Prom 2019

On Thursday 11th July at the beautiful grounds of Calderfields Golf Club, staff eagerly awaited the arrival of our Year 11 Prom guests. Students spent the evening snapping photos, watching some fire breathing in awe and even getting a self portrait drawn by our very talented caricaturist.

Once the sun had gone down our Prom King and Queen were announced, that then led into a party to end all parties with our DJ. A great night was had by all and it will certainly be one to remember, especially the live version of leadership baby shark…

Art & Textiles Exhibition 2019

Vibrant hues, hard-hitting topics, and personal voice are common themes in this year’s Fine Art and Textiles exhibition. The evening demonstrated an array of talent from a wide age range of pupils at Bloxwich Academy, showcasing work produced over the last year. The diversity of the work on show explored a variety of mediums executed with a high level of skill, and year 13 students demonstrated analytical thinking through their investigation of mature themes such as; slavery, domestic violence, the roles of women in society and entrapment to name but a few.

The evening was a huge success with plentiful comments from parents and staff complimenting pupils on the talent and hard work evidenced. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Art department staff for their hard work in presenting the showcase and pupils for their efforts and enthusiasm this year, we look forward to seeing the fruits of your labour in the summer.

Year 2 Botanical Gardens Trip

What an amazing adventure Year 2 have been on! 

The Year 2 teachers have had the pleasure of taking the children on a trip to the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham. It was a spectacular day and the children were wonderful. All of the staff were very proud of the children and how engaged they were with the lesson and the exploring of the grounds. We saw some wonderful plants, birds and even some fish.  There were so many colours it was just like walking through a rainbow forest.  

The children got to hear a parrot say “Hello!” and they even had a chance to see the ice age animals that were being set up around the gardens.  Everyone had a brilliant day.

Matrix Performing Arts Show

This year the prestigious Matrix Academy Trust performing arts show was held at Etone College. Ranging from all Key Stages with a mixture of both dance and drama performances. All academies came together to showcase their performances from after school clubs and exam pieces. The collaborative show gives pupils the opportunity to gain inspiration from their peers.

The Dance pieces crossed all genres of dance from Ballet to Body Locking. There were solo’s, duets and group pieces bringing different dimensions to the showcase. The Drama touched on sensitive issues but also brought humour to the proceedings. The audience gave such support to all performers which added to the brilliant atmosphere.

As always it was a pleasure to see all our schools from within the trust sharing their talents with one another and celebrating their successes. A huge well done to everyone involved.

Year 3/4 Football Stars

After winning their group in tremendous fashion, the Year 3/4 team reached the Walsall League final, where they faced the winners of the other group.

Unfortunately, we lost 1-0 to an incredible free-kick that was quite simply unstoppable. Nevertheless, the future looks bright for our Year 3/4 team if they can keep up the hard work and teamwork.

On behalf of all the staff and pupils at Bloxwich Academy, we would like to say a huge congratulations to our team for making us so proud. Their behaviour, attitude and teamwork was superb.

They also looked extremely smart in their lovely, new kits!
