Activities Week

posted 14 Jul 2015, 01:47 by   [ updated 15 Jul 2015, 00:10 ]
This is the week in the Millbrook Academy calendar where the students get the opportunity to participate in activities that they may not normally get to do in the normal class environment. The activities on offer during the week can enhance a pupils education in many of the subjects they face on a day to day basis and for this reason we think it is very important that every pupil gets this experience.


SoundCloud is an audio platform, which schools and academies can use to share, collaborate and promote audio recordings.
Below is a link to the track written and recorded by 12 boys during their creative day today. All the lyrics and performances are their own work, with help from The Songwriting Charity. They chose "integrity" as their theme. They did a brilliant job today and all of them got involved, either with music production, lyric writing, performing or artwork.

Mobile Rock Climbing Wall

Rock climbing is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. To give the students a chance to experience rock climbing the Academy brought in a mobile climbing wall.




Student Reporters

There have been several students who have been in and around the Academy reporting on all of the activities to develop their communication and media skills.



Students have been designing and producing murals to be displayed in different departments.
