Bryan Adams Picnic event
A huge thank you to the Bryan Adams Foundation who named Chelsea Academy one of three beneficiaries for their Evening of Opera and Picnic at the Royal Hospital Chelsea fundraising event. The evening was a great success and a number of Chelsea Academy students, including many of our music scholars, were lucky enough to attend and enjoy the event.
Brunel University fund additional Saturday school for Chelsea Academy year 11 students
Twenty five of our most able Year 10 students have been attending Saturday school as part of the Brunel Urban Scholars’ Satellite Scheme (funded by Brunel University and John Lyon’s Charity) over the last two years. The scheme was due to end this July but Brunel University has agreed to include the Chelsea Academy group for 2016-17 which will help the students expand their knowledge and grow further in confidence. Polly Goss, the most able co-ordinator, believes that this offer was made due to the exemplary behaviour and enthusiasm shown by the Academy students when attending the workshops at Brunel. We continue to be grateful for Brunel University’s support.
Garfield Weston Funding
The Chelsea Academy Foundation is delighted to announce that our bid to the Garfield Weston Foundation has been successful and the Academy has received £5,000 to use towards the extended curriculum and enrichment program. This program offers our students opportunities to try activities in areas such as sports, drama, dance and music. We are very grateful for the continued support of the Garfield Weston Foundation.
Star of the Month again!
Another Star of the Month award (4 in a row!) for our students, from Brunel University, as part of the Brunel Urban Scholars Satellite Project.
Second year of funding secured from John Lyon’s Charity
Chelsea Academy Foundation is very excited to announce that we have secured a second of year of funding from John Lyon’s Charity for our Brunel Urban Scholar’s Satellite Project. Over a 3 year period 50 of our most able students will access additional workshops in English and Maths, listen to motivational speakers, meet with Brunel University students and get the opportunity to work with students from other secondary schools. The aim of the project is to encourage students to apply to Russell group universities.
