On Wednesday 26 April 2017, Freebrough will be hosting a performance of ‘Made in India’, a professional performance by the renowned touring company Tamasha. The performance is touring Yorkshire in a range of venues and we have been selected to host a performance. ‘Made in India’ is a thrilling new play about birth and motherhood.
Year 6 students who have been allocated a place at Freebrough Academy in September 2017 will be visiting us on Wednesday evening, 29 March 2017.
Parents and students are requested to attend at 6.00 pm.
We are both shocked and saddened by the devastating news that two of our ex-students, Alex Yeoman and Harry Watson, tragically lost their lives on Friday 24 March 2017. Our first thoughts are with their families and friends at this difficult time.
We are a very close knit community so the devastating loss of these two lovely young men, who had so much to live for, will have a huge impact on both students and staff. They were both very positive members of our school team and we have very fond memories of them. Our on-site counsellors and pastoral team will be available to offer support to students and staff.
In order to show our respect we have planned to hold a moment of silent reflection on Monday 27 March 2017 in memory of Alex and Harry. Staff and students will have an opportunity to write about their happiest memories of Alex and Harry in a book of remembrance for each of the boys.
Kurtis and Archie are leading our Academy Council’s campaign to win the Mayor’s Environmental Shield. The shield will be awarded to the school that has demonstrated significant improvements to their school environment.
In February a group of Year 7 and Year 9 students travelled to Disneyland Paris to meet representatives from some of the UK and Europe’s biggest companies.
Students are asked to make a £1 donation and all of the proceeds will be donated to Comic Relief.
