Great work everyone!
On Friday 25th March, Ercall Wood Academy students were privileged to host Captain Preet Chandi, who recently became the first woman of colour to travel to the South Pole!

We'd like to thank Captain Chandi for taking the time to visit and talk with our students, and showing that with high aspirations, determination and respect, we can achieve anything.
Wishing health and happiness to you and all those celebrating Ramadan in the Ercall Wood Academy community. Ramadan Kareem.
Year 8 Ercall Wood Academy students have recently completed their Maths assessments based on sequences.

Below are two pictures of work by students that achieved 100%! Another example of how high aspirations lead to incredible success.
We are pleased to announce that, with your help, Ercall Wood Academy has raised £4375.55 during charities week!

This amazing amount has been donated to our four charities: Macmillan, Prevent ALL, Severn Hospice and Comic Relief.

Thank you all for your amazing support!
On Friday 18th March, Ercall Wood Academy students took part in ‘The Colour Run,’ and raised an incredible amount of money for charity.

Students had to navigate their way over, under, and through the obstacle course laid out on the school field by the P.E department. Thank you to everyone who made this event so much fun!
Ercall Wood Academy students and staff have been working extremely hard behind the scenes on the this year's production of ‘Oliver!’.

We will be holding three performances in the main hall on Tuesday 5th, Wednesday 6th, and Thursday 7th April, with doors opening at 6:30pm ready for a 7pm showtime!

Tickets are £5 for adults, £3 for children and concessions (65+).

Tickets are available through Scopay or from the Performing Arts office. If you have any issues, please contact Miss Bowater.
At the end of every day at Ercall Wood Academy, students leave the building in a calm and purposeful manner.

Mr Gummery, along with academy staff, join students at the gate to say goodbye, and ensure they leave the site safely.

Respectful routines like this allow us to strengthen our community identity, and helps students learn important values, which they can take forward into later life.
The theme for last week's Year 11 assembly focused on aspirations, and emphasised to students the importance of hard work in order to achieve their very best.

Mrs Fraser used the website EDUCAKE to demonstrate the progress students have made in Science, in preparation for their assessments.

The following 5 students have answered 6790 questions between them using EDUCAKE this year!

Year 11 – Joel
Year 10 - Evan
Year 9 - Grace
Year 8 – Emily
Year 7 – Bethany

Keep up the great work everyone!
Ercall Wood Academy students have been working on their creative writing skills, which has enabled them to unleash their imaginations and express themselves in ways which harness their own interests, like this fantastical short story by Katie from Year 11.

This story channels Greek myth and nods towards the fantasy worlds of Ursula Le Guin.

Ercall Wood Academy is proud to be the heartbeat of the community we serve, we want our students to

Ercall Wood Academy recently played host to two excellent Netball events.

Firstly an LCT Netball fixture against Ludlow School for our U13/14/15 age categories, and secondly the annual Winter League, which took place in some pretty foggy conditions!

All our teams played exceptionally well and did the academy proud. Great work girls!

The Anti-violence Bee is the first UK sculpture to be made entirely from knives and fi****ms. It is visiting schools, community hubs, and town centres in the hope to educate and raise awareness of the dangers of carrying weapons.

Ercall Wood Academy students had the opportunity to get a closer look at this powerful sculpture during their break time when it visited the academy two weeks ago.

Students recently had the opportunity to take part in two professional dance workshops.

Year 9 boys were visited by Malachi from Boy Blue Dance Company, who introduced the group to the foundations of Street Dance and the Hip Hop Groove.

We were also delighted to welcome Flexus Dance Collective into the academy, who taught our Year 9 & 10 students a dance piece taken from their current tour 'All About The Fight'.

All our students worked extremely hard and were a credit to the academy!

Here we have Mr Rogers and 3 members of the band, Lucy (Yr. 8) on Electric Guitar, Louie (Yr. 9) on vocals, and Fionn (Yr. 10) on the drums, rocking out to ‘Hall Of Fame’ in a recent rehearsal; a fitting song for our aspiring music students.

Bullying affects millions of lives and can leave us feeling hopeless. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it.

Anti-Bullying Week is designed to remind everyone, whether it’s in the academy, at home, in the community or online, the importance of reaching out and supporting each other.

A group of Ercall Wood Academy students were approached by the events team for The World Tennis Tour, tasked with creating a display out of old, recycled and damaged tennis balls to be used at the W100 Shrewsbury.

Ercall Wood Academy is extremely proud of Marina, Libby, and Seren for reaching the Junk Kouture 2022 British finals.

Their catwalk outfit received some wonderful comments from the judges, including these from fashion designer Fabio Piras, “Little Red Riding Hood 1950s sends us back to an age of innocence. It has an element of nostalgia, of fairytale, of childhood. It's about responsibility and of second chances with opportunities that we have, that maybe we could bring back or save whatever we have left. It is a form of commentary on global emergency."

Well done girls, a very poignant subject matter.

These 2 young men shared a desire to serve their country and make their families proud.

Separated by nearly one hundred years of history their stories share much similarity, the only difference is that young Cyrus took time to write a letter his parents hoped never to read.

Ercall Wood Academy students will hear their stories during Remembrance Week in assemblies.

Two talented Ercall Wood Academy History students, Olivia and Zeba, have just completed a task evaluating the usefulness of a very simple picture of some coins found in York.

They were able to use this evidence as the starting point for some brilliant analysis of the Vikings and how they managed to travel so far around the world. Outstanding work!

The Ercall Wood Academy Year 8 boys' and girls' football teams enjoyed amazing success recently by reaching the third round of The National Cup.

While the girls defeated NGHS with a 2-0 scoreline, the boys came out on top in a five-goal-thriller against Shelfield Academy. Well done everyone!

Two members of the Royal Navy recently visited Ercall Wood Academy to work with 21 Year 10 students in completing a cookery challenge.

Teams were given identical recipe cards and ingredients and challenged to make a lasagne and chocolate brownies, which were then judged. Students were encouraged to work as part of a team and to communicate with each other throughout.

After the cookery challenge the students heard a talk and watched a number of video clips which explained life in the Royal Navy, job opportunities, and the recruitment process.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and some of the tasty food they created can be seen below.
