Collection of GCSE Certificates

Calling all pupils from the Lynn Grove Academy class of 2019 – it is time to collect your GCSE Certificates. You will need these certificates in the future so be sure to come and collect them and then keep them safe. You will be surprised how often you will be asked for them in later life and if you lose them you will have to go through a complicated and expensive process to get replacements.

Collection of Exam Certificates dates:

Thursday 5th & Friday 6th December 2019 15:00 – 16:30

If you cannot make these times, please make an appointment with the Exams Office on 01493 660245.

Certificates cannot be given to anyone other than the person named on the certificate unless the person named has provided written authorisation for a responsible adult to collect on their behalf.
In line with JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) rules, we can only keep certificates for one year after which they will be disposed of.

Art and Photography work can be collected on these evenings but please be sure to bring in bags to aid you in carrying this work.

We look forward to seeing you.

Key Concepts – Structure

Our Year 7 pupils experienced their second Key Concept Day recently. These special days are running across our whole trust and are aimed to help children understand the key concepts that underpin our existence. They spent all day learning about structure – what it is and how it permeates every aspect of life and the things they are learning in school. They all engaged with great enthusiasm and produced amazing models from paper straws. Thanks you to everyone who helped planning, organising and running this imprtant event.

Author visits Lynn Grove

Last week we were fortunate to have published author, Alexander Gordon Smith visit and deliver a talk and masterclass to some of our year 9 students on creative writing. Students are taking part in the neaco-funded project, ‘Under Cover Writer’ and will have the opportunity to be published and celebrate their achievements at the University of East Anglia at the end of the academic year.

Many thanks to Mrs Bowles for hosting in our fabulous library, to neaco (Network for East Anglian Collaborative Outreach) for offering the opportunity and of course to Alexander Gordon Smith who also stayed after the masterclass to meet with students, sign books and talk to them about his books and adventures. You’re welcome back anytime!
