At the end of this Spring term we will be sad to say goodbye to five of our teaching staff who are leaving us for pastures new. Miss Carpenter, Mr Gordon, Miss Mayor, Miss Cutler and Miss Glover will be all leaving us to start exciting next chapters in their careers.
Fifty-five Year 10 students from Albany Academy enjoyed a fantastic morning training for their new role as Prefects. They learned about the 5 categories that they were expected to uphold, and spent the first part of the morning taking part in ‘People Bingo’ and an exercise to look at what makes the perfect prefect. The remainder of the morning was spent completing various challenges and scenarios, all of which was arranged and guided by the Head of Year 11, Mrs Staniforth, assisted by Mr Crowther.
The BBC news desk was brought to Albany Academy this term as students took part in the annual BBC School News Report. Year 7 students repeated the success of the previous year’s programme as they developed their very own news broadcast.
Albany Academy Science Faculty hosted a science extravaganza to celebrate British Science Week. The faculty organised various activities and science experiments throughout the week that students could enjoy with the aim of raising awareness of how fun and important science can be. The students also performed their very own ‘Mannequin challenge’.
