    Maths Challenge Success for Consett Academy as the Junior Maths Challenge moves online
    10th July 2020

    The Junior Maths Challenge is a national competition run by the UK Mathematics Trust and each year Consett Academy students in years 7 and 8 are selected to participate in this challenge. Usually, students complete a multiple choice set of questions on paper, but this year the challenge was moved online for the very first time. 43 of our students successfully participated in the challenge, and really did themselves and the school proud! Poppy L (Year 7) and Sam C (Year 8) performed particularly well and were awarded gold certificates. Congratulations also to the following students who were awarded silver and bronze certificates in the challenge: Silver certificates: Lily M, James T and Connor H in Year 7 and Caitlin M and Mackenzie T in Year 8. Bronze certificates: Charlotte L, Daniel W, Grace S, Erin L and Leah R-T in Year 7 and Karina LW, Matthew G, Matthew J, Paras Y and Iona T in Year 8. A huge well done to all the students who participated in the challenge online this year! Read More

    10th July 2020

    Since we’re approaching the end of term it’s time to have some FUN with chocolate! Did you know, on Wednesday 8th July three new Cadbury chocolate bars went on sale; Coconutty, Crunchy honeycomb and Out of the blueberry. Have you tried one yet? All bars were designed by Cadbury fans in their Inventor competition. You can vote for your favourite and even design your own bar here Find out how chocolate is made and read about the interesting history of chocolate and confectionary here Mrs Collins is curious to know what the overall favourite chocolate bar is at Consett Academy (any type or brand). She invites all staff and students to complete this survey by July 16th. In conjunction all students are welcome to join the Consett Academy chocolate factory by designing and building an edible structure made from chocolate and sweets. This can be anything from a simple shape to a more adventurous tower! We’d love to see your creations! Please share photos by email to your year manager or Mrs Collins directly For some inspiration and to learn about the link between chocolate welding, bridge building and the engineering industry watch this video.

  • School Perfomances - Thank You

    School Perfomances - Thank You
    10th July 2020

    And here we are, in our 5th year of shows in the new Academy. We've come such a long way and it's been amazing to see all of our students develop from performance to performance. Being a performer takes self-awareness, confidence, communication skills, humility and resilience. Time after time our students come in, rise to the challenge and raise the bar...and it's absolutely AMAZING! Centre Stage started in the early days of Consett Academy with 'Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' with a cast of 24 students. So when there are over 100 students turning up to auditions and rehearsals, we've come a very long way and it's all down to the enthusiasm of your children. We started this academic year off with 'Annie' - a childhood favourite of Ms Watts! Along with the amazing group of students, we completed our cast with Harvey (aka 'Sandy' the dog). It was really lovely to do a show that had its finale set at Christmas time being performed at Christmas time (Que: Lydia's rendition of 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing'!). I know the cast of 'We Will Rock You' can't wait to get rehearsals under way again and we're really looking forward to our next production after this brief (and unusual!) hiatus. Rest assured that the Academy will be filled with music and singing (and acting and dancing) after the 'hush' of the last 4 months. As always, the Music and Drama staff are indebted to our students and their supporters. Thank you so much for your unwavering enthusiasm - it is the lifeblood of our school. #musicaltheatre #letthemusicplay #artsmark #performingarts #music #schoolshow #wewillrockyou @artsmark Read More
