Year 8 End of Term

Four female students working on computers

Dear Parents/Carers,

What a year it has been at The Leigh UTC and Inspiration Academy! As we approach the end of the Academic year I’d like to communicate some key dates during the last few weeks of the module

Monday 4th July – Friday 8th July: Induction Week – we will be welcoming next year’s Y7s into the Inspiration Academy building and current Year 8s will have the opportunity to experience lessons in the UTC building in readiness for their progression through the Academy. We look forward to welcoming Year 8 into the UTC for their first assembly at 8:30 on Monday morning!

Monday 11th July – Friday 15th July: STEAM Week – this includes lots of events, trips and activities.

On Tuesday 12th July Y8 students will be completing a range of baseline assessments in school and should attend in their usual school uniform for the day.

On Thursday 14th July Y8 students will be involved in a team building day on our wonderful new field. Students should attend this day in PE Kit as they will be taking part in a variety of team building sports games and activities, the school day will be slightly different and will run from 9am – 2pm. The cost of the day will be £5 and this will be payable on Parent Pay. Please do be vigilant regarding the weather forecast, we are expecting warm weather and so hats, sun cream and water bottles are highly recommended.

Please note that school will finish at 1:30 on Friday 15th July to all students in Y7, 8 and 10 to allow parents to come in and see the Y9 community projects and enjoy their graduation ceremony celebrating them moving into Y10 and The Leigh UTC.

Wednesday 20th July – Thursday 21st July: Sports Days! The event will be won through high participation and lots of effort! Further details to follow.

Friday 22nd July: Last day of school. School will finish at 1:30pm for all students.

Thank you for your continued support of The Leigh UTC. I wish you a fantastic end to the term.

Yours sincerely,

Steve Leahey
