  • Shakespeare Schools Festival - 5 and 6 November 2018

    Published 18/07/18

    The Shakespeare Schools Foundation (SSF) is a cultural education charity that uses the unique power of Shakespeare to transform lives. 

    We are delighted that the West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s will be a part of their flagship project this Autumn term. Students will be going on a thrilling journey, from rehearsing in school with their teachers to working with SSF theatre professionals in a performance skills workshop.  After months of preparation, students will be onstage performing a 30-minute abridged Shakespeare play in a professional theatre, alongside students from other local schools. It will be an exhilarating night of theatre that celebrates the community, the casts and the power of Shakespeare’s words.

    Each Autumn nearly 30,000 young people from primary, secondary and special schools across the country unite as part of the world’s largest youth drama festival, raising aspirations and unlocking the potential of students from all backgrounds.

    We are thrilled that the St Hugh's will be joining the SSF this year, and we look forward to seeing you on the performance night!

  • Frazer's Cadet League Success

    Published 26/04/18

    Our rising table tennis star Frazer (Y10) has been playing in the National Cadet League in recent months.  Frazer’s team were placed in Division 2, where they played against five teams each weekend. 

    On Sunday 22 April, the final day of competition, the hopes of the team earning a medal were still promising, but it meant they would have to survive the day without suffering defeat.  Brilliantly, they managed to secure four wins and a draw to top the division!

    Frazer alone managed to win eight out of his ten games, which is an outstanding achievement – well done, Frazer, we’re very proud of you.

  • Revision Weekend at PGL

    Published 24/04/18

    On 29 March, 36 students and 6 members of staff braved the wind, rain and mud for two nights at PGL in Caythorpe for our annual revision weekend.  Over three days students split their time between classroom-based revision and physical activities. 

    This year students were able to test their nerves on the high ropes and giant swing, as well as competing to gain the fastest time on an extremely muddy obstacle course before "earning" their cutlery at the archery range. 

    The excitement didn’t stop there; Miss McLellan and Miss Taylor encouraged the students to embrace their creative side in their maths class where they studied ratio and used this skill to make a cheesecake. Over in the English classroom a very focussed group of students worked with Mrs Hesketh and Mrs Dench on writing techniques to help with their exams.

    It was a fast-paced three days that were thoroughly enjoyed by staff and students alike.  Hopefully the students found it useful in preparation for their upcoming exams.

    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.

    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.’
