Letters from considerably warmer climes have arrived for our students studying Spanish.
They are looking forward to continuing close links with their pen friends from Seville and learning more about life in that region from their peers.
One particular area of the academy has been buzzing with the sound of various tools and equipment as students designed and made door signs as part of the resistant materials part of their course. There really were some great ideas produced.
The following trips are being offered by our Drama Department:-
Bouncers (27th Feb) – should be attended by all Year 10 students studying Drama as part of their Exam coursework

Hopefully your New Year resolutions are going well and you can award yourself a little treat. A perfect example are some chocolate cupcakes made in our Food Technology area and taken home to celebrate a family birthday.
This quick and easy recipe is as follows:-
60g good quality (70%) cocoa powder.
4 to 5 tablespoons boiling hot water
175g unsalted butter, softened
175g caster sugar
120g self-raising flour
1 level teaspoon baking powder
Bake at 150 degrees for 10-15 mins).
There was certainly some creative learning happening in one of our classrooms as students learned about the different religions in the world.
Students made a piñata full of facts, cooked various dishes and made bunting. What an interesting and inspiring way to learn!
Stage curtains opened and Christmas truly arrived at TNHA with an original production of ‘The Enchanted Wood’. The theme communicated the magic of the season and featured many of our favourite pantomime characters, musical acts and stories from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
The show involved over 65 students and many more in the preparation of sets, lighting, sound etc. It can certainly be said that they ‘brought the house down’.
