Year 8 showed the rest of Arena Academy their fantastic attendance points totals. Great efforts for your attendance last week Year 8. 

A special shout out to Mr Skidmore’s Form for their 99.2% attendance!

British Values was the topic of the assemblies last week for Arena Academy.

Students learnt about Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, & Mutual Respect and Tolerance of religious beliefs, alongside what each of these values mean to their Academy.

Students had the opportunity to take part in a research study by engagements and insight agency Beat Freeks, who work with young people who dare to use their creativity to challenge the way of the world.

This study was a part of Aston Villa Football Club’s project research. 

Students enjoyed the session, giving their views on the topics at hand.

The D&T Faculty at City Academy have been sharing the creative work produced by students this term.

We love to see students expressing their creativity inside the classroom and during home learning. 

It is great that the D&T faculty takes such pride of sharing their student’s efforts, from block printing to logo designs.

Jewellery Quarter Academy are delighted to introduce some of their new Combined Cadet Forces Year 8 recruits.

They are looking forward this exciting opportunity and to get stuck into their contingent activities after school together.

West Midlands Police and Jewellery Quarter neighbourhood team were invited in to JQA last week to discuss careers in the force with our Year 8 students.

Learning inside and outside of the classroom at Rockwood Academy.

From dodgeball with Year 7 in the sports hall to home learning with Year 8.

The Year 7 dodge ball competition required skill, agility, power, speed and strength.

Last week our Eternal Flames met to share ideas for their school’s contribution towards the Horizons 2021 Festival.
