  • Arabian Nights

    28th March 2014 - Queen Elizabeth's Academy

    Approximately 20 year 7 students were invited to the lakeside Centre at Nottingham University to watch a production of 'Arabian Nights.' The actors engaged with the audience bartering and handing out gold coins while a complicated tale of Kings, thieves and cunning young women unravelled. The funniest character was by far the blind doctor who had the audience in stitches. We will definitely be back for any future theatre performances and it was great to see many actors of secondary school age.

    1. Revise the poems(16) in the anthology  - they have many notes on these

    2  Revise Novel Of Mice and Men -it would be a good idea to read this again; this takes about 5/6 hours.

    3. Revise 2 plays a) A View from the Bridge / Romeo and Juliet

    You should be aiming to use the GCSe Podcasts so that you can listen on your Ipods whilst comiing to and going home from school.

    You should aim to complete at least 1 hour's revision each week,  3 would be better.

    Thank you

  • Rewards Event - Magic Time!

    21st March 2014 - Manor Croft Academy

    On Thursday 20th March over 350 Manor Croft Academy students experienced a unique reward event.

    Sam Fitton kindly agreed to shun the corporate hospitality circuit so he could inspire our students into a career that may not be on their usual ‘maybe I could do’ list. With the art of distraction Sam managed to stun the audience into silence, time and time again.

    The presentation highlighted to our students that making a career out of something you love is certainly possible!
