently excelling at both with praise from both departments.
Year 13 Charlotte For showing great determination and focus across mock week. She has been in revising solidly even on the days she does not have exams.
