With the hottest day of the year and temperatures raising above 30 degrees, the community competitiveness came to the force and it was a great day topped by the excitement generated by a student tug of war and relay finale.
Our students were hosts at the Heartstone project 'Descendants of All Worlds' exhibition launch at Whitechapel station.

The students were such fantastic ambassadors that they have been asked to help launch the next exhibition in City Hall!
As you may be aware, the National Union of Teachers are intending to take strike action on Tuesday 5th July 2016. Members of academy staff recognise the importance of delivering teaching and learning and no one has taken the decision to support the strike lightly.
We recognise how important it is for you to be able to make your own plans, and so the management team has been assessing what impact the strike will have on our academy. No students are to be sent to the academy that day, as there will be no provision available to look after them. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
After discussions with staff and careful consideration of all possible options, the academy will be closed to all students on Tuesday 5th July 2016.
