  • BRITISH SCIENCE WEEK

    Published 13/03/18

    The academy has a very busy week this week celebrating British Science Week.

    The science team started the week off with a trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park with a group of year 10 students.

    On Monday, primary pupils from St John's and Sir Isaac Newton Primary came to the academy to take part in activities with sphero, catapults and took part in engineering challenges.  

    We are also very lucky to have Dr Jane Evans, a professor at Nottingham Trent University involved in the discovery, excavation and scientific analysis of King Richard III.  Dr Evans delivered a talk to the students on this subject.

    On Wednesday, Dr Suzanne Imber, a professor of Astrophysics at Leicester University will be visiting the academy to deliver talks and workshops to year 5 and 6 from St John's and years 7 to 10.

    Year 9 students will end the week with a trip to the Science Museum in London.

  • WORLD BOOK DAY

    Published 08/03/18

    Year 4 children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves at today’s World Book Day celebrated in over 100 countries across the world. The children have dressed up in a fantastic range of their favourite characters straight from the very books they love to read! 

    This year we themed our world book day around revolting rhymes and have enjoyed taking part in a revolting tea party. They have enjoyed a range of delights from ‘brains in blood sauce’ to ‘pond slime with granny’s teeth.’

  • World Book Day 2018

    Published 23/02/18

    Staff and students at The West Grantham Academy St Hugh's will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 1 March with a range of events and activities.

    All students will receive a £1 book token to exchange for one of ten special World Book Day books or used to get £1 off a range of books costing £2.99 or more. Children are never too young to start their reading journey, and the benefits are enormous - we hope, like us, you will be able to use World Book Day to celebrate reading with your child.

    We are inviting all students to attend school on 1 March dressed as one of their favourite characters from a fiction book; if they can bring the book with them too, even better! This is not a fundraising event, so we are not asking for donations.

    Throughout the day there will be a variety of events to take part in, and our annual Readathon begins on Monday 5 March.

  • Anwyn at the North of England Bowling Championships

    Published 19/02/18

    We are so proud of Anwyn (year 7), who took part in the North of England Bowling Championships in Nottingham on 27 January. 

    Anwyn played in the singles, doubles and team games, scoring an admirable 100, 116 and 99 points as a single and 144, 134 and 127 with Ella, her doubles partner. Anwyn's four-player team scored a whopping 496 in one of their games!

    Anywn says she bowls in a "back-up ball" style, which is the opposite of the more common hook style and produces a left-to-right curve when rolled with her right hand.

    Well done Anwyn!
