• Girls Cricket

    Under 13s & 15s Cricket

    Yesterday we attended a tournament at Radcliffe Cricket Club. The girls conducted themselves very well, behaved impeccably and played some really good cricket. Out of the 5 games played by both teams (u13s and u15s) each team won one game each, both wins coming against Newark Academy. Other games came very close only losing by a few runs. Please congratulate the girls below on a very successful day (the weather definitely helped)

  • Student Librarian Training Complete!

    Congratulations to all our Student Librarians for completing their training

    After six Wednesday Lunchtime training sessions, our lovely Year 7 student librarians, have been awarded their shiny new badges and a certificate for their hard work. All our student librarians now know how to process books, find particular books in our huge library and navigate the non fiction section. To celebrate their success and newly elevated position the students created their own summer display for us in the Learning Lounge. We are so proud of them all!

    Well Done!

  • Meet our new Library Assistant!

    Kyle joins the library team

    After a long wait, interview and trial shift, the library team are very pleased to welcome Kyle, Year 8, as the new Library Assistant.

    The Hive is a fantastic resource at Newark Academy. With over 10,000 books for students to borrow and a range of board and card games to play, there's plenty to keep people busy during break and lunch times. Kyle really enjoys spending time in The Hive and was keen to work there so that he can help his peers find what they are looking for.

    Unfortunately, when he first enquired, there were no available positions so he was placed on a waiting list. When ...

  • Cricket Success

    MCCF Nottingham Hub

    Yesterday was the opening game of the season for the Nottingham Hub U15 side, as they played an U15 XI at Nottingham High School:

    MCCF Nottingham Hub 106 (29 overs)

    Nottingham High School 103 (29 overs)

    MCCF Hub won by 3 runs.

    A last over thriller which featured some impressive and significant performances from the trio of Djanogly boys who played.

    Fardeen Ahmed bowled some very tight overs in the middle of the innings to restrict and build pressure on the opposition. He also 'banged the drum' all innings to keep his team focused and motivated in the field - What a fantastic ...

  • Brilliant Books

    'Brilliant Books' have another fantastic term of activities planned for some of our budding writers.

    We all know that books are brilliant – all staff and students read at NFS on a daily basis – but nowhere is this more obvious than during one of our weekly enrichment activities. During ‘Brilliant Books’, a group of year 7 pupils are visited by a different guest each week who talks to them about their career and why reading is important to them on a personal and professional level. Guests recently have included local MP Chris Leslie, ex-professional footballer Tony Lormor and Dr Paul Beardsley, a principal research scientist from Disney’s research laboratories in Zurich.

    In addition to...
