Weekly Updates

This week it was a real pleasure to welcome Year 11 back into NLA for their leavers celebrations. Students and staff had the opportunity to celebrate their successes and gather lovely messages to remember their time at NLA. Next week we are welcoming Year 6 parents and students who have confirmed places into school to get a real taste of what NLA is all about.

Mrs Vernon

Highlights this Week:

In-Harmony Liverpool Youth hubs.

North Liverpool Academy is to be the secondary school partner for the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra for the next few years, focussing on developing exceptional music provision in the City and most importantly for us, in our school community.

There are 130 spaces available across the city and anyone with musical experience can sign up and also anyone with an interest in learning instruments or playing instruments can sign up.

A leaflet has been emailed to all Year 7 and 8 parents.

Premier League Kicks Tournament

A group of students, made up of Year 10 and 9’s, visited the University of Nottingham this week to take part in the Under 16’s Premier League Kicks tournament. The students managed to reach the quarter final and only conceded one goal during eight games.

LSSP Dance Competition

Year 7 and 8 students competed at the LSSP Secondary Dance competition at Archbishop Beck Catholic College on Wednesday evening. The girls faced other secondary schools from around Liverpool and came home as champions. The students behaved professionally both on and off stage who represented the school with outstanding behaviour. Their hard work has paid off and spectators at the competition really enjoyed witnessing their talent and technique.

Year 9 Scholars STEM Crest

Year 9 Scholars spent the day on Monday looking at future careers in Artificial Intelligence in a workshop delivered by All About STEM. They took part in a Crest Discovery Day leading to a certificate which is recognised by employers and universities. Their ideas are also being entered into a STEM competition. Wishing all the entries good luck!
