Learning Animation at NCA

Students from Nightingale Community Academy have been working with Chocolate Film Workshops, a company who are aiming to create a new generation of young filmmakers. They have been working on a special project to put everything they learnt throughout the year into practise. 

The video, which was screened at Battersea Power Station to celebrate the Year of Engineering was made used stop motion technology. Freddie, Shay, Charlie and Lewis were really focused on this project and really made the most of the opportunity.

A member of staff from Chocolate Film Workshops said “the boys from Nightingale Community Academy displayed the most imagination and creativity so please give them a high five!”

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
