The Q3 Academies Trust has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2016 and benefits from even more opportunity through cross-Academy collaboration.
As you read through this latest edition of FoQus I am sure you will agree that it is a wonderful reminder of daily life in our Academies. From the overseas trips, to the cadet experiences, sporting activities and the exhilarating ethos and immersive weeks, all of which contribute to the rich opportunities supporting our students in their academic and personal development.
I continue to be impressed with our GCSE and A-Level students, who are currently preparing for their summer examinations. Our staff are giving generously of their time to provide additional support before and after the Academy day and during holiday periods; I am extremely grateful for their commitment to the students.
Student voice is a powerful aspect of both Academies; our young people are confident, articulate and determined to make a difference, not only to their own destiny but also to the lives of those who may be less fortunate.
Aspiration flows through our Academies in abundance. I am fortunate to be able to share in the ambitions of our students, every day I hear their plans for life beyond Q3 and their drive to be the very best.
I would like to thank our PACT groups who work tirelessly to raise funds for our children at both sites, providing extra resources to support the curriculum and enrichment activities.
In the words of Winston Churchill:
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
Every day I see my colleagues going the extra mile for our children and giving all that they can to support their progress; I am privileged to work with a talented team of Staff, Governors, Sponsor and Trustees who continue to inspire and change lives. Thank you team, for all that you do for our young people.
