On Monday 29th January, The Academy of St Nicholas and the Academy of St Francis of Assisi joined academic heads to prepare for English GCSE.

In the most inspirational masterclass delivered by expert Laura Kay, students learned how to get underneath the mark scheme and really embed her think, feel know, do structure for success in exams. Students were immersed in ‘Tick Tick Writing’ enabling them to really learn how to craft responses both creatively and accurately to gain top marks in their language paper.
Her simple WE ARE STARS method made language devices simple and engaging for students to remember and apply to their work
Students from both academies came together for the third time in one week following the heart-warming Humanutopia event and the grand All Saints Sixth form open event. It is  testament to the academic improvement across the All Saints Multi Academy Trust to see just how aspirational students are for their future with many students are intent and fully focussed in gaining careers in Law, Medicine, journalism and Astro Physics. Students from ASFA refused to get back on their coach until they had secured copies of Laura’s presentation. Student voice was overwhelmingly positive will all students remaining after school, for an extra hour of exam preparation.
Thank you to Mr  Lancaster for securing Laura’s talents. Laura worked with Mr Lancaster in his previous Academy securing outstanding results in English. He has managed to convince her to continue to work with both academies in the run up to the exams. With amazing resources, an outstanding teaching style and a commitment to improving the life chances of young people we can’t wait to see Laura gain soon.
Good luck in mocks this week Year 11
