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.

Thursday 27 September was a momentous day in All Saints history so far when The Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, officially opened the new Academy building.
During his visit the Archbishop spoke at length with many students in their classrooms, as well a discussion on topical issues with members of the Sixth Form and the Student leadership Group.
The Archbishop was high in praise for what we have achieved at All Saints since our opening in September 2009.
In his address to the students, the Archbishop urged them to be humble and to think of others before themselves. He made particular mention of ‘opening doors’ in order to help others.
The Archbishop gave very generously of his time and created a real buzz of excitement.
