Dear Parent/Carer,

As your son/daughter enters a highly stressful period of their lives, we at Greenwood Academy are keen to keep their minds focussed on their studies, but just as importantly, to offer as much support as possible and encourage attendance to revision opportunities.

It is imperative that your son/daughter is in school, on time, every day, arriving at normal school opening time until Friday 13th June 2014.

Friday 23rd May 2014 – Final date for payment of Yearbook
We are producing a yearbook for Year 11’s, the cost of which is £12. Students will be asked this week if they would like to purchase a copy.

Students are able to purchase their yearbooks by the following methods.
  • Full payment – by cash or cheque to the main office 
  • (cheques to be made payable to Greenwood Academy) 
  • Vivo Miles – Students can use Vivo miles as full or part payment. 
We will be asking students this week if they would like a yearbook.

Students sitting exams from Monday 16th June onwards should continue to attend as normal until their final exam has been completed.

Leaver’s assembly - Monday 16th June
All Year 11’s must arrive at school by 2.15pm in full school uniform. This event is extremely enjoyable for the pupils as we reminisce about the time they have spent at Greenwood Academy and look to the future. . It may continue after 3.05pm, however, we do not envisage it ending any later than 4.00pm.

Reward trip to Alton Towers Theme Park - Tuesday 17th June
It is our intention to take all Year 11’s to Alton Towers Theme Park in Staffordshire. Students will be asked to meet the following criteria to enable them to be included.
(Further details and timings of the trip will be confirmed at a later date)

Students need to earn 2000 Vivo’s over the next 23 school days, and are able to do this in the following way:-
  • 50 Vivo Will be awarded to each individual student for every day of full attendance. 
  • 100 Vivo Will be awarded for each extra revision session that the student attends (We are suggesting a minimum of 10 revision sessions) 
Students must attend the leaver’s assembly on Monday 16th June to receive their Alton Towers ticket

Year 11 Prom - Wednesday 25th June at 7.00 pm

This is a spectacular occasion in which Students can really relax and enjoy themselves. The majority of our Year 11’s have already paid for this event and we look forward to seeing them on the evening

If you have any queries regarding any of the above please do not hesitate to contact me on the school number, 0121 464 6101 or alternatively email me:

Yours Sincerely

Mr P Williams
Head of Year 11
