A Spring in their Step
A big thank you and well done to all our highly sprung new recruits in Year 8 who eagerly played their part in the Yellow Brick Road workshop with Jean Gascoigne, our school counsellor. It was a great opportunity to learn about new beginnings and make new friendships and everyone greatly enjoyed the activities. Many thanks to Jean for her invaluable input into this programme and, also, for the exceptional counselling facility which is available to all our students. Thanks, also, to the form teachers and especially Mrs Lilleker,( Head of Year 8), for her oversight and guidance. The Academy’s Year 8 pastoral programme provides our students with the best possible guidance, support and direction as they prepare for the many challenges and many decisions of teenage life. Our school counsellor, Jean, is, indeed, available to any student in the school who is seeking advice or guidance.
It’s good to talk.
