Presentation Evening. We were thrilled to celebrate the success of our students in their examination courses and had an enjoyable evening with them.


Congratulations to one of our Year 13 students, Ross Ludlow, who was invited by the Chairman of the London Scottish Football Club to represent the Academy at the St Andrew's day lunch at The Savoy. Ross attended this prestigious event on the 27th November and even had the opportunity to meet Princess Anne!

SHANNON COOKE, YEAR 11 MAKES HER DEBUT FOR ENGLAND! After being selected as one of 30 girls throughout the whole of England to be part of the England U16 squad I spent two days at the U16 England squad camp in October half term. I was extremely proud to be selected to represent England in a squad of 20 girls to play against Germany on Wednesday 18th November. When I arrived at Warwick University on the Monday we had team meetings, training sessions and recovery and repeated again on Tuesday. On Tuesday I was told I was in the starting 11 v Germany. I was so honoured to be representing my country and make my debut for England. We travelled up to St George's Park on Wednesday morning, the grounds were phenomenal. Putting on my England shirt was a feeling like no other and to be in the starting 11 was indescribable. I played the whole match and was awarded my shirt at the end of the match. I was also awarded a cap for England, hopefully the first of more to come.


Our Year 13 students are fast receiving offers from a variety of universities. We have some students who have obtained unconditional offers and one student who has secured a Higher Level Apprenticeship with Rolls Royce where he will be sponsored through his degree. We have recently had students interviewed at Oxford and Cambridge and they now have an anxious wait for the results. Well done to all concerned. The prefects requested an assembly slot this half term and spoke to other members of the student body about tolerance. This was delivered to some students just after the Paris attack, completely coincidentally. We are really proud of our students for getting up on stage and speaking about issues that they are passionate about. It takes guts to get up in front of their peers! PREFECT ASSEMBLIES


On the last day of term we welcomed our current Year 12 and last year's Year 13 students back to School for the Sixth Form
