Marlowe Innovation Centre partnership with Royal Harbour AcademyMIC

The Sixth Form at The Royal Harbour Academy are very pleased to be forming strong links with The Marlowe Innovation Centre and their tenants.

Students are fortunate to have opportunities opened up to them, whether it be students touring the business centre to gain an insight into a professional working environment or placing students with tenants for work experience.

On 10th May, three members from the Marlowe Innovation Centre and seven tenants took part in a speed dating style event hosted by The Royal Harbour Academy. It involved 60 sixth form students who spent three minutes per business, asking various questions, including how they started their business, what qualifications they needed and tips for future success. The focus of the event was to help students engage with professional people and gain as much information as possible from the various businesses that were in attendance.

Kearsney 01Kearsney Abbey Survival Camping Trip

A group of Royal Harbour Academy Sixth Form students were taken on a 2 night camping trip to Kearsney Abbey on 26th April, led by Public Services teacher, Miss Bygraves.

Students were taught key survival skills that will support them in their Public Services course. On the first day students were split into two groups and were challenged to build the tallest flag post and the most waterproof bivouac (shelter), using only natural resources for both.

In the evenings, students participated in team building activities including life size Ker-Plunk and tent building and also had to cook their dinner over fires that they had to ignite themselves.

marathonRoyal Harbour Academy Marathon Runner

A teacher from the Royal Harbour Academy completed the London Marathon on Sunday with a personal best of 2 hours 31 minutes and 38 seconds.

Mr Millard, Head of History and Raising Standards Co-ordinator, finished in 81st position in a field of nearly 40,000. It is the second time the teacher has competed in this event, last year finishing in 95th position but despite this Mr Millard said the marathon proved to be a great challenge, ‘I struggled greatly after 16 miles and was 9 minutes slower on my second half compared with my first half. I felt a little deflated but I had an amazing reaction going through mile 25 from my family, friends and colleagues who sent messages of support and my students who congratulated me the day after. I have felt totally overwhelmed. It was a personal best for me so I will take that positive. Hopefully I can use it as a bit of inspiration to our students undertaking exams next  month to never give up and keep moving forward.’

Mr Millard hopes to compete in the Thanet Marathon in September in more local surroundings.

revision gcseGCSE Revision Timetable

With less than 50 academic days for your child left in Year 11 before their summer examinations, I wanted to take this opportunity to draw attention to the variety of revision sessions that are available after school and at lunch times.

These sessions will focus on key skills needed in the exams and important content and should be seen as a compliment to the preparation being done in lessons towards GCSE exams. Please support the school in encouraging your child to attend sessions which you deem as priorities for their education.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding the programme of sessions available.

Kind regards,

Mr Millard, Raising Standards Leader for Year 11

RHA smallerYear 11 Revision and Uniform

As Year 11 start their final set of Pre-Public Exams and begin their final run up to their actual exams, there are a couple of points I would like to raise with you.

Revision is key to students achieving the best possible grades in their exams and the school will be doing a number of things to support your sons and daughters with their out of class learning. I am enclosing a letter from Mr Millard about the current after school revision sessions and a programme for the Easter holiday revision will be posted on the website before April.

On Tuesday 28th March we will be running a revision evening for parents and students. During the evening, teachers will run a number of workshops which will be of use to you and your son or daughter during this important but stressful run up to the examination season. The school will write to you with more information in due course.

A few years ago, from this time of year, the school allowed Year 11 to wear their own clothes although still adhering to a 6th Form dress code. The intention behind the move was to help motivate students by treating them as prospective 6th Form students and as more independent young adults. In the past, this approach has worked well with Year 11 feeling a sense of reward for their hard work but also a genuine sense of independence which has been transferred into a positive work ethic.

We would like to trial this approach with the current Year 11 students and, should it prove effective, allow students to wear their own clothes until the end of this academic year. However I feel that you as parents should be consulted and if you have any questions or opinions about this proposal please do let us know by emailing Mrs Francis through the school’s website.

Yours sincerely

Mr S Pullen, Headteacher

Mrs A Francis, Head of Upper School
