Year 7 students and teachers at Albany Academy this week were proud to hand a cheque of £1155 to Derian House children’s hospice. The Year 7 students at Albany had organised a Christmas fayre in December, which was attended by all members of the school community.
Between the 6-9 October Head Girl, Morgan Newton and Deputy Head Girl Niamh Holmes, accompanied by Mrs Chatterley, visited the battlefields of World War One. The school had be invited to send representatives as part of a national memorial during the centenary of key battles from the war.
Albany Academy received a major endorsement from Ofsted this week, when the school inspectorate published the outcomes of the recent inspection.
This week, Albany Academy showed solidarity for those people across the world suffering injustice by supporting Amnesty International.
Staff at Albany Academy have been recognised for their commitment to supporting STEM.
