Leavers Assembly - Friday 29th June
To support students travelling from College Induction Events, we have amended the times of our Leavers Event.
Students should arrive from 3.45pm and go through to St Luke's church with the Leavers Assembly starting at 4pm.
This will be followed by a BBQ in the canteen and quad area which will finish at 5.30pm.
(Students do not need to stay until 5.30pm and may leave after the Leavers Assembly if they prefer.)
Students are not required to wear uniform but may bring a shirt to wear if they want to participate in shirt signing.
World Book Day 2017
Ark Charter Academy launched our new drive for literacy today with World Book Day 2017. Staff across the academy dressed up as their favourite book characters from Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox to Michael Bond’s Paddington Bear to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Science housed some of Dodie Smith’s 101 Dalmatians hiding from Cruella de Ville and there were a number of sightings of Where’s Wally? in the Humanities Department. Throughout the day there was a hubble bubble of intrigue as students found out who was who and which book they are from. A huge number of students took part in a competition to win £25 worth of book vouchers. Ark Charter Academy’s brand new Word Up! programme will be bringing a whole host of exciting events to celebrate the joy of reading and next up is our Scholastic Book Fair. Students have been and will be receiving book tokens to spend between 21-27 March each afternoon in Ark Charter Academy Library. These books are at incredibly discounted prices starting from £2 (only £1 with students’ FREE World Book Day token). See you there!
