Academy update | September 2016
Hello and welcome to all our new parents and students joining us at Tuxford Academy.

The new school year has set off to a great start and I am happy to report that as usual the atmosphere at the Academy is busy and exciting. Many of our students have had a flying start to the academic year and in my new role as Academy Director I look forward to the pleasure of writing to them to congratulate them on their remarkable achievements.

Keep up the good work!

New school year

100% pass rate at GCSE (74% A*-C) and 99% pass rate at A level

It is with great pride that we can let you know that our 2016 examination results were excellent. We couldn't be more proud of our students who pulled out all the stops to achieve fantastic grades. It's great to let you know that one of our students – Lauren Miller achieved 100% in all four History examination papers – an outstanding achievement! A special well done to our equally outstanding History staff, who for the fourth year running have had students achieve this almost impossible result!

Uniform – maintaining high standards Uniform –
maintaining high

Maintaining high standards of uniform is incredibly important at Tuxford Academy and I know from speaking to our students that the Tuxford uniform is something they take great pride in wearing. Our uniform policy includes rules on uniform, make-up, hairstyles, jewellery and footwear and is available on our website. However if you have any questions or require a hard copy, please do contact the Academy for advice. Our students are fantastic ambassadors for our school every time they wear our uniform, so I would like to thank everyone for adhering to our policy.

Extra-curricular opportunities

At Tuxford we are proud of the extensive variety of extra-curricular activities we have on offer for our students. This year we are pleased to let you know that we have several new clubs which include Martial Arts, KS3 Drama and Basketball club – who have aptly called themselves the 'Tuxford Tornadoes!' A comprehensive list of all the enrichment clubs, activities and trips has gone out to all our students and information will be displayed around the Academy on display screens and outside the PE office. A copy of our full enrichment brochure can also be found on our website.
