Thursday 25 February 2016
The Curriculum Day on Thursday 25th February was another unique and enjoyable experience at Tuxford Academy. 
 
Years 7 and 8 experienced a unique theatre-production about the Tour de France and designed and created their own Arc de Triomphe as well as learning sign-language and braille.  Click here to find out more.
 
Year 9 were involved in ‘Enterprise Day’ and benefitted from  a number of external speakers with a focus on decision-making and economic planning. 
 
Year 10 had a whole-day of bespoke Science input 
 
Year 11 were able to gain valuable mock exam experiences in English and Maths in preparation for their Summer GCSE exams. 
 
Year 12/13 had access to a number of talks focused on stress management, financial management and revision techniques as well as a number of enrichment activities such as an A2 History trip to London, AS English trip to Howarth, AS Baklavor trip, AS/A2 Social Sciences trip to Nottingham Galleries of Justice and an AS/A2 London art trip. The students’ superb behaviour and engagement were commented upon by the external Enterprise Day providers and all the students thoroughly enjoyed their enrichment trips to London and elsewhere. Another, interesting and rewarding day at the Tuxford Academy.
