Principal’s Blog 21st July – End of Academic YearJuly 21st, 2017
End of Academic Year
As we reach the end to the academic year we can go into the summer break with confidence knowing that as students, staff, parents and governors we continue to do all we can to support our young people working towards qualifications they deserve. We know that we have gone far beyond this and supported our students in developing their Character, Confidence and Creativity, and crucially we supported each other to gain fulfilment by playing a positive role in our community. We know that we all gain more by giving more.
Although our hopes are high, the truth is in these turbulent times we don’t know what the exam outcomes will be; no one has yet seen what a Level 9 Maths GCSE looks like. We do know that good, bad or indifferent we will respond as an academy and as individuals with a will to make the most of what we have and a commitment to improve further.
On Thursday 13th July our Governors voted in principle to explore formally the creation of a Multi Academy Trust with Shenley Brook End School. This means that our journey of improvement will not only be with the staff, students, parents and governors at Hazeley, but also with those at Shenley Brook End School.
This partnership will be a key theme in the years ahead as two of Milton Keynes best schools unite in their collective mission of working together to grow a vibrant community of exceptional people. We hope that in the fullness of time we will be joined on this journey by other local schools that share this vision and our values.
Partnership with parents is at the centre of our Hazeley ethos. When we return we will be running a number of open mornings where visitors can enjoy the opportunity to see the academy in action; the visitors decide exactly where they want to go and what they want to see. I feel privileged to be the Principal at an academy where we have the confidence to be so transparent.
Although we enjoy in the region of 1000 applications for our 240 places in Year 7 we do hold an in-year waiting list for all year groups and these open days also create an opportunity for new and prospective parents to find out more about Hazeley.
Term and student return dates can be found HERE.
I hope that you have a lovely break, enjoy the extra time with your children and I look forward to seeing you all again in the new academic year.
