Over the weekend Ellie Smith entered the Under 16 Welsh championships in NFAS (National Field Archery Society) and won. Ellie has now won the under 16 Welsh championships and the under 16 English championships. A huge well done Ellie.
Friday 12th July 2019 saw our third star student event, where students attended a high teas event in the small atrium. The event was put on in recognition of the students hard work and commitment to withholding the Academy’s high standards within all aspects of learning throughout the half term.
To qualify for the event the students needed to receive multiple 1’s on their report from staff, which reflects the excellent effort they have demonstrated throughout all subjects. The students who were invited also took home a certificate and letter to show their parents.

On Friday June 21st, Year 7 students participated in a Reading for Pleasure workshop run by Seven Stories in Newcastle. Students had the opportunity to discuss their reading preferences, as well as spend some time looking and engaging with a range of books, many of which have now been purchased for our school library. Everyone enjoyed the day, including Molly from Seven Stories, who said: “I thoroughly enjoyed visiting year 7 at Freebrough Academy. The staff at the school were organised and really welcoming, the children’s enthusiasm and respectful behaviour made my day a real pleasure!”
We look forward to more reading events in the autumn term
