The Excel Academy

Welcome to the Excel Academy

Message from the Principal

Welcome to The Excel Academy website. I have updated this message due to the current COVID 19 situation. All information and updates for families are included in the Closure Information section on this site.

Most of our current learning continues online and our fantastic students and staff have adapted remarkably well to this change. We promote the attributes of being;

pride
It is obvious that the key attribute of resilience has very much been tested during this challenging time – a challenge which I am proud to say we are overcoming.

We are starting the move to some normality with some significant changes to our Academy site to ensure everyone’s health and safety. These changes very much focus on social distancing and hygiene guidelines. The Academy looks quite different now. In line with government guidance, Year 10 have been returning to lessons recently I am pleased to report that nearly all students have returned for support with their learning and wellbeing. 

We continue to send out or ‘hand deliver’ our Principal’s awards to reward those students working hard on their online lessons every day. I continue to be inspired by our brilliant students who are still making great progress in these strange circumstances. We are very proud of them all.

I hope to welcome you in more normal circumstances in the very near future

Mr D Bishop
Principal

Alpha Academies Trust Announcement

From the 1st June 2020, the Government has requested schools to begin welcoming back students, alongside the full time provision they are offering to priority groups. Alpha Academies Trust has responded by implementing detailed risk assessments to ensure it is safe to do so.

Click here to read the letter from the CEO and Chair of the Trust detailing the outcome of these risk assessments, and how the Trust intends to address the new Government guidance.

Alpha Academies Trust has also made guidance available for parents, detailing what measures will be implemented to ensure a safe learning environment when children return.

The Government have cancelled all public examinations for 2020, and staff have followed DfE guidelines whilst assessing the hard work completed by children to support a GCSE grade that will be awarded in the same way as previous years.

TO YEAR 11 - It's time to say goodbye, for now - but do keep in touch!

Today is your last official day as Excel Academy students. However you will ALWAYS be Excel students!

Events have meant that you have not experienced the normal final term at The Academy - which is so very sad.

Your Prom, which was due to take place this evening, is only postponed and we will look to rearrange a date once it is possible to do so. We are also considering arrangements for Exam Results Day which will be finalised once we have received official guidance.

Year 11 2020, we have been privileged to see you mature into fantastic young adults who we are all very proud of you. It is a pity that you have missed the opportunity to take your exams (no long hours of revision though 😉, so some positives!) but we are very hopeful that you will receive the grades you deserve for your hard work and effort during your time here.

A HUGE thank you for your significant contribution over the past 5 years, especially to those of you who represented the Academy and to those of you who took on leadership roles and gave up your time to support staff and other students, we would not have operated successfully without you, you were that important!

So, no more ‘silent changeovers’ or ‘get your pencil case and planner on your desk’ - hopefully our values of Pride and Respect will stay with you as you move forward in your lives.

The very best wishes to you ALL, we will miss each and everyone of you and we hope to see you all soon.

Take Care

Mr Bishop and all of the Staff

The Duchess of Cambridge has lead an online assembly for the Oak National Academy during which she spoke about the importance of mental wellbeing among children. The theme of the Duchess’ assembly is ‘spread a little kindness’, which encourages children to explore ways in which they can show kindness and recognise the benefits of kindness to others.
