Djanogly School enjoy a match from the box at Forest!

Monday, April 25th, 2016

19th April 2016, 6 year 11 students watched Nottingham Forest draw 1v1 with Blackburn Rovers in a private box. The students were an absolute credit to the Academy and conducted themselves like mature young adults. The chief hospitality steward commented on how well our students behaved, he stated ‘I was apprehensive about your Djanogly students arriving but they were better behaved than any other school we’ve had’.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Aquinas for organising this fantastic prize for the students, this is the first time any of our students have been rewarded with this sort of trip and they were very excited about it!

Year 11 MyMaths competition.

This term the Maths department have been running a homework competition using the online resource MyMaths. Year 11 students have been set approximately 60 tasks each based on their weak areas assessed in their last GCSE mock, with the challenge set of achieving close to 100% on their individualised work.

The students who are successful in this will be going into a draw in April to win a number of prizes ranging from tickets to sporting fixtures (kindly donated by our supply agency) and also a star prize of an android tablet paid for by the staff in the Maths department.

A huge well done to the Year 11 students, the response has been superb and so far most students have on average completed around half of their tasks at the time of writing this article. We issued an early prize for some students who made an early start on the activities: Well done to Luke Want, William Newsham-Kent, Jacob Shepherd and Demi-Louise Walters who got to see Forest Vs Huddersfield in an executive box for their efforts.

 Thank you to yourself and to The Aquinas Foundation for supporting us with this prize. It is much appreciated by the school and was much appreciated by the students.
