It’s not every day that an academy has a visit from the Central Band of the RAF but All Saints were delighted to host a concert on Friday 10 January, starting the Band’s new season of school visits together with the RAF Careers Service.

The Band performed a fun programme in front of the Councillors John Chatterley and Peter Williams (Town Mayors of Dunstable and Houghton Regis) and a hall full of students. The main hall was flooded with the sounds of military precision and professionalism as arrangements of songs from the charts, well-known tunes and even a medley of Nintendo themes were played by the thirty-two member Band, directed by Warrant Officer Dave Richards.

There were opportunities for audience participation as students yelled pop choruses as the Band played and joined the percussion section for a rendition of
Tea for Two with the Principal, Tom Waterworth, conducting.

WO Richards promised an entertaining programme and it was that and much more. We wish the Band well with its tour around the UK and overseas in the coming months and thank them very much for visiting All Saints.

All Saints Academy was delighted to showcase its new facilities to Mrs Deborah Inskip, the High Sheriff of Bedfordshire, on 12 June 2013.

During her visit Mrs Inskip was amazed at the excellent behaviour of our students.

The students themselves were very courteous and were asking Mrs Inskip about her role as High Sheriff, and were very keen to seek Mrs Inskip’s support in getting the Queen to visit our school.

Mrs Inskip said ‘I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and was particularly delighted to meet so many of your pupils and
staff.  As they were all eager to claim, you have an amazing school.  You are right to be proud of all you have
achieved since opening’.

Year 3 & 4 Change for Life Sports Festival hosted by All Saints Academy

The Academy hosted the Change For Life Sports Festival for years 3 & 4 here at the Academy on Tuesday 7
th May 2013; it was the first festival to be held here on the new 3G pitch. A total of six local lower schools attended the event and had a fabulous day, they were able to try a variety of new activities and sports, students and the teachers of the lower schools were also very impressed with the new building and the outdoor facilities, with many students saying “wow, this is amazing” as they entered the Academy. Staff were also very impressed with the building, one stating that “the festival was an excellent opportunity for the students, our facilities are very limited so this is great”.

The event would not have been able to run without the help of our wonderful leaders and our Gifted and Talented students so a massive thank you goes to the following students: Shannon Stack, Moly Smyley, Ciara Craig, Rebekah Gearey, Millie Henderson-Williams, Ellie Wheatley, Jonathan Wyllie, Jordan Knight and Ellie Bastian. Also thank you to the year 13 Dance group that opened the festival with a brilliant dance routine, once again this was much appreciated by all staff and students at the event.

During the Easter holidays, we took 10 AS Geographers to Nettlecombe Court Field studies centre in Somerset. Set in the beautiful open countryside, Nettlecombe is a stunning old manor house which now hosts GCSE and A-level Geography courses.

We spent a successful weekend completing fieldwork for our AS Unit 2 exam, examining the development of the Somerset coast as a tourist resort, the coastal management in place and comparing the rural deprivation of villages in the area. On the way home we stopped off at Stonehenge to see one of the Wonders of Britain.

The students were fantastic representatives of the Academy and demonstrated excellent leadership and team work skills throughout the weekend.

On Monday 09, Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 February 2015, All Saints Academy performed its annual school production – this year, the Wizard of OZ.

Students were incredible during rehearsals and performed two fantastic evening shows, as well as a matinee show for children from local feeder schools.

For all involved it has been an amazing experience and as Head of Production I can honestly say I am truly proud to have worked with such talented young stars!

A huge thank you to all students and staff who made the performances possible.

On Wednesday 30th of January the year 12 BTEC Art group participated in a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to help generate ideas for their Alice In Wonderland project.

The students are all working towards a BTEC Level 3 qualification in Art and Design and have to work to briefs that simulate real industry experience. In this instance, students are designing a book cover for Lewis Carroll’s famous story.

All students had the opportunity to use the potter’s wheel to create their own cup for the tea party which was decorated with paints and glazes to reflect the nature of the story.

All of the students fully participated with costumes and activities leading to interesting, successful outcomes. Even Miss Anton came along and joined in with a Mad Hatter’s hat!

Just before Easter, 6 year 9 students had work selected for an open exhibition at Luton Hoo Walled Garden. The opening evening was really busy and it was lovely to see the students and parents there. Well done to Georgia Fanelli, Rhianne Harvey, Courtney Humphries, Josh Schliebe, Caitlyn Ferrari and Penny Kearey. You should all be proud of your work and your selection for the exhibition. All other pieces by schools were produced by sixth formers and university students so to see the work of year 9 students holding their own against much more experienced artists was a very proud moment. Particular congratulations go to Josh Schliebe who won 3rd prize as judged by the head of Art at the University of Bedfordshire.
