What is The Cheadle Academy? What is its ethos? What is its approach to learning? Do learners make good progress, are they challenged, supported, rewarded, happy? Just some of the questions asked by visitors to last year's Open Evening. They found the answers and more! And you will too.
Be prepared! Come to The Cheadle Academy's Open Evening prepared to take part in student and staff led activities. Come with a list of questions, and we'll do our best to answer them. Be prepared to be caught up in the excitement demonstrated by our students who will be proud to include you and your family and friends in their interactive displays!
Come with an open mind. This is a forward thinking, progressive and highly inclusive Academy that seeks to meet the many needs of individual students as they journey through exceptionally important phases in life. It's about meeting and exceeding one's academic potential, getting in touch with the best possible route for progression and about being prepared for the real world of work. It's about feeling safe and secure; it's about providing opportunities to experience a broad range of extra-curricular activities. In short, it's about receiving the best, holistic education possible. And it's right here at The Cheadle Academy, in the heart of the community of Cheadle.
We look forward to welcoming you on Wednesday 24th September.
Friday 26th September marked the official launch of The Cheadle Academy’s A Poetry Competition for The Staffordshire Moorlands.
The Cheadle Academy was delighted that Michael Collis from the Royal British Legion was able to join students on the occasion of the launch. Mr Collis has a wonderful knowledge of the Cheadle War poet Charles Masefield, who has inspired the Poetry competition.
Also present were students who will be leading a Poetry Workshop for students from partner Primary Schools, as part of their commitment to honour commemoration of World War I. Selected by The Cheadle Academy's English and History Departments, the students will plan and deliver the Workshop that will take place in October.
Cadet Hope Swann also attended as she was one of the cadets who had represented The Cheadle Academy and her Cadet Unit at the town's Service of Commemoration and Medal Ceremony in August, earlier this year.
The Cheadle Academy is hosting a Poetry Competition as part of its programme of events commemorating the First World War. This is a competition that will involve the whole community, with all five categories open to people living in The Staffordshire Moorlands.
The overarching theme is ‘Remembering . . . The First World War’ and poems can be written in any style, of any length, may be combined with artwork should you wish, and be about any aspect of life 1914-1918; the lives of those at home and those who fought so bravely elsewhere.
Categories are: KS2, KS3, KS4, 17-25, Community (open to any age). Entries may reach us through primary/secondary schools, where appropriate, or poems may sent/delivered to The Cheadle Academy. All entries must be accompanied by an official entry form, downloadable from our website or available from The Cheadle Academy, The Heritage Centre or Cheadle Town Council Offices. The closing date is Wednesday 29th October, 2014.
Winning entries will be read at a special Concert of Commemoration on Wednesday 12th November, at The Cheadle Community Theatre. Winning and highly commended entries will be displayed at The Cheadle Academy throughout the remainder of November and will go on to feature as an important part of a permanent exhibition commemorating World War I at The Heritage Centre at Lulworth House, Cheadle, and becoming a very important part of our Community's history.
'We know not, But we know that every hour
We must shine brighter, take an edge more keen'
from 'Two Julys' by Charles John Beech Masefield.
A fitting metaphor for life but one made most poignant as it came from the pen of Cheadle’s World War I poet Charles Masefield. Masefield compares his life before and during the war. He was killed in action, after receiving the Military Cross for gallantry.
