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.
Twelve Year 10 students enjoyed a visit to one of Britain’s leading manufacturing companies at the start of the Spring term. The students visited Leyland Trucks, with the aim to find out more about careers and apprenticeship opportunities the manufacturing giant had to offer. The visit was also used to inspire and motivate the young students to think about their future careers.
