Dear Parents and Carers,
Another busy week at Manchester Academy, with sports fixtures, a careers fair, Big Tests for Y8 and Y9 and lots of extra-curricular activities. The time given by our fantastic staff and the commitment from our students is impressive.
Next week is the Manchester Academy Open Evening on Thursday 17th October and a reminder that the Academy shuts earlier for students on Thursday at 1.40pm so we can prepare.
4th October 2019
The weather seems to have become Autumnal, if not wintry overnight. Please remind students that they can bring a waterproof outdoor coat to school to keep dry and warm but not hoodies/tracksuit tops/sweatshirts. There has been extensive roadworks around the area since the start of term and this has made traffic extremely busy. Students have to take care walking home as drivers are becoming frustrated by the queues and we do not want any accidents, especially as the weather declines.
Dear Parents and Carers,
We are now well and truly into the routines and rhythms of the new academic year and the students of Manchester Academy have made an excellent start. I would especially praise our fantastic Year 7 who have not only navigated the building with skill but have really impressed me with their enthusiasm for learning. Year 11 have begun the demanding final year of education with maturity and determination and we have a student leadership group within that cohort who will go on to change the world. In the middle years, Y8 and Y9 are adjusting to being more senior in the school and the responsibility that brings whilst Y10 now understand the challenges of the new GCSE course which they’ve recently embarked upon. Every student has demanding targets to meet
Students at Manchester Academy are celebrating today after receiving their GCSE results. We are thrilled to see the success of our students, with 44% of students studying single Sciences gaining the top grades of 9-7, 56% of Spanish students and 18% of Maths student achieving the highest grades. Our drive for Academic excellence is delivering more top grades for more students.
