WG MM 01A Musical Medley at The Winter Gardens, Margate

On Tuesday 07 February 2017, twenty-seven pupils from Y7 to Y13 the Royal Harbour Academy performed in a concert organised for all five schools in the Coastal Academies Trust. Our students gave very strong singing, dance and acting performances.They had to wait over an hour before they could perform as the last school in alphabetical order. 

The Lower School singing group – the Royal Harbour Harmonies – sang their own arrangement of Hold Back The River (James Bay) to great applause from the audience of hundreds.

The Y10 Soul Band performed Proud Mary (Ike and Tina Turner) with great instrumental prowess, fine lead singing and tremendous support from four backing vocalists in a particularly convincing and fast-paced performance.

The Y13 finished off the school performances with a self-penned and very committed sketch based on The Wizard Of Oz. All of the cast acted and sang with strength and were also very well received in the hall.

This was a very successful evening for all five schools taking part. Our own students faced their natural feelings of nervousness and performed to their very best ability on a large stage which many stars have played before them. Their performances allowed all of us associated with the Royal Harbour Academy to feel justifiably proud.

Students from the Royal Harbour Academy were delighted to be awarded the prestigious award of ‘Best Pitch’ at the Annual Teen Tech City Challenge 2017. The venue for this year’s Teen Tech was the magnificent Emirates stadium, home to Arsenal Football Club.

Ten students from year 8 and year 9 attended the annual Teen Tech Conference which allows students to immerse themselves in an array of Tech based challenges that are organised by various Tech Industries including Google, Bloomberg, TFL, Cummins and a host of companies that were looking to inspire the future generation of students into choosing a career in the Tech/Design Technology/STEM sector.

yearbook cartoonYearbook 2017

We are now fast approaching the New Year, you and your son or daughter are probably aware that 2017 is going to be a very important year in their lives. In order to ensure each student has some tangible memories from this exciting period of their lives the ‘Student Council’ have decided to create a hardback ‘Leavers Yearbook.’  

To cover the costs of purchasing the book students will be asked to contribute to the cost which we envisage will be approximately £15. We are proposing to set up a staged payment system and students may be able to earn rewards in the New Year to help towards the costs. This information will be forwarded to you next year when the students can opt into the scheme.

At the moment if your son or daughter believes they may be interested in this exciting opportunity can you sign the permission slip below as within this book your son or daughter will have the choice of having their individual photograph taken and/or be in a group photograph which will then be put into the Yearbook.

RHA smallerSchool Uniform - January 2017

Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to thank you for your continued support for a number of school initiatives during the course of the year.

Punctuality to school has improved significantly and a number of our neighbours have commented on how pleasant and polite our students are as they make their way to and from school. Please may I ask you to remind your son or daughter that they need to be in school before 8.40am every morning as lessons start promptly at 8.45am.

Along with promptness it is also important that all our students attend school as often as possible and by the end of the year we would like all students to have an overall attendance figure of 97%. All the evidence points to the fact that students with high attendance make better progress than those that don’t and I would be grateful if you would support us in our aim.

RHA smallerEmployability Day

On Tuesday 13th December we will be holding an Employability Day for Year 11 students at the Royal Harbour Academy.

The Employability Day has been arranged by Education Business Partnership (EBP) and will involve students participating in a variety of workshops to help them find out about different career pathways, as well as learning CV writing and interview tips. An array of local businesses will be represented during the day, which should open up doors for students who are looking to move into employment in those sectors.

The day will start at the normal time of 8:45am and students should go straight to the theatre, where they will be registered and given an introduction for the day. Students may wear smart-casual clothing instead of their normal school uniform, however are asked to be mindful of the fact that they will be representing themselves and the school to local employers; they should dress appropriately to ensure they give a good impression, as they would for a job interview.

As you will be aware, earlier this term Year 11 completed Pre-Public Exams. In the afternoon of 13th December, students will receive their results from these Exams. Once they have received their results, they will be complete a reflection as well as having a one-to-one mentoring session with a member of staff.

This is a really important day for your son or daughter, in terms of getting them to think about career pathways for the future and focussing on what they need to do to ensure they achieve the grades that they need to succeed. We hope that you will support us in ensuring that your son or daughter makes the most of this day.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
