We are pleased to inform you that your child’s exam certificates are ready for collection from the Academy in A Block reception. During term time the reception is open from 8.00am - 4.00pm Monday to Thursday and 8.00am – 3.30pm on Friday. We require your child to collect their certificate(s) in person because these are legal documents. Alternatively, the person who is collecting them on their behalf must produce permission in writing from them in order for us to release the certificates.
During school holidays the reception will be accessible between the hours of 8.00am and 3.00pm, not including bank holidays or the Christmas week.
Current year 12 students who attend our Sixth Form will be able to collect their certificates from the Sixth Form Pastoral Office during school time.

Sixth form visit to Tudor Conference
As part of their learning in A Level History, a group of our year 12 students travelled to London last week to join the Tudor Conference at Camden Centre. The conference was a wondeful opportunity for our students to hear famous historians John Guy, John Morrill and David Starkey deliver engaging lectures on Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI and Mary I.
Inspired by pupils at Ernehale Juniors
On Wednesday 8th November Mrs Corton and I had the absolute privilege of being invited to the Ernehale Juniors singing assembly. The reason for our visit was to present a number of prizes to the year 6 pupils who entered the ‘Book Blurb’ competition during the Year 6 Open Evening in early October. All pupils who visited during the Open Evening were invited to enter the competition when they visited the library. Mrs Corton then had the pleasure of reading the entries and deciding on an overall winner and the runners up. There were a number of runners up from a variety of local schools including Arno Vale, Arnold View, Coppice and Ernehale, the overall winner was Annabelle from Ernehale. Annabelle won a range of goodies including a book, a pencil, bookmark, chocolate and a £5 gift voucher.
We were both made to feel very welcome by all of the pupils from year 3 to year 6 as they sang us two songs by the Beatles ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ and ‘Penny Lane.
Well done to all of the runners up and the winner of the competition and a huge thank you to all of the students for welcoming Mrs Corton and I to Ernehale Juniors.
Braking Point for Sixth Form
As part of our commitment to give a broad student sixth form experience, we have assemblies given by outside charities and agencies. On Wednesday 1 st November 2017, we were delighted to invite all Year 12 and 13 students to a performance on Young Driver and Passenger Safety - "Braking Point”. The event dramatised the dangers of drink-driving, passenger awareness and responsibilities. Students were encouraged to think about this from several perspectives and were asked to reflect and contribute on how these issues affect them directly.
