  • South Korea exchange 2019

    Published 13/02/19

    Nottingham Academy welcomed a group of students from Ulsan Foreign Language High School in South Korea.

    Our visitors spent three days at Ransom Road campus where they teamed up with our Pupil Parliament to take part in a programme of activities including drama, sport, music and cooking.

    The visit began on Friday 8th February 2019 when our Pupil Parliament introduced themselves and Nottingham Academy.

    They spoke highly of the academy and celebrated the diversity of it, by talking about the variety of nationalities of our pupils.

    Visitors then took part in a quiz about how well they know Britain's history, as well as their knowledge on Nottingham. They scored very highly in all the quizzes.

    Activities based around the British culture and Nottingham's Robin Hood were then held.

    Ms Wilkins, who is a SEN Learning Mentor at Nottingham Academy, handed out traditional British sweets to her group, who watched the Mr Bean film & listened to English music, such as Stormzy.

    To finish the day, some of our pupils performed dance and drama routines.

    On Monday 11th February, our visitors and Pupil Parliament took part in team building and sport activities where they had to communicate to each other non-verbally.

    They also hosted a tea party where they served scones they had made during a cookery session and. They served this with jam, cream and tea.

    In the afternoon our visitors gave a presentation on the history of South Korea and helped our pupils make name tags in Korean letters.

    On the final day our visitors took part in an art activity and a music workshop where they played a range of instruments.

  • Charities deliver key message about knife crime

    Published 30/01/19

    Charities Key4Life and Epic Partners visited Nottingham Academy as part of a programme to educate youngsters about the impact of knife crime and violence.

    The two charities delivered a presentation based around development, resilience and respect to year 9 and 10 pupils at the Nottingham Academy Greenwood campus and Ransom Road campus.

    Key4Life helps reduce youth reoffending through rehabilitation and Epic Partners, is a community-based charity, which delivers diversionary activities to enrich the lives of young people.

    Louis Donald, Associate Assistant Principal and Safeguarding Officer at Nottingham Academy, said: “The powerful presentation included personal testimonies, music and video.

    “A small group of privileged pupils were given the opportunity to complete smaller group workshops with the team of presenters.”

    The individual workshops explored how drill music drives youth culture, including gang associations and violence, the cause and effect of gang and knife crime and personal decision making.

    Next month, some pupils will go on a short residential trip to Paddington Farm in Somerset, as part of a continuation of this programme.

    The pupils will be introduced to an exciting range of experiences to support the development of team building, leadership responsibility and other essential life skills.

    There will also be a series of workshops relating to the risks of negative association, incorporated alongside traditional sports activities.

  • Free bagels for all

    Published 22/01/19

    Pupils at The Nottingham Academy are being offered a free healthy breakfast each morning.

    Bagels are served to pupils before they start their school day in a bid to boost academic performance.

    The academy has joined the government's National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.

    The aim of the programme is to improve the pupils’ concentration because research shows at least half a million children in the UK arrive at school each day too hungry to learn.

    The breakfast aims to give pupils energy, protein, vitamins and minerals, and will be low in sugar, salt and fat.
