A Word from Mrs Ingham, Head Teacher

10 February 2017

We’ve had another busy week of exams, and senior pupils have certainly earned a bit of a break over the next week. I was invigilating the Maths exams this week and pupils seemed to cope pretty well with what they were being asked to do. There were some pupils who felt that they were underprepared and we are going to be working with them over the next couple of months to help them with planning, organisation and revision strategies. There’s a lot that we can do between now and the exams and with the pupils’ continued effort and the support of parents and carers we will get them to where they need to be. Pupils should keep an eye out for revision classes at lunchtimes and after school – they are well advertised in departments.

Last week, a group of senior musicians went to entertain at the Probus Club Burns’ Lunch. We received this very kind feedback: The committee and I thank you for making our Burns Lunch very special, Teacher Elsie Orr and Alasdair, Ewan, Hannah, Molly, Kaye, Miriam, and Katie, were a credit to Knox Academy. The music was very special and the way they conducted themselves is something you should be very proud of.”

I am delighted to report that Rosie Greenshields has attained her Baden Powell Award. It was a year’s worth of work with a group of other Guides, working on projects to do with healthy living, and cooking, and research into topics e.g. fashion through the ages. As ever, things that are worthwhile are hard work, but Rosie relished it and I’d like to commend her for her efforts.
