Whole School Fun Run

The Fun Run is a fundraising event for the PE department and any funds raised will go towards improving current facilities or buying new equipment. Fun Run money has paid for the outdoor table tennis tables, new athletics vests, the bowling machine, trampolines, refurbishing the weights room and more.

Students pay a £2 entry fee into the race which will cover their non-uniform for the day, their medal as well as entry into the best costume competition. Students have also been given sponsorship forms to try and get friends or relatives to sponsor them in the run.

All students will report to their afternoon registration at 1.40 and be dismissed from school at 2.00 p.m.

Whole School 'Alleyne's Readers' Event

Alleyne’s Readers’ is the largest club in our academy, including every single member of the Thomas Alleyne community. This annual school-wide reading project is part of our continual drive to share our love of reading across the school.

This year, we are going to focus on the author Michael Morpurgo, and the students will be spending time later this week choosing which book they would like to read from the following selection:

 The Mozart Question

 Private Peaceful

 War Horse

 Alone on a Wide Wide Sea

Each of these books focuses on an aspect of either WW1 or WW2 and their reading of their chosen book will form the basis of our ‘Alleyne’s Readers’ event on Friday 9th November. On this day, we will be collapsing our curriculum during lessons 3, 4 and 5 and the students will work in their tutor groups to engage in a wide range of activities based on the theme of conflict.

The students will also be spending a number of sessions during tutor time over the coming weeks focusing on many aspects of their reading. This will include learning more about the experiences of those affected by the world wars, the impact of conflict and resolution and about Morpurgo himself. His uncle, Francis Cammaerts, is a former head teacher of The Thomas Alleyne Academy, and this will give us a chance to discover more about the heritage of our wonderful school too.

Year 11 PGL Revision Weekend

We would like to invite your child to take part in this unique opportunity to learn and prepare for their summer exams.

The weekend will consist of revision sessions run by TAA staff punctuated with fun activities centred on team working, confidence building and resilience, organised by PGL. We will have experienced colleagues going along to help our students use revision techniques that are both new and familiar to them. Our aim is for each student to leave PGL with a new toolkit of ideas to succeed in exams and the confidence to deal with the challenges they will face in the Summer term.
