Today KS3 students went to a Basketball Tournament and came a very respectable second – well done to the students involved. The KS4 tournament will be next week.
On Friday Lorin La Fave from The Breck Foundation will be in talking to students about staying safe online and telling her story about her son Breck. The school is also supporting “No Tech for Breck” which is on 7th February – staff and students will not access any technology that day or will be fined! This will exclude using technology for learning!
EBP will be in on Friday talking to students about careers.
The weather is forecast to be cold this week so a reminder that jumpers and coats would be advisable to wear to school.
Mock exams will be happening over the next few weeks for year 10’s and 11. Letters and timetables will be be sent out this week
We are pleased to advise you that the Regional Schools Commissioner has confirmed the ‘Local Solution’ for the sponsorship of Brune Park School. The GFM (Gosport & Fareham Multi-Academy Trust) will initially consist of four schools; Bay House, Brune Park, Gomer Junior and LWS Academy. We continue to wait for the final decision on The Wave free-school application. The GFM aims to become a formal legal entity in March 2017.
We will brief you in more detail in the near future, although it remains very much business as usual at all the schools. We will continue to do all we can to support our learners in making excellent progress and achieving well. Staff meetings are also being held later this month at all the schools in the MAT to share the same information.
As you might be aware we are due some very cold weather over the next few days and we would like to ask that students arrive at the academy wearing appropriate clothing for the season.
The LWS uniform does consist of a Nike hoodie that is suitable to keep your son warm and black trousers, shorts should only be warn for sports activities.
On behalf of the Academy we would like to wish all our parents/carers and students a Happy New Year.
Students have settled back into school this week and we are sure they will be looking forward to a busy spring term ahead.
Before Christmas the Student Justice Board was discussed and formed with their first meeting being held next week.
Youth Options on a Monday will start again next week for year 10 as will college for year 10 and 11 students.

Due to ongoing road works from the housing developments the road leading down to the Academy is closed. There is a diversion in place leading through the housing estate. There is an option to come onto Montefiore Drive via Brook Lane and park just before the bollards then there is a very short walk to the Academy. Parking is also available in the Academy car park, space are limited.
We use Twitter every day to post amazing pieces of students work and love to share their success. We would love to see more parents/carers and academy supporters following us on Twitter.
