We are very proud of our Academy and believe Tower Road Academy is a ‘great’ place for Primary age children to live, laugh and learn in the 21st Century.

As an Academy, specialising in Sports and Performing Arts, we are always looking at ways to develop and create new exciting opportunities for all our children to enjoy and be inspired to continue their education and extra curriculum interests long after they have left Tower Road! 

We offer a warm welcome to new parents and their children as well as continuing to build strong relationships with our existing families—together we can achieve anything at Tower Road Academy!

Mrs J. French, Headteacher     /      Mr S. Horniblow, Chairman of Governors.

Swimming 'Gold' for third consecutive year at county

 

County Finals: Swimming 2015

 

 

 

Once again we were representing the Boston area in both the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 swimming competitions. Both teams were 12 strong (6 boys and 6 girls) and were facing seven other teams from all over the County.

 

There were an array of different races to take part in.

 

The event started with a Y3/4 motorbike race (a knotted woggle!)They came 8th but it was only the start!

 

The events unrolled and the atmosphere got louder! The excitement grew! There were individual breaststroke, freestyle and backstroke races as well as medley and freestyle relays and a shark relay (where a float is held between the legs!) The Y5/6 had several wins which all helped towards their score!

 

By lunchtime break the Y5/6 were in first place! The Y3/4 were in eighth place.

 

After the lunch break. The afternoon warm up started. Then the next round of races started.

 

Butterfly, 50m back stroke, 50m freestyle, as well as the final ‘ball’ relay races. Where the swimmers had to swim with a ball using the polo drill! This was a real success with our teams!

 

In the final results The Year 3/4s came in 7th place. With the Year 5/6 teams: 7th Claythorpe, 6th Bourne, 5th Branston, 4th Parish, 3rd St Hughes, 2nd St Micheals with 122 points and 1st Tower Road with 132 points!!

 

A brilliant win. This is the 3rd year that this team have won Gold at Level 3. What an achievement!!

 

Many, many thanks to Brendan Clark for managing and organising both teams at the water’s edge and Mrs Kiss for supporting and organising the teams on the poolside, as well as to the other parents who travelled to help and support both teams.

 

It was a great day, a great atmosphere and made even more special with bringing back the Gold cup!

Behind The Scenes In Year 6

Behind The Scenes In Year 6
Unique, one of a kind – just a few ways to describe the awesome Year 6 Study Centre at Tower Road Academy. Year 6 here has a unique system compared to other primary schools. It provides children with: a variety of privileges, opportunities, responsibilities and an outstanding learning environment. Would you like to take a peek behind the scenes to find out more about this exclusive, land of opportunities where there is never a dull moment?

Organisation of the Year 6 Study Centre
Like no other school, the Year 6 Study Centre has: its own exclusive entrance, pigeon holes and an amazing large room. Even if all 90 children are in this room, everyone can sit and work comfortably. There are cinema-style seats round the corners of the room with tables for children to work on. In the centre of the room are folding tables with padded chairs. Normally pupils would have their own classroom, but in Year 6, to get pupils ready for secondary school, pupils change rooms nearly every hour. Children can work in either the spacious, main study room or the two adjacent rooms. Pupils are organised into four tutor groups: Challenge, Vision, Ambition and Vision. If you do good work, your teacher – tutor – gives you a tutor point.



Responsibilities
To prepare for secondary school, the Year 6 children have to be responsible. Instead of using reading folders, children are given sophisticated, ‘hook on your shoulder’ briefcases. Since the pupils have all their own belongings, they have their own pigeon holes which are adjacent to the classrooms. These pigeon holes, which are just like lockers at secondary school, are made for: briefcases, folders and art books. Pupils are responsible for: using the homework station to hand homework in on time; looking after their own briefcase and making sure their own pigeon hole is tidy.

Opportunities
While pupils are in Year 6, they have numerous opportunities. The most popular is the trip to Crystal Palace, in London, where they spend five days exploring London and using the unique sports facilities this site offers. The pantomime – which Year 6 all have the chance to take part in – is absolutely the best pantomime ever. Unlike other year groups, Year 6 are allowed to come into school early (8.30am) to draw, read or talk to friends. When someone is being helpful or trying hard in their work, they could be chosen for ‘Star of the Week’ and take a trophy home.
In summary, hopefully this has given you an idea of what life in Year 6 is like. This is one of the many things that make Tower Road Academy a great place to send your child.
