On the 15th April amid a very heavy spring downpour, four A-level students and their teachers set off for a weekend of Geography fieldwork in Dorset. Our hearts sank as we travelled south and the rain continued, but as we arrived at the PGL centre at Osmington Bay, the sky finally cleared and the sun came out. Smiles on faces, we spent the afternoon team building, tackling the fear of the giant swing and the fast paced excitement of aeroball before chilling out in the activity zone that evening over a few games of table tennis and far too many sweets!

The next day we got down to the Geography fieldwork section of the weekend, visiting four different locations along the UNESCO Heritage Jurassic Coast. We tried our hand at beach profiling and land use mapping before tucking into a lunch of fish and chips in Lyme Regis. In the afternoon, we visited a range of different beaches to examine the management put in place to protect this stunning coastline. We were able to collect lots of information and data to apply in our unit 2 exam and have developed a strong understanding of why different parts of the coast are managed in different ways.

On our last day, we visited the famous Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, where we were able to see and discuss the formation of a range of coastal features. Although we had a tough walk over the cliffs, the views were amazing and we all caught a little sun along the way. Thanks to Miss Room and Mr Walbank for their hard work and giving up their weekend.

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.

Visit by Mrs Deborah Inskip, High Sheriff of Bedfordshire


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.
