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.

Tower Road runners bring home 1st's !

 

Giles Academy Cross Country 2015

 

Monday 16th March saw the final cross country race of the season. Seven schools entered teams for the annual 1800m race at Giles Academy, Old Leake. We had entered 26 runners. 10 girls and 16 boys, with the majority being year 5.

After a warm up the girls’ race took place. The Tower Road girls started well and soon the girls had settled into places. There was a fantastic race to the end (where the girls had found the energy to sprint that last 40m was amazing!). In the end it was Boston West that took 1st and 2nd place with Emily in 3rd place. Felicity was 4th, Beth 5th, Katie H in 6th and Cerys 8th place. This gave the girls a team score of 18 points. There were about 40 girls racing.

Then it was the boys turn to race. Again they all started well. Then Anton and Joshua started to pull away from the group taking a few others with them. Anton led the way with Joshua on his shoulder and a Butterwick boy close behind. At the finish Joshua had sprinted past Anton and took 1st place. Anton 2nd, Butterwick 3rd, Eli 4th, Callum 5th and Sisa in 10th place. This gave the team a total score of 12 points. This meant that Joshua had came first in all three Cross Country races this year! A fabulous achievement! With Anton hot on his heels in second place. This race both they had their younger brothers running too. Callum, 5th place and a special mention must be made about Leo coming 23rd and only still in Year 3.

The team results were:- Girls’: 3rd place- Hawthorn Tree, 2nd place- Boston West and Tower Road in 1st place.                 Boys’: 3rd place- Boston West, 2nd place- Butterwick and in 1st place- Tower Road.

Many thanks to all the parents/grandparents who came to support the teams. Thank you to Giles students and Mr Bull for organising the races.

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.
