On 17th March Year 10 took part in 'Business Day'. Students met with lots of different visitors/businesses.

A great experience for all involved.


Confident Communicators

Last week, the school was able to host a brilliant workshop called “Confident Communicators".

Fourteen Year Eight girls came to the library in the morning, feeling very unsure about what was in store for them.  Under the fantastic and frenetic tuition of Matt Bagley from Camouflage Learning, the girls were shown that they already had the skills to be confident, communicate well and not to fear failure.  By the end of the workshop everyone, including our most reserved students, was able to give a first class presentation under the most stressful circumstances – involving bicycle horns, rattles and a rubber chicken!

Leena said that she used the skills she had gained in her drama lesson the next day and was congratulated on her outstanding performance.

The workshop was supported by Doddle www.doddlelearn.co.uk”

A Star Wars Group - Visit to Cambridge

On the 1st March , fifteen students in the A Star Wars Intervention Group visited Cambridge University with Mrs Watts and Mr Day. Students spent the morning at the Cambridge Hilton Hotel taking part in a seminar by the Pixl association entitled - 'Getting into Top Universities’. 

The seminar provided lots of hints and tips in relation to applying for university and how to secure the best grades at GCSE.  Students then enjoyed a tour round Gonville and Caius College campus where they visited student accommodation, the library, recreational areas and the grounds. 

Students were given a real insight into life at Cambridge University and the group were inspired to apply to the top universities in the country.


Acle’s Got Talent 2017

On Friday 24 th February students of Acle Academy hosted ‘Acle’s Got Talent’.

Year Eleven students at Acle Academy organised this event which featured performances from both students and teachers. Dylan Barber, Bethany Blake and Abigail Bruce organised this event, entirely from their own initiative. They had created promotional materials, auditioned and selected acts, ensured rehearsal time as well as staffing the event with stage crew and front of house staff. This event is testament to the wonderful entrepreneurial skills and initiative of our students who have planned an ambitious and professional event.

All funds will be donated to the East Anglia Childrens’ Hospital Nook Appeal. The student organisers feel very passionately about raising awareness and funds of this important local charity. The nook will be a new hospice, aimed at young people with a terminal illness. EACH need to raise £10 million for the new building which will be on one floor, for ease of movement, and will have larger corridors, a hydrotherapy pool and will offer family bereavement services.

Doors opened at 6:30pm and the evening started at 7pm. There was an interval with drinks, food and stalls so there were plenty of fun things for all of the family.

We are very proud of the wonderful achievements of our students in creating such an inspiring event for a worthy cause.
