Very many thanks to everyone who took part in our 'non uniform day' and paid a £1 to the charity. Great effort!
Nestled amongst the books down at the local town library recently, was a wonderful and rather ‘tasty’ looking art exhibition of cakes (the non-edible kind) made by our Year 7 students.
During their study of the American Artist, Wayne Thiebaud, best known for his paintings of food and everyday objects, the students produced their own versions.
They learnt how to design and construct a 3D ‘cake’ using mediums such as paper mache, tissue paper, beads, clay etc. The colourful and incredibly realistic looking exhibits were admired by visitors and showed off the talents of our young group of artists.
Drama students eagerly jumped aboard our mini bus bound for the Theatre Royal, Bury St. Edmunds, to see the impressive new production of the famous comedy ‘Bouncers’.
Written by Jon Godber, the play uses monologues and flashbacks to give insight into its characters who struggle with the moral dilemmas that arise from their job, as well as the disillusionment that this causes towards their culture.
The students in Year 10 will use this play as part of their GCSE Drama Study Course.
This quote found in one or our corridor encourages students to be determined and focused to achieve success.
Art students at the academy were lucky enough to visit the Curwen Print Study Centre in Cambridge recently. Established as an educational Fine Art Printmaking charity in the late 1990s the Centre has established a reputation for excellence in its field. Our budding artists worked on two different printing techniques being dry point and lino printing with the theme being ‘natural forms’. The work they completed will make up part of the examination coursework.
Our budding entrepreneurs met local businesswoman, Jane Clark, owner of The Old Art Room in Swaffham when she kindly agreed to visit the academy.
Along with an engaging presentation Jane answered questions from our students studying business and shared the fact that ‘being passionate about what you are doing’ is a major part of success.

Making a splash at the recent European Forces Swimming League Divisional Competition, held in Wuppertal Germany, was TNHA student Joshua Barber. He competed in 5 races in the 13-15 years’ category, 100 butterfly, 200IM, 100 Free, 200 Medley relay and 200 Free relay.
His team the Lakenheath Barracudas placed 2nd out of 7 international competing teams (just missing victory). What a great effort!
