Christmas Fair

DSC_0616

Festivities were in full flow last week at Nightingale Community Academy’s Christmas Fair. The rabbits were brought over from the farm for a pop up petting zoo, Christmas snacks and goods went down extremely well, faces were being painted, raffle tickets were selling like hot cakes, and the favourite part of the event, students had an opportunity to throw wet sponges at some of their favourite teachers!!

Headteacher Andre says “It was wonderful to welcome our new chair of governors, Barbara McIntosh and a number of our parents into school for what turned out to be a fantastic celebration. Next year we will open up the event to the wider community so keep an eye out for the date!”

What a lovely event and a great way to finish off a brilliant term!

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.
