Newsletter April 2015

I know that you will take great pleasure in reading our newsletter which highlights some of the events at the Academy. 

We are building momentum in our promotion of literacy through DEAR (Drop Everything And Read), inviting authors to talk with our students about their books and also through our very first Creative Writing Residential Weekend to the Forest of Dean. Additionally our Creative Writing magazine [sic] is a fantastic opportunity for our very talented writers to showcase their creativity. 

STEM, photography and links with other schools including Braunton Academy in Devon and other activities are increasingly becoming part of what happens at Kingsley Academy. I know that you will actively encourage your child to take part in all that we offer. 

Do check the website for more information and updates of Academy news - I am sure you will be both delighted and impressed by all the opportunities available. 

Have a wonderful Summer and hopefully we will all enjoy some good weather as well as this latest edition of our newsletter.
