A great term with attendance!

Attendance at Ark William Parker has improved considerably in the last term. Our boys have shown a commendable dedication to their studies and have shown the perseverance to attend school every day. We are sure that the results of this will show in their end of year assessments in the summer! Have a great half-term and see you back at school on Monday 4th June! Remember - Attendance is important!

Drum masterclass

A group of students were lucky enough to be picked to do a morning’s drum masterclass with a former Helenswood and sixth form student, Beth Mepham. Students began by learning how to start a beat and by the end of the session, could play a whole song through!

The boys thoroughly enjoyed the morning and their feedback was excellent...“I really loved it and would like to do it again”….“ I want a drum kit at home so I can learn.” 

It was really worthwhile seeing students persevere and achieve their goals of “banging out” a recognisable tune. We had a lot of very happy smiling students by the end of the session. Here’s to the next one! The students were a credit to the academy displaying exemplar behaviour and manners to our visitor.
