Academy Closed due to severe weather conditions

Dear Parents/Carers

Following an inspection of the site, the decision has been made to close the academy(Monday 11/12/17). This is due to a significant amount of snow on paths and carparks. We feel the site  and local roads are  unsafe for pupils, parents and staff.

We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience but hope the early notice will help parents make appropriate arrangements. 

We aim to be open as usual on Tuesday 12/12/17

Humanutopia at Bet365 Stadium

We took 32 Year 10 students to a Humanutopia event at the Bet365 Stadium (in association with Higher Horizons and Business in the Community) on November 1st, and our students worked with the Humanutoia team, local business people and students from other High Schools looking at their personal situations and how they could take ownership of their lives in order to achieve their potential.

Alpha Christmas Card Competition


A Christmas Card competition for all academies/schools within the Trust was held after half term. We had many entries which made the judging quite difficult. The judging took place on Monday 13th November by Sarah Robinson (CEO for the Trust) and Carol Jones (Chair of the Trust).

Two designs were selected, Sienna Harrington Year 5 from Maple Court Academy and Evan Phokeerdoss Year 7 from The Excel Academy.

The two winners were given a £30 Intu Potteries Voucher and were taken to see their card produced at AJB Reprographics in Fenton.

Well done to all involved.

Student London Visit

Last week students from Alpha Academies Trust attended the Houses of Parliament/Buckingham Palace/Downing St as part of our trust Government and politics work. Students from all academies were a credit to our Trust. Their conduct was superb around Parliament and outside Buckingham Palace where they saw Royal family members leave the palace, as well as inside during the Education sessions learning about democracy, voting and the importance of their voice.

Thanks to Mrs Sherwin (Discovery Academy), Mr Harvey (Excel Academy) and Mr Kumar (Birches Head Academy) for their support.

Mr Brandrick
