Learning together for lifelong success

Claypath students have been working on creating their own limericks.

Connor from Claypath created this fantastic limerick :

There once was a British platoon
Who fought by the light of the moon
The atrocities of war
Were all that they saw
Luckily they're going... home soon

Well done Connor, great work!

After over two years since seeing many parents face to face, it was great to welcome so many Secondary and Sixth form families this evening to be able to catch up face to face on their young person’s progress. We look forward to welcoming Primary parents next Monday also.

Ks4 young people enjoyed an informative group session on antisocial behaviour, led by Lesley Hamilton, Social worker and a former Youth offending worker.
Throughout the session the young people asked thought provoking questions.
The young people were interested and demonstrated impeccable ...maturity.

Lesley commented that the group were fantastic, well mannered and overall a credit to Hope Wood Academy. She said "school has such a lovely warm and welcoming feel with a great atmosphere"

Members of Year 11 Castle class visited Just Car Care in Washington for research around Car washing as part of an Enterprise project.
The very knowledgeable and kind owners Aiden and Connor were extremely supportive and generous offering a full car cleaning kit to the Year 11 learners worth a ...whopping £150 free of charge.
We would like to thank Just Car Care for their kindness and we look forward to working with them in the future.
