The Year 11 Prom was held at Putteridge Bury in Luton on Friday 28 June 2013 and was a hugely successful event, and attended by a record number of students.
Mrs Spicer, KS4 Achievement Leader, was particularly proud of the way in which the students behaved and said
‘All of our students made a real effort to look as glamorous as possible and it was a privilege to host the occasion for these now young ladies and gentlemen.
It was a great way to celebrate the milestone as these young people move on to pastures new, although a record of number of students are returning to the Academy’s Sixth Form’.

On Monday 16 September 2013 we were delighted to be joined by Bill Rammell, Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive of The University of Bedfordshire, who officially opened the brand new external Sports facilities at All Saints Academy.
We were joined by over 100 Year 5 children from Houghton Regis Primary Schools (Hawthorn Park, Houghton Regis Primary, Thomas Whitehead, Thornhill and Tithe Farm) who, led by All Saints’ student Sports Leaders, took part in a range of team-building activities and football and hockey tournaments.
Aaron Mays (Head Boy) and Rachael Elmes (Prefect) spoke briefly to welcome and introduce Bill Rammell who spoke about the partnership between the University and All Saints.
After the event Bill said “I was delighted to take part in the Official Opening and to meet so many of the students who will benefit from the new modern facilities. The relationship between All Saints and the University of Bedfordshire goes from strength to strength. We are proud to share in your success – on the sports field, in the classroom and in the recent tremendous exam results. The results at All Saints keep rising and rising – there should be no limit to our ambitions. Well done to everyone involved and I look forward to cheering all the sports victories to come!”
An enjoyable day was had by all.

All Saints Academy held an Olympic Day on Tuesday 20 March 2012. All students were involved in activities across Curriculum Areas which relate to the Olympics. The purpose of the day was to make all students aware of the Olympics and experience different aspects of how they could be involved; it’s not just about Sport!
“………the important thing in life is not to triumph but to compete……..not victory but combat…….not to have vanquished but to have fought well…..not winning but taking part…..” – Pierre de Coubertin (the founder of the modern Olympic Games).
Activities were run by teachers in Curriculum Areas along with assistance from Sixth Form students taking those subjects. A taste of the activities on offer were creating logos and mascots in ICT; enacting the opening and closing ceremony in Dance and Drama; investigating the Science of the swimming pool; Media and Marketing; investigating Olympic venue sites in Business Studies; History of Olympics; Olympic gods and goddesses translated into poetry; and studying the Olympic record trends in Maths.
The Olympic values were very much in evidence throughout the day: Respect, Courage, Friendship, Determination, Equality, Excellence and Inspiration.
“Fantastic” – Member of staff
“A fun, active social team building event……….we should do it again” – Year 12 student
“I have really enjoyed the day doing all the sessions” –Year 9 Student

Everyone at All Saints Academy is now inspired to get involved in more Sport, and taking part in these activities has raised enthusiasm and awareness in the run up to the Olympics London 2012.
