Headteachers message - The last leg..
First of all, a huge thanks to all those parents that turned up on Tuesday to our Numeracy Evening for new Year 7's starting in September. The feedback from the evening has been very positive and we hope everyone enjoyed the opportunity and challenges that took place.
Looking ahead to next week, our Year 10 students go out on Work Experience all week. Work Related Learning is a key part of a students journey at Lutterworth Academies Trust and our newly appointed Assistant Headteacher, Miss Raywood, will be overseeing this as part of her role from the upcoming academic year.
In other appointment news, Mrs Thornton (nee Bates) as been appointed as SENDCo for the Trust from this September. Mrs Thornton has been at the Trust for 17 years and we wish her all the best with this new responsibility. In the initial phase she will be working closely with Mrs Hadley, our current SENDCo, as the transition progresses.
As we progress into the last weeks of this academic year can I remind you of the last Parental Engagement Evening on Monday 18th June and the fund-raising Colour Run (see notice below) on Saturday 7th July. In fact, check out all the 'upcoming events' dates in the section below - especially those all important Results Day timings for Year 11 & Year 13!
all the best

National singing success for Mr Lubkowski!
Over the May Half Term our Music Teacher Mr Lubkowski competed in the British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS for short!) Quartet contest in Harrogate with his Quartet 'The Lockmsiths'. We are thrilled to say that he and his Quartet won the competition, with the second highest ever score! Mr Lubkowski also directs a Barbershop Chorus 'Tuxedo Junction' based out of Earl Shilton in Leicestershire, and they were placed 8th in the UK in the Chorus contest, winning the coveted Small Chorus Award!
There have also been opportunities afforded to our students in the world of Barbershop Music, with our student Quartet 'Diminished Fifth' finishing 6th in the Youth Quartet contest last year, and Mr Lubkowski is hoping to give more students then chance to hear and perform Acapella and Barbershop music, both boys and girls - so watch this space for more info!
