It’s incredible that we are already at the end of the first half term of this academic year. As a new Principal at NBA, I am extremely impressed by the enormous commitment and potential demonstrated by the vast majority of students every day. We are continuously encouraging them to “Think big – and always do the right thing”.
For our new Year 7 students, it’s been an exciting few weeks and they have settled in beautifully, achieving the highest number of positive comments from teachers in the school – well done.
Most students in the older year group recognise the importance of their study this year and have started well. The support of parents in ensuring that they are working hard, completing homework and making use of tools such as GCSE Pod or revision guides is extremely valuable.
Outside lessons, we’ve had some fantastic visits, exceptional sports results and, most exciting has been this week’s “NBA’s got Talent” event. I was impressed by the huge number of students putting themselves forward to audition and the exceptional talent demonstrated by finalists and of course our first winning magician.
