The RSA Academy catering team is always keen to find out what their customers (our students) like about Academy food and also about any suggestions they have about new menus and so on.

On Thursday 3rd April, 8 of our Year 13 IB Visual Arts students organised and held their final exhibition to showcase selected pieces of their art work from the past 2 years. The students had all worked very hard on their own themes and on becoming independent artists.

Many of our Post-16 students regularly undertake work placements as part of their courses. We always welcome feedback from these placements – it might help us to improve things for next time, or it just might be something as pleasing as the attached letter that we received this week. Well done to Chanel and Amy! This bodes well for their future employment prospects!
