Remembrance Broadcast 2020-11-11
Thank you for your interest in Macmillan Academy. I hope that you will find this site useful and informative.
Thank you for your interest in Macmillan Academy. I am very privileged to be Principal of a thriving and happy community which offers students an engaging and rounded education that supports academic achievement but also develops the skills, knowledge and qualities needed to flourish in life, learning and work.
When Macmillan College opened in 1989 there was a clear brief to the leaders of the school that they were expected to ensure that students who attended must be well prepared for future employment. It was clear that if that were to happen, students had to achieve well academically and also develop a range of skills and attributes that could only come from getting involved in a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities.
There have been many achievements our students have made over the last 12 months, in a variety of different areas. It is important to remember the fantastic range of activities that our students can get involved in.
In looking back over the year, I hope you will all agree that there is an astonishing breadth of activity that our students can benefit from. This can only be made possible by the dedication and willingness of staff at the academy and I am very grateful to them for their continued commitment.
