Letters to Parents
28th May 2021
The onsite education for year 11 and 13 students formally ends at the academy today. We would like to wish them every success in all their future endeavours and want to also remind them that the academy will always be here to offer support and guidance.
This term we have continued to increase our extracurricular programme with a diverse range on offer. These have included football, netball, dodgeball and our latest addition to our sports offering, kinball. It also gives us pleasure to hear our music clubs playing with Jazz Band, Brass Group, Woodwind and Guitars as well as Music Lessons now all on offer. At lunchtimes students can join in drama and Hatton Singers. Extracurricular activities are beneficial for all students as they help to develop confidence and determination. To find out more on how to get involved please visit our website.
We have also recently launched our student led Hatton Buzz magazine. The editorial team is comprised of our senior students with articles being submitted by students across all year groups. Further details and articles can be accessed here.
As we move into the final term of the academic year students will now be able to move around the academy to enable them to access specialist classrooms. To ensure the continued safety of our school community students will be required to wear face coverings in all corridors of the academy (the wearing of face coverings in classrooms will remain optional for students).
To ensure the highest possible academic outcomes, it is important students develop home-school study habits, and we would continue to encourage all students to keep up their efforts. All students are expected to be ‘Ready for Excellence’ with the correct equipment and books with them for every lesson. The equipment includes a pencil case that contains a black/blue pen, red pen, pencil, ruler and scientific calculator as a minimum.
The outlook for the weather for the upcoming half term looks warm dry and sunny. We hope that this will give you all an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and the delights of the Northamptonshire countryside.
