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.

GCSE Results 2019

On 22 August 2019 our Year 11 leavers came in one more time to collect their results. After a lot of anticipation there was plenty to celebrate.

An impressive 80% of students achieved at least a grade four in English, while 68% achieved at least a grade four in Maths.

Mrs Mobbs said: “We are incredibly pleased with the results achieved and the progress made by our GCSE students this year. They’ve worked incredibly hard to get the best grades they can, and we wish them all the very best for the future.

We’re particularly pleased with the very strong results achieved in academic, creative and vocational subjects, showing the strengths we have across the curriculum and underlining our determination to enable students to “discover what you’re good at”. These results demonstrate the dedication of Lynn Grove teachers to helping our students realise their potential.”

Third Key Concept Day

Our Year 7 pupils recently took part in their third CET Key Concept Day. The Key Concept Days are organised by our Creative Education Trust HQ and are supported by a practicing designer. The Key Concept days are devised to enable the students to develop their understanding of the individual concepts and then use them to connect their knowledge. This time they explored the concept of ‘Meaning’ by creating drawings and shapes. The results were fantastic and the children had a great time throughout the day. To find out more about the key concepts have a look at this video.

Year 7 Easter Egg Hunt

Our Year 7 pupils know their school pretty well by now, and this stood them in good stead today, 1 April 2019, when they all took part in an Easter egg hunt. Covering almost every corner of the school grounds they had to identify places and features which they did with great enthusiasm. All were rewarded with a chocolate egg for their efforts.

Maths challenge success

We’re very impressed with the results of our young mathematicians who took part in the Intermediate Maths Challenge recently. Our pupils achieved 15 Bronze, 7 Silver and 4 Gold certificates! The latter four, pupils from year 9, 10 and 11, automatically qualified for the European round this month – a fantastic achievement.
Well done to all the pupils who took part and to Mr Farman for inspiring them with his enthusiasm for all things Maths and homemade cake.

Second Year 11 Parents’ Consultation Evening

Following feedback from our parents we have introduced a second Parents’ Consultation Evening for Year 11 pupils to give you a clear picture on your child’s progress and what they need to do in order to fully prepare for their final GCSE examinations.
The event is on Thursday, 4 April 2019 5 – 8 pm, and pupils should attend this important event in school uniform.
