As we draw to the end of our school year it is a privilege to take some time to reflect on all that has been achieved in our community over the course of this year.


This term has been one of change and moving on as we say goodbye and good luck to our Year 11 students who completed their exams and enjoyed the community celebrations on leavers’ day.  This was the occasion to say goodbye in school, reflecting on how far everyone has come.  The Prom was held at Slepe Hall and it provided a very mature and fitting opportunity to say our final farewells as each individual embarks upon the next stage of their journey.  We are grateful for all they have contributed to the Academy and wish them all the very vest for the future.


At the beginning of the year I asked all of the students to approach all of the learning, giving 100% and making the most of every opportunity.  In Assembly last week I challenged the students to reflect on the year and assess whether they have put in 100% effort and have made the most of every learning opportunity.  Clearly many of our students have and they are to be congratulated.  They can approach next year with confidence.  All students have the potential to be the very best that they can be and we will continue to reinforce this next year.


This summer we say goodbye to colleagues who are leaving with our thanks for their huge contributions to the school.  I would like to particularly mention Karen Dodsworth, Deputy Headteacher, who is retiring.  She has achieved so much in the two years she has been at Ernulf.  She will be missed by students, staff and parents. 


The following teaching staff are joining us as from September:  Aline Rolland (English), Daniel Heron (Science), Kellen Moniz (PE), Brogan Webber (PE), Catherine Walker (MFL) and Karina Quigley (Art).


Finally my thanks to all parents/carers for your continued support and encouragement of your sons and daughters to aim to be the very best that they can be.


Ms Tracy Brogan
