Four of our students (Amandeep Kaur, Amelia Priddey, Luke Gardner and Javaughn Mair) took on the rest of their year group to reach the regional finals of the National FL Spelling Bee, where they put their French language skills to the test in a nail-biting fourth round. They didn’t quite win against some fierce competition, but the Academy are extremely proud of their performance and have no doubt another Q3 Academy team will be back next year to take the title.
Q3 Academy would like to invite all parents and carers of children who start their journey with the Academy in September to our New Intake evening on Wednesday 6th May. We anticipate the meeting to take approximately one hour, after which there will be an opportunity to ask questions and to meet members of the Q3 Team.
Sixth Form students, staff and invited guests from Education and Business were treated to a live violin concert by Violinist Craig Owen just before the Easter Break, as part of the annual Sponsors Dinner. Students were given a once in a lifetime opportunity to network with CEOs from major organisations within the West Midlands and surrounding areas whilst enjoying a three course meal and a wonderful live concert.
Competing against some tough schools who were very experienced having taken part several times previously, Q3 Academy outshone on the day. Our defence won the first case as our defendant was found not guilty. We scored higher than the winner from the previous 3 years, which was a massive achievement for our students.
Adam and James Chambers of Walsall FC returned to their former school to reminisce before the run up to their big game this Sunday (22/3/2015).

As part of the Aston Villa Social Enterprise programme, some of our Year 10 students pitched an idea to 4 top judges, including Aston Villa first team player Libor Kozak, in a Dragons’ Den style event.
A small group of Q3 Academy Sixth Form students were selected to take part in ITV’s Election 2015 School Debate on Tuesday 3rd March.
