Great Bushey Bake-Off 2019

For the last three Wednesday afternoons, delicious smells have permeated the Academy as the food classroom has been host to THE GREAT BUSHEY BAKE OFF.  In true  ‘bake off’  style, Year 8 contestants were challenged in 3 rounds – Signature Bake, Technical Challenge and Showstopper – which they all accepted with great enthusiasm and skill.

Star Bakers were:

K Taylor (signature cup cake)

K Williams (Technical Challenge – Viennese Fingers)

S Turner (Showstopper)

and the overall winner of the Great Bushey Bake Off 2019 was Katie Taylor.

A huge ‘Well done!’ to all the bakers who demonstrated so much creativity, determination and fun in every round.

Sixth Form Student Completes Work Placement at Saatchi and Saatchi

“Before this placement, I had almost no understanding of what working in the creative industry entailed, let alone the variety of jobs available in single company. Working in M&C Saatchi I was exposed to how difficult the advertising industry truly is, and the number of people it takes to develop a client’s objective into an easy to understand advertisement.

I partook in variety of different tasks over the course of 5 days, from sitting in on a real meeting discussing creative tissue ideas, to visiting actual sound studios, to presenting a strategy brief.I learnt many transferable skills such as how to present to a group of people, and how to manage time effectively in order to meet client deadlines.
The work was challenging, often beyond my comfort zone, but nevertheless, an experience that I am grateful to have had, and would gladly do again. “

The Brilliant Club

Pupils in Year 10 and 12 took part in The Brilliant Club Scholars Programme which involved attending a launch trip at King’s College University followed by 7 tutorials delivered by a PhD tutor on their specialism. Year 10 students were learning about the science behind when we start to feel pain whilst Year 12 studied Politics and voting trends in society. 
All students successfully completed the programme by submitting a written assignment based on the information they had gathered in the tutorials alongside further research they had carried out. 
We are extremely proud of all the students that took part and the results were amazing! To celebrate the achievements pupils attended a Graduation event held at St Anne’s College, Oxford University.
