Sybil Andrews Academy is very pleased to announce that we have now completed the first stage of our Artsmark journey and have successfully joined the Artsmark community!
A previous winner of a national teacher of the year award has been appointed as the new interim headteacher at Sybil Andrews Academy.
Trenica King has spoken of her excitement at starting at the Bury St Edmunds school after Easter while the recruitment process for a new permanent headteacher gets underway.
We are delighted to have welcomed Alfie Carpenter into school as our Artist in Residence, to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Bury Arts Society. Alfie has worked alongside a group of students to respond to their view of Suffolk and the school community.
Some of our Year 8 Art students took part in an Art project set by Smiths Row to commeorate the 25th Anniversay of Sybil Andrews death and the opening of Bury St Edmunds railway station. Students were invited to think about how railway posters were used to attract tourists to towns and cities and produce a design to promote Bury St Edmunds.
We had the pleasure of welcoming into school with us some students and their teachers who were visiting from a performing arts school in Shanghai. Our Language Leaders spent some time showing the students around to help them experience what life in a British School is like. Whilst visiting, the students also took part in various activities including teaching us some Mandarin and taking part in a British-Chinese Performing Arts activity.
