Welcome to Ardley Hill

My door is always open, so please pop in for a chat and a coffee. I will be happy to answer your questions, show you around and discuss future plans.  I may even rustle up some biscuits. Alternatively, you can call me on 01582 667955 or email me at jsmith@ardleyhill.org.uk.  I hope to speak to you soon.

Welcome to to our new online newsletter!

This space is in place of our old paper newsletter.  The idea is we can more regularly update sections of this without having to bombard you with emails.

Please email in with any suggestions for things that can go in this space.

Lovely to see a few of you attend our recent consultation meeting.  A lively and productive debate about the changing face of education, the impact it is having more locally and more specifically at Ardley Hill.

I apologise for the horrendous photo of me in my 70’s gear that is circulating facebook, but I hope it helped remind you about our 50th celebrations, including the summer fete.

Site Manager of the year

I am so pleased to announce that after hundreds of applicants, passing through three stages of short listing and surpassing two other finalists, Dave Harper won the award for National Site Manager of the year!

It was such a proud moment to watch him take to the stage to receive this prestigious award from last years winner.

Well deserved.

Thank you to everyone for all the supporting nominations and comments.  A true unsung hero.  When you see him, make a fuss of him.

Welcome…

Alley Way Reminder

There has been a number of complaints with regards to Ardley Hill pupils riding their scooters & bikes in the alley way before & after school. This has resulted in children being hurt and even knocked over. May we kindly ask that your children refrain from riding bikes and scooters in the alley way during this time.

 

 

Parking Reminder

If you drive your child to and/or from school, could we please ask you to park with consideration around the Academy and neighbouring streets. Please also ensure that you do not park on the ‘School-Keep-Clear’ markings around the school entrances.  This includes the area in front of the car park gates. There should be NO stopping here at any time. Thank you for your consideration.

 

Harvest Festival

Harvest Festival will take place on Friday 18th October. Don’t forget to request tickets for grandparents!

For further dates for your diary, please see the calendar under the parents tab.
