Year 12 Volunteering Progamme

The Year 12 volunteering programme got off to a brilliant start this September. Building on the experience of last year, Mrs McConnell again worked with Debs Carter from The Lighthouse Charity to organise a weekly hour of volunteering for each Year 12 student. In the first four weeks of term the Sixth Formers underwent an intensive training programme, for which we benefitted from the expertise of members of the Attleborough community from St Edmunds Care Home, The Pavillion, Fairland House and Attleborough Junior. The students have now begun their placements and we would like to thank everyone involved: from the Academy staff members who have provided placements within their subjects, to the community organisations' teams, and to Mr Nevard who has been establishing certification through The Momentum Youth Award, working alongside Voluntary Norfolk for these Sixth Form students.
