In the afternoon, the students met with an apprentice at HMRC where they discussed how they applied for the position and what their job entailed.

Remembrance Day at Sutton Community Academy
Today the whole academy gathered for a 2 minutes silence at 11am. It was humbling to see all our young people out holding poppies they decorated with messages of respect, names of local heroes and their thanks.
The front of the academy building has been decorated with these poppies and can been seen from outside the main entrance. ... See MoreSee Less
It is impossible to say just how moved I am to see this from our youngsters. As an ex Royal Engineer of 22 years service, and having a father who served in WW2, at El Alamein, in the Middle East and in Italy, it is truly heartwarming to know that the service of our honourable dead and the living is remembered in this way. THANK YOU ALL!
So proud to see this from my previous school, being a serving soldier it’s a great honour to see young students being apart of the 100 year anniversary. Thank you to everyone who took part and raised money.
Brilliant, was nice to see my son leave for school this morning in his boys brigade uniform and proud to wear a poppy.
Aww that's amazing!!! 😍

Revise Right/Parent's Evening at Sutton Community Academy
Last night we were delighted with a high attendance of Year 11 and Year 13 students and parents/carers for the Revise Right event. Thank you to those parents/carers who were able to attend. Those that could not make it will receive revision materials soon for our students. Advice on revision techniques was presented by the Heads of English, Science and Maths specific to their subjects such as the use of PiXL Apps. Our Lead Practitioner for memory retention and recall presented generic education revision theories and guidance. Students and parents/carers then met with their subject teachers in preparation for upcoming mock exams.
Feedback from parents/carers was as follows:
• The evening was excellent.
• It was really informative, helpful and staff looked very smart.
• All the teachers we saw were very knowledgeable about my son's progression, what he needed to do to get the best grade possible and offered extra help where needed. You have staff to be proud of!
• Brilliant night, really informative.
• School keeps getting better.
• Well done and thank you for tonight.
• Good to have your careers advisor present tonight to discuss Sixth Form. ... See MoreSee Less
