A group of Year 13 students together with P16 teaching staff, took part in a fun-packed evening of bowling in Dudley. The students confidently took charge at the start of the evening however, staff held their nerve despite the poor start and were soon showing off their (very) hidden bowling talents! Probably to everyone’s surprise – including their own!
There is a very useful website for students considering making applications to the UK’s top universities – the Russell Group universities. On their website is a very helpful booklet which, for those students already clear about the degree course they would like to study at university, offers excellent advice about choosing subjects from the IB groups. The link to the website is included below:
For any advice about choosing subjects at P16 you can, of course, also speak to Mr Guy and Dr Higgs-Allen.
What a buzz! There was a full house at the RSA Academy on Wednesday evening as the current Year 11 students and their parents came to the Academy to find out more about the P16 qualifications on offer. The evening began with introductions from Mr Redmond and Mr Guy followed by the current Head Girl and Boy – Eleanor and Liam. They spoke about the many opportunities available at the Academy on top of the prestigious International Baccalaureate qualifications and vocational subjects.
We have had a very successful start to our football programme here at the RSA Academy. This is the first year that we have run this course and we are very pleased with the progress to date.
Year 10 students are now being asked to secure placements for their Work Experience. The purpose of Work Experience is to help students prepare for the transition from school to work. It provides a greater understanding of the world of work and its expectations; the chance to learn new skills which are adaptable to both the working environment and the Academy; and hopefully help to decide what career paths students may want to pursue after education. It is therefore absolutely vital that your child participates in the 2 weeks.
