Celebrating our NCA Year

We celebrated the achievements of our pupils at a special award ceremony in front of friends and family on 28th June. The afternoon event started with the Principal Mr Bailey, giving an overview of the year and sharing some of the year’s highlights which included singing at the Fairfield Halls in Croydon with other Wandsworth schools.

He then presented awards to individual students for their achievements and progress made throughout the year.

The first award was for the most improved reader presented for the first time this year in memory of Julia, who set up the literacy volunteer group but sadly passed away last year. Her husband presented the award and the whole room was incredibly touched when one of the pupils spoke about the impact Julia had on his confidence.

After awards were handed out to the Primary pupils, they gave an enthusiastic performance of some of the songs they have been learning in music including one from the Lion King.

Pupils in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 were presented with awards for progress in literacy, maths and science and those students leaving Nightingale Community Academy this summer were given a special NCA t-shirt to get signed by their friends and teachers.

After the formal presentations, pupils and their families enjoyed delicious food prepared by the Chef and the catering pupils. There was also exhibitions in the Art, DT and Science department and a special performance of Macbeth which had the whole audience captivated. Some of the animals from Tom’s Farm made an appearance and the boys had the chance to take part in some sporting activities.

All in all it was a fantastical way to celebrate the achievements of this academic year and we thank all parents and carers for their continued support.

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.
