The Mathematics staff at Aston Manor Academy are keen to provide after school A-level revision sessions to Year 13 students every Tuesday in room D26 from 3:15pm to 4:00pm. This is to ensure that students are better prepared for their mathematics examinations in June 2013. Of course, it is important to point out that these sessions are merely supplementary and do not replace the student’s own preparation at home.

So much has been going on in PSHE lessons so far this academic year, with some fantastic visitors coming in to school to work with our students. We have so far had workshops focused on online bullying, exploitation and self-esteem, violent extremism and legal highs. Over 700 students have so far benefitted from these workshops since September, which aim to build on what they learn as part of the current PSHE curriculum.
These workshops have not only been a great success and really beneficial for the students, we have also received some really positive feedback from our visitors who have stated that:
‘The students have been a delight to work with’, ‘Were really positive and engaged throughout’ and ‘So well behaved and so helpful it was refreshing!’
Let’s hope the spring term will be just as exciting!!!!
‘Tapestry’ violent extremism workshops with year 9 from the Playhouse.
‘Legal highs’ workshops with year 10’s from Urban Heard.
‘EUBully’ workshops with year 7’s from Spectacle Theatre & ‘Girls EM’ self-esteem workshops with year 9 from City United.
Congratulation to Samina and Alwayne for a beautiful performance at Aston Parish Church for their annual Community Carol Service. It was a lovely occasion with all the local schools taking part. Both students received many compliments about their performance afterwards. Well Done!
