Glitzy Dance Routines for Arnold Hill Girls

India Roberts and Lucy Fretwell, both year 10 students at Arnold Hill Academy, competed against dance schools all over the Nottingham area to be selected as dancers for the Aladdin pantomine at the Nottingham Playhouse.

This was Kenneth Alan Taylor’s 33rd consecutive panto at Nottingham Playhouse, and ran from the 28th November to the 21st January. Between them the girls appeared in over 120 shows and had a fantastic time performing to packed audiences.

Well done girls!

Most Able Students Visit Magdalen College

A small group of our Most Able Year 12 students recently enjoyed a taster day at the University of Oxford, Magdalen College. Accompanied by Ms Carter, Head of Sixth Form, they were taken on a tour of the beautiful grounds (including a deer park), talked to students currently studying at Oxford, delighted in a two course lunch and had a Classics lecture. Our students were absolutely fantastic and represented the academy brilliantly. Everyone involved agreed it was the perfect way to spend a Monday!

Sportshall Athletics at Arnold Hill

On Tuesday 7th February, Arnold Hill Academy welcomed children from eight local primary schools as we hosted the Y3/4 Sportshall Athletics, Heat 3. Pupils from All Hallows, Arnold View, Arno Vale, Killisick, Parkdale, Lowdham, Stanhope and Westdale Juniors came along to the event in our new sports hall, and competed in a variety of throwing, jumping and running relay events.

The atmosphere throughout the afternoon was absolutely fantastic, and reached fever pitch during the relay races with every athlete showing great enthusiasm during their events.

Congratulations to Arno Vale who won the heat and now progress to the finals. Well done to all of the schools for the hard work they put in on the day, and the preparation that had obviously gone in prior to the event.
