A movie and popcorn evening was on offer to Academy students from forms with the best attendance records. Organised by the Academy’s Attendance Manager, Mrs Holmes, the event was hosted as a means of promoting good attendance among students and rewarding those who had succeeded in achieving this.
During half term five an attendance race had been held between form groups. Students from the winning form, which had achieved the highest rate of attendance from each year group, were rewarded with the opportunity to attend the movie and popcorn evening.
The movie of choice was Cool Runnings which the students really enjoyed.
At the Academy we encourage all of our students to strive for 100% attendance. By not missing time in school students are able to get the most from their education. Also, a good attendance record is vital in order to gain a place at college in the future.
