YEAR 7 CAMP
During September and October over 85% of the new Year 7's took part in their residential stay at Edwinstowe Youth Hostel.
The experience has been created to allow the students to get to know each other better so that they can support each other more in school. During the 3 days, students built dens in the forest, orienteered around a course, designed fashion using bin liners, showed off a talent that they are proud of and went on a night time ghost walk.
The comments from the students are excellent and include quotes such as 'It was amazing' or 'Can we go again?'. ... See MoreSee Less

JESSICS WILLMOTT'S SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME TO INDIA
Sutton Community Academy is proud to be a WE School.
WE works in partnership with the international WE Charity to spread the message that together people can make a huge positive difference to the lives of others.
The WE Charity and the academy believe that: anyone can make a difference and small actions can lead to a significant change and that if we take part in social action this not only helps others but develops who we are too. By working with the WE Charity, Sutton Community Academy inspires and empowers its students to ‘change the world’ one step at a time. The academy is active in supporting both local, national and international charities.
As a result of the academy’s consistent community spirit one student from the school has been given the opportunity work more closely with the WE Charity. Jessica Willmott was selected to participate in the WE Charity’s trip to India where she travelled with 29 other students from across the UK and 4 staff from the WE Charity to experience the life of some of the people whom the charity is supporting. Jess took part in community projects and learnt about the lives of the local people. She was chosen for the scholarship programme, funded by Virgin Atlantic, because of her relentless social action throughout her 7 years at Sutton Community Academy.
During the sixth form she was a WE School Ambassador and an activist for social change. Jess recently returned from India and led assemblies with all year groups at the school to share her experience and to inspire others to follow her lead where she was a positive role model to others. Jess told the students at the academy that:
“My time in India helped me to better understand the world and the people within it. From playing games with young children, to digging away at the mud during monsoon season. I was able to experience the best of times and the worst. I was able to learn that even though, to us it may seem like hard life, it is not a bad life.”
The school wish Jess well in the next part of her life’s journey to university.
Last year the academy and its students pledged to raise funds in order to build a school in a WE Village, in Kenya. These communities do not have access to education and so this is considered to be a very important step towards empowering these people through learning. The academy needs to raise £5,800 funds to secure this build. The school will continue to raise awareness and funds for this cause.

Thank you Sutton Community Academy. Or, as many still remember you as, 'Sutton Centre'. I've been at University just over two weeks and I've had a lot to consider since getting here. You have given me the confidence to try, the initiative to want more, the vocabulary to say 'yes' and, most importantly, the opportunity to better myself. Now with the tools you have given me and the drive I installed within myself, I am going do the most I can do. The only place I am willing to go is up and it's thanks to you I am aware of this. So thank you, again, for teaching me not just the syllabus but for teaching me how to be the greatest I could ever be.
Wow my big lady ❤️ I’m so proud of you, xxx

UPDATE FROM THE ACTING PRINCIPAL
Almost two full weeks back and I am delighted at the start we have made to this academic year. Students are showing excellent attitudes to learning and we are delighted that two of our teachers Aimee Lupton and Judith Graves received the SSAT Lead Practitioner Accreditation awards and Jessica Teal will be presenting at the SSAT Annual Conference this year.
I visited Year 7 camp on Monday night and last night to see the students who were having a great time. The students were very enthusiastic and happy about their start to school and pointed out that they felt safe at our school, were delighted with the canteen choices and the challenging but exciting lessons. I would like to thank other staff members who are visiting during the evening to support staff and students.
As a reminder our YEAR 5/6 Open Evening takes place next Wednesday 26th September from 5.00 - 7.00. We have received numerous applications but there are still some places available so please come along or pass on the message regarding this event.
There are numerous events taking place soon such as the Year 11 Careers Event tomorrow, a Year 8 trip to Castleton and the Sixth Form Careers Trip.
Communication will follow soon regarding the next Parents/Carers focus group which hopefully we can arrange in October so that we can continue on our journey to outstanding together. ... See MoreSee Less
