The Norfolk Hospice has thanked the students and staff at TNHA for their donation of £560.33 raised through our 'Blue Crew' dress down day. The Hospice is committed to providing care for people in their local community living with life-shortening illnesses and to their carers, family and friends, including bereavement support. Well done all!
The Academy is closed to students on Friday 6th and Friday 20th July
for staff training as previously advised.
Vets, schools, engineering, local business and garages are just some of the places our Year 10 students are visiting for work experience this week.
During this vital phase of their education they will discover more about the ‘world of work’, learning interpersonal skills, good timekeeping etc. and gain an idea of where they may wish to take their future career.
We look forward to hearing more about their adventures when they return next week.
Governors are essential to the successful running of our academy. They play an important role in improving standards and work closely with the Principal to make key decisions affecting the education and well-being of the children. We currently have a vacancy for one Parent Governor on our Academy Committee.
What do Parent Governors do? As a Governor, you can help make sure our academy is run well, pass on your knowledge and experience as you'll understand other parents' hopes and concerns.
Your work as a Governor can include: Monitoring the work of the Principal and Senior Team, reviewing policies and procedures, and making sure they are used correctly & representing the parents’ view in all areas of the academy.
How much time does it take? As a Governor you would need to make time to: - prepare for and attend meetings, attend events such as concerts, open evenings, sports day etc. and visit the academy to monitor progress.
What will I get out of it? Being a Parent Governor means you can play an important role in improving and shaping your children's education. As well as giving you an opportunity to develop new skills and experience.
Please visit the front page of our website at http://www.tnha.org.uk/ where you will find more information and an application form for completion. Completed applications must be with the Clerk to Governors by 4pm on Wednesday 11th July 2018.

TNHA Sports Day 2018 was opened with a ceremony celebrating a World Cup Theme. Colleges each devised performances and Art to celebrate their given countries to include the Icelandic thunderclap, Mexico’s Mariachi music, Brazilian Samba and even Kylie Minogue’s locomotion!
The weather was kind allowing many academy athletic records to be broken and a good time to be had by all.
If you happened to be in the Design Technology area after school you would hear music and the sound of machinery.
Although lessons are over - the Workshop Club is in full swing!
Students are undertaking all manner of projects, using saws, drills, planes etc. to make items such as Dolls’ House (along with miniature furniture), Bird Houses and sets for the Drama Department etc. under the expert guidance of Mr. Vail.
Often covered in paint and sawdust the students can’t think of a better way to enjoy themselves.
Marking National Stand up to Bullying Day, on 13th June, students at the academy were involved in thought provoking activities encouraging others to think about bullying and its long term effects. Students watched the message by Prince William the Duke of Cambridge and saw poignant accounts of the impact on young people their own age.
In order to help promote awareness amongst their peers and encouraging them to be ‘up standees’ rather than bystanders students designed badges highlighting the need to report bullying.
