  • Drama Club - Aladdin Trouble

    22nd June 2016 - Wainwright Primary Academy

    As you know, some of the children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6) have been attending the Drama Club each Monday with Miss Robinson and Miss Deakin, preparing for a performance of Aladdin.


    It is with regret that we have to inform you that due to staffing changes, the performance will not be able to go ahead in July as originally planned. The amount of work still to be covered in preparing for the performance is not achievable in the timescale available.


    This will mean that there will no longer be a Drama Club

  • JWA at the Shine Media Awards

    22nd June 2016 - John Whitgift Academy
    On Tuesday 21st June three students from the JWA Journal Editorial Team were invited down to the Stationer's Hall in London to receive an award for the school's work on the newspaper.
    We were up against a large number of schools from around the country - all of whom had fantastic publications. However, we were highly commended for having the best newspaper and for having the best front cover of a newspaper.
    It was a great experience and we hope to be nominated again next year!
  • Hatfield Water Park - Year 5 annual visit

    22nd June 2016 - Hatfield Woodhouse Primary School

    As per Hatfield Woodhouse tradition, Year 5 visited the Hatfield water park this week!

    The aim of the visit was to focus on personal achievement and team-working skills.

    The children participated in high-rope and raft building activities.  They worked really hard and pushed themselves out of their comfort zones - physically and mentally.

    It was noted as being the "Best school trip ever!" - so it is safe to say that it was a success!

These include the results of the recent Ofsted inspection and the move to a fantastic new building, both of which would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of both our pupils and our staff.
