Spring Term

posted 24 Apr 2019, 07:16 by Liz Pattinson

Another busy term comes to an end for the majority of the school but for Year 11 and staff, the high pace continues through Easter. All year 11 students are invited and encouraged to attend the vast array of revision and support sessions put on in all subjects throughout the holidays.

It is an incredibly exciting time to be part of Alde Valley Academy as we develop our partnerships with Waveney Valley Academies Trust and their associated schools as well as our local business partners. One such partnership which is providing a fantastic Post-16 route for our students into ALevels and associated pathways with is Sir John Leman High School in Beccles. The Headteacher Mr M Taylor has committed to provide transport for any Alde Valley Academy students free of charge next year to Sir John Leman.

This newsletter is a great overview of the fantastic opportunities that our students are offered both inside and outside the classroom. We are currently organising a Presentation Evening at the Snape Maltings Concert Hall to celebrate the successes of our students with their family, friends and teachers from Alde Valley and our local primary schools. Please keep an eye open for the invite to the evening on 9th May 2019.

I would like to thank you once again for your support in helping us to maintain high standards with regard to uniform and appearance. We are considering insisting that girls wear trousers from September 2019 and I am keen to hear from any parent who has any strong views on this proposal. Please send any views to Mr Ketteringham;  n.ketteringham@aldevalley.suffolk.sch.uk.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Easter and look forward to welcoming all of our students back on Wednesday 24th April 2019.
