New Year 7 students enjoyed an action packed Induction Day at Felixstowe Academy!

With new students arriving with smiles on their faces and some literally skipping into the playground, all the children approached the day with a positive and proactive attitude.  All of them a credit to their primary schools along with their parentsand carers!

The smiles lasted right through the day and with new friends made, students were able to go back home with tales of explosive science lessons, action filled drama sessions and much more!

Felixstowe Academy not only welcomed the new intake of Year 7 students, but also met with their parents at a special Parents Information Evening.  The evening gave parents the opportunity to meet with Form Tutors, teaching staff, the Senior Leadership Team and Governors.   

Principal, Mr Salter, led an informative presentation where he spoke of the Academy’s desire to nurture and develop our new students throughout their academic career.

Mr Salter said ‘Today has been another highlight for me this year. It was fantastic to see so many new Year 7 students arriving this morning, many excited and looking forward to their day at the Academy. Those who were slightly apprehensive and nervous soon settled and were looked after and reassured that everything was going to be fine. I was pleased to see our new students enjoying their lessons and was delighted to have had time to spend talking to them at lunchtime.’

‘Meeting with parents and carers at the Intake Evening was an equally enjoyable and positive experience. I am so pleased that parents and carers are keen to work in partnership with us and that there is a shared vision for what we want and that is to have an 'outstanding' Academy right at the heart the Felixstowe community.’

A more detailed report on Induction day with picture gallery will be available on our Newsletter and website soon.
