55th Anniversary of David Nieper Limited
Our students performed a professional dance piece at the 55th Anniversary Event of David Nieper Limited, which was held at Chatsworth on Thursday 3rd November. A group of our student leaders also attended the event – they were all fantastic ambassadors for the academy.
So recently, David Nieper was featured on the East Midlands Today broadcast about the opening of our new Academy and what it will mean for our students, with the help of our Governor Christopher Neiper and The David Nieper Education Trust.
Watch the East Midlands Today broadcast here.
Monday 10th October 2016 will be an INSET day. The Academy will be closed to all students for the day.
Summer School 2016
During the summer holidays students, who have recently joined us as new Year 7s, enjoyed an actioned packed week at summer school.
The aim of summer school is to provide new experiences which are fun, challenging and which help our students get to know one another and to take part in team building activities.
The week helps to ensure the transition from Primary to Secondary school goes as smoothly as possible.
The activities for the week, were…
Monday The Mill Adventure Base – canoeing and team building
Tuesday Ski Centre – skiing, tobogganing and tubing
Wednesday Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Thursday The Mill Adventure Base – tunnelling, low ropes and teambuilding
Friday Drayton Manor Park
All students had a great time – have a look at some of the wonderful photos included.
