Options Journey Newsletter

We are excited to announce that our Options Journey newsletter, January edition, is now available! Please see attached below to view.


Our Senior Assistant Principal, Mrs Copland, would like to make a special mention regarding one of our ex pupils returning to Stanground Academy to deliver an exciting talk: 

We welcomed Kamal Ellis-Hyman from 'Aim a little Higher' to speak to year 9 pupils who are embarking on the start to their option's selection process. He encouraged the pupils to 'know themselves, know their vision, and build their dreams'. Year 9 pupils thoroughly enjoyed his presentation and when asked ‘what did you take away from Kamal’s presentation’, this is what they said… 

“It is about making my own decisions, what I love doing and not be swayed by what my friends are doing” 

“Don’t chase your dreams instead build them. It will take time to be who I want to be, but I know I can do it” 

“Not to quit, keep going even when it gets tough. This inspired me.”
