Later Life Party 2018

Grandparents and local residents were invited along to Lynn Grove to enjoy an afternoon of festive cheer. Our guests were treated to Prize Bingo, a raffle and a Christmas trivia quiz. They enjoyed music and singing from our talented Music students and choir. Pupils served home-made sausage rolls and mince pies prepared by our budding year 7 and 8 chefs. The event was hosted by our year 11 Health and Social Care students, who did their teacher proud by brilliantly demonstrating the Care Values they had previously learnt about in class.
It was wonderful to see different generations all enjoying just being together and having a lovely time, and from the positive comments we have received a really good time was had by all.


Collection of GCSE certificates

Calling all pupils in the Lynn Grove Academy class of 2018 – It’s 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 very safely. 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

Thursday 6th & Friday 7th December 2018 15:00 – 16:30

If these times are not convenient, please make an appointment with the Exams Office on 01493 660245.
Certificates cannot be given to anyone other than the pupil without their written authorisation.
In line with JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) rules, we can only keep certificates for one year after which they will be disposed of. We look forward to seeing you.

A bookish tree

It’s 4 weeks until Christmas so we are beginning to get into the spirit. An unusual tree has sprung up in our reception made out of more than 100 books unifying Christmas cheer and the joy of reading. And there will be plenty of that since there are still over 16900 books left in out library.
Extra bonus – no needles!

Girls’ rugby

Year 10 girls impressed with their determination and sportswomanship at Wymondham College shortly before half-term when they took part in a Rugby Development Tournament.

Our choir had a great time on Wednesday, 31 October 2018 taking part in the High School’s Choir Festival organised by Norfolk Music Hub.
