For the second time 50 GCSE Art students visited Tate Modern in London on 4 February 2019. They experienced an incredible variety of work, spanning many decades and from a fascinating range of different artists, inspiring them for their own work. They viewed the gallery in small groups, allowing them to follow their interests and develop their confidence. They were a credit to their school; on the way home they were buzzing from the experience.
Thanks you to Miss Dobson and Mrs Dougherty for organising the trip and to Lucy for taking such great pictures.
On 24 January 2019 we had the great pleasure of having Aldeburgh Young Musicians with us for an all day workshop. Pupils from Lynn Grove and Caister worked in 3 groups on an improvsed piece of music which they performed in the afternoon. Their hard work payed off as the result was absolutely fantastic. Great to hear music made in a group without the help of sheet music but inspired by great music educators.
On 22 January 2019 we had 5 of our Cross Country qualifiers running at Langley School (Loddon) in the Norfolk Cross Country Championships 2019. They had all worked really hard in the build up to this event and ran despite the freezing conditions. All showed great endeavor and grit amongst some exceptionally strong athletes. Well done Sophie, Milly, Nathan, Cameron and Ellie.

Well done to the year 11 pupils who collected their GCSE results on Thursday, 23 August 2018. We are very delighted for you and we could tell that you were pleased with your achievements.

Well done too for the excellent achievement in wide range of subjects; creative, academic and vocational.

We wish all year 11 pupils the very best for the future and look forward to hearing about their achievements in the next stage.
Year 9 pupils expressing an interest in Land Based Careers had the chance to visit Holkham Hall on 25 April 2018 and experience a taste of the careers that could be available to them.
First stop was the farming division where pupils learned about the different crops grown and what they can be used for, as well as getting to explore 2 different pieces of impressive farming equipment. Second stop was the magnificent Holkham Walled Garden where the pupils heard all about the different jobs of the gardeners and the future plans for the garden. Following lunch in the garden, pupils went to the gamekeeping division to learn first hand about the different conservation approaches as well as the practical aspects of gamekeeping. Lastly, pupils were given a tour of the Forestry division, where they discovered about the different equipment and trees used in forestry. A fantastic day and thanks to Miss Rix for organising, to Holkham Hall for the amazing day, and to NEACO for sponsoring the event and allowing pupils to attend.
World Book Day at Lynn Grove Academy was postponed due to the snow. However, the trusty library team were not going to let the bad weather defeat them and they rescheduled all the activities for the last week of term. And what a wonderful day it was with a beatifully decorated library, year 7 pupils and librarians dressed up as book characters, book sales from Norfolk Children’s Book Centre and our trusty friends from the Fritton Owl Sanctuary. There where story writing workshops and more activities throughout the day. Tahnk you to Mrs Bowles and her team for making the day happen.
