Oscar Crowned Under-16 Boys' Champion 2017
It has been another exceptional term for budding golf star Oscar Bartram. In May he was selected to play in the Under-18 English Schools Boys’ County Championships in St Ives, Cambridgeshire. He finished 7th overall with the team ending in 2nd place; a great result.
After winning the Nottinghamshire Schools Under-16 title, Oscar played in the Midlands Schools Final at Stratford Park Golf. This then led to an invitation to attend the National Schools Final at The Kendleshire Golf Club in Bristol.
More success followed in July at Blackwell Golf Club, Bromsgrove as Oscar played in the 2017 Midland Boys Amateur Championship Final. He was presented with the trophy for winner of the Under-16s Boys category and was also placed 2nd overall with only a 2 shot difference. This was a huge achievement in a field of Under-18 boys from across the Midlands.
We are proud to report that on Monday all of Oscar’s hard work and dedication paid off as he was crowned the English Schools Under-16 Boys’ Champion 2017. We agree with Oscar’s mum and dad that this is truly a “fabulous result”!

Year 11 GCSE Results Day Thursday 24th August 2017
Year 11 GCSE results are available for students to collect on Thursday 24th August at 8am in the A block hall.
Any student who cannot make results day can send a friend/relative with a permission letter to collect the results on their behalf. It must state “I (student name) give my permission to (name of person collecting) to collect my GCSE/BTEC results on my behalf”. Students are asked to print their name in capital letters and sign it at the bottom. Alternatively they can bring in a stamped addressed envelope to the Exams Office before the end of the summer term. Those with a stamped addressed envelope will be posted out on results day.
If your son/daughter wishes to have a subject marking reviewed, or a copy of their script back, I have attached a consent form that your son/daughter must fill in with a list of exam board services they offer with their fees and the deadlines they must be back to the Exams Office by. If they need further guidance they can speak to a subject specific teacher or alternatively with myself on results day.
If you have any further queries then please do not hesitate to contact me.
Year 10 Explore the History of Justice
As part of our GCSE Crime & Punishment course, our year 10 students visited the iconic National Justice Museum which is based in Nottingham's historic Shire Hall and County Gaol. During the day everyone had the opportunity to take part in a criminal case role play and visit the interactive museum tour.
Our students really enjoyed the visit and asked some fantastic questions. An excellent day and a great introduction to one of our Y11 GCSE topics!
Year 12 Students Excel at Work Experience
In the first week of July, 95 of our year 12 students headed out of school for a week to complete their work experience. Many students had fabulous placements which will help prepare them for their future careers.
We were delighted to hear about the contribution two of our students made on their placement with one of our host employers. “It has been an absolute pleasure having Charlie and Fraser here and I hope we have taught them a bit about business insurance alongside what it is like to work in a lively office environment. Both Fraser and Charlie are a credit to your Academy and have an excellent attitude. They have helped with both menial and important tasks, without question or issue and have been a great asset to us in their time here. If you want us to host future students with similar attitudes in the future please do not hesitate to contact me.”
