Did you know that the library is available to use before and after school and break and lunchtimes to complete homework or coursework? There is always a friendly member of staff and plenty of computers to give you a hand.

Attendance Winners!

Attendance and punctuality are so important both for school life and for life when students have left school, that’s why Bedlingtonshire Academy celebrates attendance success when we can.

Each week the highest attending tutor group receives the ‘Attendance Trophy’ in assembly. The tutor group gets to keep and display the trophy until the following week when the next highest achieving attendance tutor group will receive the award.

Last weeks winners were KGN

Well done!

Year 7 Citizenship

Today in Citizenship we are working on pressure groups and the task is ‘We Love Bedlington’.

Students are working in groups to write a script and design some artwork that they can present to the class.
Groups 1, 2 and 3 will be aiming their pressure group towards young people, trying to convince them to look after their town.
Groups 4, 5 and 6 will be aiming their pressure group towards the council, convincing them that they need to do more to make sure these things (vandalism) do not happen and that people who do them are punished.
The students were so engaged in this and will present their ideas next week.

The students had a great morning and are looking forward to the next session.

Year 12/13 Parents Evening

The 11 January saw Bedlington Academy hosting their Year 12/13 parents evening. The evening was a great opportunity for parents and students to focus on their areas of development over the next few weeks and achieve the best they can. The evening was well attended.

Thanks to all the parents and carers that came.

Transition Youth Club Trip

On Wednesday 20 December students from the Transition youth clubs at Stakeford and Guidepost took to the ice for a fun filled evening at the Centre for Life Newcastle. It was a quick change of uniform as the young people needed to be at the church hall for 4:30 to give us plenty of time to get there for our time slot on the ice. The young people had an hour on the ice followed by a cup of hot chocolate and a chocolate chip cookie. The trip was funded by Choppington Parish Council from their small grants fund and the young people would like to thank them for their generous donation.
