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 Year 7s into the Inspiration Academy building and current Year 9s will have the opportunity to experience their taster lessons in the UTC option subjects in readiness for Year 10. This will include those subjects that students haven’t had experience of before – such as Electronics/Engineering and Business.

Monday 11th July – Friday 15th July: STEAM Week – this includes lots of events, trips and activities across the whole Academy! Year 9 will be developing their wonderful MYP Community Projects ready to share with parents and governors as part of the MYP Exhibition and Graduation on Friday 15th July. Parents of Year 9, teachers and governors have all been invited to attend. If you haven’t already notified us of your attendance, please do so using this link.

Please note that school will finish at 1:30 pm on Friday 15th July to all students in Years 7, 8 and 10 only.

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

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

Students will be excited to purchase their new professional business dress for Year 10. Please be aware that the expectations on skirt length for girls and footwear are clear and failure to meet these expectations in the first week back will result in loss of learning time. The guidance below is extremely clear – please be sure to read this before purchasing a new uniform.

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

Yours sincerely,
