  • A visit from Nick Boles MP

    Published 29/04/19

    On Friday 26 April, twelve lucky students enjoyed a masterclass in presentation skills from Nick Boles, Member of Parliament for Grantham and Stamford.

    Mr Boles made a special visit to the academy to help students preparing for their Speaking and Listening assessments.  He gave two unscripted talks on topics chosen by the students, then discussed the pros and cons of both speeches.

    Mr Paddison (Curriculum Team Leader - English) said, “It is so rare for students to get a chance to be taught about rhetoric by a serving MP!  Our students really enjoyed the session and everyone said they felt more confident about their assessments thanks to Mr Boles.”

  • Winners of the Big Science Breakthrough!

    Published 28/09/18

    On the evening of 27 September, students from the West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s competed against all the other secondary schools and Grantham College in the "Big Science Breakthrough,"  hosted by Dallas Campbell as part of the Gravity Fields programme.  

    The brief given to students was to tell a story of science using creative arts to share their message - creativity! It’s our thing! 

    It was a wonderful evening and the standard of the productions was very high, including a fabulous production from Grantham College that included alumni from St Hugh’s - it was great to see them again.

    The result was announced by Dr Harry Cliff, a particle physicist from Cambridge University,  and the room erupted into huge applause for our wonderful young people from St Hugh’s (and their wigs!)

    The students will now be treated to an all expenses paid trip to the science museum to see the new exhibition, "The Sun: Living with Our Star."  Dr Harry Cliff is the Lead Curator of the exhibition, and our students will get to spend a day with him and his team at the museum.

    Huge thanks to Miss Kendall and Miss Mcclellan for creating this amazing project with the students, and for giving so much time to create such a  wonderful piece of scientific theatre.  Their dedication to the students' success was evident in their entire approach to the event, and the outcome is richly deserved! 

    Thanks also to Mr Hulse for his unwavering support and encouragement, and for being chief photographer for the night!

  • A great day out at Sherwood Pines

    Published 21/09/18

    Year 7 arrived at the academy bright and early on Tuesday 18 September in anticipation of the journey to Sherwood Pines. It was a joint day out with students from the West Grantham Academy St John’s, with time dedicated to enjoying the last of the summer sunshine in the great outdoors.

    As part of the iTunes U “One Best Picture” initiative, students explored the forest and captured the shadows, textures and beauty of the stunning surroundings.  Students will use the pictures to create a unique story to share with their parents through the Seesaw app and at a forthcoming presentation evening.  

    It was wonderful to see the school values of Creativity, Responsibility and Wisdom demonstrated in such a unique environment.  Sherwood Pines was an experience that will stay with everyone involved for a long time to come.
