On Monday 7 December 2015 four Year 10 students travelled to the MFC Riverside Stadium to compete in the first round of the Premier League Enterprise Challenge 2015-16. The challenge aims to engage students in a real life problem that football clubs face and this year the challenge is to create an innovative solution to bring fans to the stadium for longer and increase revenue.
The Maths team at Freebrough Academy were delighted to welcome sixteen Year 6 students from Whitecliffe, Badger Hill, and Skelton Primary Schools, for the annual maths challenge.
The 2015 challenge saw students work in groups of four, working with new friends and partners from different schools. Each group took part in four challenges, contributing to their final scores.
As part of our commitment to valuing the views of young people, on 8 December 2015 Freebrough Academy received a silver commendation for developing and implementing plans to engage children and young people in our work as part of national Children’s Commissioner’s Takeover Challenge 2015-2016. With the commendation came the following message:
On 1 December 2015, Year 7 – 10 students were singing, clapping and dancing when Rich Cottell visited the academy to inform students about staying safe online, cyberbullying and discrimination. He informed students, incorporating music to get his message across, about the seriousness of inappropriate photos and images online.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at Freebrough Academy. Around the Academy staff and students are starting see Christmas decorations appearing. Christmas trees, icicle lights and even our own realistic log fire display which has sound effects too, located in the small atrium.
At Freebrough Academy we value parent feedback. Knowing what we do well and what we can improve on helps us to provide the best provision for our students. During academic tutoring day, this academic term, we asked you to fill out the Ofsted Parent View survey online to tell us your views. Below shows the results which are based on our feedback on the Ofsted Parent View website for the academic year 2015/2016 so far.
