TAG awarded Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce prize
Trent Academies Group (TAG) was shortlisted for the Education and Business Partnership Award sponsored by the Careers and Enterprise Company and for the second year running, won the category. The award is given to the educational organisation which works most closely and effectively with local employers. The judges found evidence that Arnold Hill, Farnborough and Rushcliffe consistently go the extra mile to prepare pupils to be “the best employees in the country".
The vision of TAG is to provide every student with the very best education and the chance to “shine brightly” in all that they do. It pledges that students leaving its schools should be “the most employable young people”. The aim of TAG is to nurture aspiration by improving teaching, learning and achievement and by ensuring that the opportunities available to students are of the highest quality and that students are offered the very best preparation for the next stage of their lives.
The award recognises the importance TAG places on Business Links and developing Employability skills in students. At Arnold Hill this happens via the work of the Careers team as well as Faculty Employability projects. Arnold Hill is keen to develop more links with Business so please get in touch if you feel you can help.

Message for those driving children to or from school
If you deliver or collect your child from school in a car then I need to draw your attention to increasing concerns that we have regarding a small number of parents/carers who use their car to deliver or collect their children from school but are not driving their car safely when near our school. Unfortunately we have received a number of complaints from students, parents and local residents, regarding car drivers who stop on zig-zag lines, park up on the pedestrian pavement or stop suddenly in the road or near the zebra crossing to collect or deliver children.
The police have also shared their concerns with us and I ask for anyone who drives their child to or from school to please ensure they are considerate at all times to pedestrians, local residents and other drivers and only stop or park in safe and appropriate places. The safety of our students, your children, is paramount. If we continue to hear of concerns for the safety of our students, particularly at the end of the day, then we will have to consider not allowing cars onto our site until after 3:30 p.m. when the students who are walking home have all left the site.
