Theatre Visit – A Christmas Carol

In a blink of an eye our Year 11s are a term through their final year of GCSEs.  In readiness for their English Literature GCSE, and preparation for their Mock examinations all Year 11 attended an adaptation of A Christmas Carol.  The performance was held at Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham on Tuesday 26th November.  The show presented an excellent portrayal of Charles Dickens’ classic Victorian novel that explores the importance of family and being charitable to those in need.

Careers Fair 2019

This year the Matrix Academy Trust Annual Careers Fair was bigger than ever before, with over 80 visitors giving up their time to meet our pupils. During the fair, pupils were able to engage with a range of employers, universities, apprenticeship providers, colleges and training providers.

Visitors came from all over the country, with universities as far-reaching as Belfast, and the careers represented at the Fair spanned a variety of fields such as healthcare, engineering, construction, the forces, hairdressing, the police, technology, defence, funeral care and the civil service. Many visitors were from key employers that reflect the changing needs of the local labour market.

CCF Flying Experience

Twenty cadets from Bloxwich Academy Combined Cadet Force participated in their fly experience days at RAF Cosford in September.

The day consisted of learning basic parachute drills and how to escape the plane in the event of an emergency. This was further complemented with a 30-minute flight in a Grob G 115 tutor aircraft where the cadets were allowed to take control and fly the aircraft. Some of the cadets took the opportunity to perform some aerial stunts and manoeuvres to enhance the day’s experience.

Even though there were a couple of sick bags and grey faces I think everyone who flew had a great time.
