  • Ethics Conference

    Published 20/07/23

    Our first annual Ethics Conference proved to be a huge success. Students from Year 12 across the Trust schools attended and thoroughly enjoyed the range of workshops they could attend and the expertise of our guest speakers. 

    The conference began with two keynote speakers, Dan Belcher SSAT and Guy Rippon Aston Villa, followed by two workshops and a range of expertise in literacy, policing, marketing, charity, sustainable development, local and national politics and philosophy.  
    The conference was concluded by Peter Lantos, a Holocaust survivor, who gave students a captivating talk about his life story.

    What a fantastic event enjoyed by staff and students alike, and we look forward to hosting another next year.

  • Students Perform at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire

    Published 19/07/23

    A group of students from Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 had another exciting opportunity to develop their instrumental, ensemble and music-making skills. 

    The music workshop and performance were held at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and led by "National Orchestra for All", whose programme is about giving young people who wouldn't normally have the opportunity to rehearse and play in a large symphony orchestra, to perform with other schools and led by professional instrumental section leaders. 
    The performance was well received by the audience and the students enjoyed the experience of performing live. 

    I would like to thank all students; you were so engaged, focused, thoughtful, polite... not to mention being passionate in your playing! The NFA team said that they were genuinely blown away by the positive attitude you arrived with and maintained throughout a very enjoyable if intense day.  Well done! 

    Mr Channer, Head of Music
