There is nothing better than testing yourself to make your knowledge stick. Last week, pupils in Years 8 to 11 correctly answered over 140,000 questions on Tassomai! Year 7 will be joining in this week, so we are looking forward to seeing that number go up.
Will we make it to 200,000 this week?
Last year, LGA came second in the whole country for number of questions answered correctly, it is looking very good for this year too.
It was lovely to see so many of our year 11 pupils on Thursday, 20 August, as they came to collect their GCSE results. There were tears of joy from pupils and their parents and it was also great to catch up with everyone and hear more about their plans for the future. Principal Alison Mobbs commented ‘We have so many reasons to be proud of this year group. They embraced the spirit of Lynn Grove Academy from the very beginning. They are a group of hard working, determined and enthusiastic young people and these excellent GCSE results reflect that. They have supported each other magnificently, were exceptional role models for our younger pupils and will go on to achieve highly in their next stage.’ We were joined on the morning by BBC Radio Norfolk and the EDP who captured the spirit of the moment https://www.greatyarmouthmercury.co.uk/news/education/gcse-results-2020-great-yarmouth-acle-caister-flegg-1-6801880
