The need for additional secondary school places in Sandwell has resulted in the opportunity for Q3 to expand its work to reach a larger number of students. The first building phase of the new Academy in Langley will be completed next year, allowing us to open in September 2016 with our first Year 7 intake. This is an exciting development for all stakeholders associated with Q3 Academy and will bring benefits to students and staff at both Q3 Academies, which we are determined will be centres of educational excellence in Sandwell.
Students at Q3 Academy will be getting involved with politics next week during the run up to the General Election. As well as a mock Downing Street set up in the Design Centre, students will be learning about each party and their manifestos throughout the week before finally having the chance to vote on Thursday 7th May at break and lunch time.
The Q3 Bird Box has been on site for over 12 months and has had the odd visitor, who we affectionately call “Bubo”, but over the last few weeks it has been populated with a nest and eggs! You can view the live webcam feed here.
Another great result for Lewis Bradbury after winning a Bronze medal in the English Karate Federation (EKF) Nationals. He competed in the Junior male division Kumite. A great achievement for his first time at this level.
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.
