Year 7 art project
As my time as a Principal/Head Teacher comes to an end, I reflect on an extraordinary year. This time last year Mount Grace and John Cleveland College closed their doors to students and we commenced moving all the resources from the Mount Grace site onto the newly formed Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form site (HAJC). It was touch and go whether the school would be ready to open on the 1st September 2015, but open it did and what a successful year it has been. The new school is firmly established with a completely different atmosphere to the one that existed prior to September 2015. Someone who visited the school last week for the first time since it became HAJC commented “This is not the same school as the one I visited two years ago. It feels completely different what an amazing transformation.”
The concerns some parents and students had about having Year 7 to 13 students on one site have been unfounded. Since the 520 Year 11 students left several weeks ago we are beginning to see what HAJC will be like next year. A significant reduction in student numbers, plenty of space both inside and outside the building, an equal distribution of numbers in each year group and most staff knowing all students. In many ways it could be argued next academic year will be the ‘second’ start of the new school!
At the end of this academic year we say farewell to many staff and I would like to thank them for their hard work and commitment at HAJC and also at their previous school. Many students from the area have benefitted from their support, teaching, care and guidance and I wish them every success in the future.
I would also like to wish the young people every success and thank you for the support you have provided to your children and the school.
Finally, I wish Richard Cahill (new Principal) and the school every success in the future and hope you will give him the same support as you have given me.
