Our A2A Course Sixth Form students attended a Leavers’ Assembly to mark their achievements and to celebrate their successful completion of the year. During the assembly anecdotes and successes about the students’ time at the Academy were shared. Students enjoyed reminiscing and seeing a photographic record of their journey. Members of the Sixth Form staff spoke about the students; their tutor this year, Mrs Stowell, gave a moving speech about the qualities they had shown over the year, and they were each awarded certificates to mark their achievement.
The one year A2A course provides a bridge between completing KS4 study and moving onto the next stage, to A Level/BTEC study at Attleborough Sixth Form, or take up an apprenticeship or to begin full time work; it is designed to broaden experience, knowledge and qualifications in order to extend the future options for these students. This year, as in each of the two preceding years, the workplaces where this was carried out included a diverse and exciting range of local organisations and we are exceedingly grateful for the time commitment and support given to our students by these workplaces.
