Senior Awards Ceremony

Last night saw the Senior Awards Ceremony marked the end of the school year and our celebration of achievements for our senior pupils.  It is always inspiring to share some of the incredible things that our young people manage to do during the session.

Thank you to The Polar Academy’s, Luke Robertson for being Guest of Honour on the night.

The “unseasonably” bright night meant that our photograph didn’t quite turn out how we planned!

We would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of everyone, to wish you all a fantastic summer!

The next ten months will see our Polar Academy’s twenty strong Leadership and Expedition teams pulling together the 2020 expedition to Greenland.  The teams will be training hard, getting involved with fundraising and having lots of adventures!

We hope that you will be able to support the teams along the way, and we look forward to sharing our journey with you over the coming months.

Staffing Update, Session 2019-20

We would like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you and a fond farewell to all of our staff leaving at the end of term – we wish them all the very best in whatever opportunity they are moving on to.  Their contribution has been notable and they will be missed by the school and the wider school community.

Thank you to World Challenge for their help selling ice creams on such a hot day, with the Global Goals Group also raising funds to mark World Refugee Day.
