Ypres trip - 3/4 July 2015

It is with great regret that we have had to postpone the Ypres trip that was due to travel on the 3rd of July and return on the 4th of July.  After much consideration, we have taken the decision based on the current issues around Dover/Calais Port.  The tour company could not give any guarantees on being able to get to Calais or return due to the blockade to the Channel ports.

Students will be a given letter today to bring home, giving further information.

Parents/carers can now access Year 9 reports via Moodle.  Please click on Moodle and then go to ‘Moodle Help’ for more details.

Donation of Academy Uniform – Parents/Carers of Year 11

As your child approaches the end of Year 11, you may be wondering what to do with their uniform. Some students may wish to keep it as a memento of their time here the Milton Keynes Academy and others may wish to pass it on to their younger siblings.

 If, however, you have no further use for your child’s uniform after they have completed their final exam, we would be extremely grateful if you would consider donating it to the Academy. Whilst we will of course be grateful for any uniform donations, we would kindly ask that uniform is still in a good, wearable condition (and ideally washed).

 By donating your child’s uniform, you will be enabling us to help other parents/carers with the purchase of uniform in the future, as well as helping us to provide uniform to children who may be in need.

 We will keep a box in reception for students to place unwanted uniform.

Welcome to The Milton Keynes Academy

Milton Keynes Academy is still the fastest improving school in Milton Keynes in 2014. Team MKA is going from strength to strength, achieving a further increase in higher grades at GCSE in summer 2013. Principal Dara Carroll is delighted with the continual transformation and sees a bright future for the Academy.

“I am pleased to report to parents and prospective students that there is a very positive learning climate in the Academy, students are happy and working hard and we have recruited top practitioners to create a formidable staff team capable of delivering the high standards the children deserve. We continue to be the most improved school in Milton Keynes in 2014 and I predict another step forward in performance this year “

Exam results 2014

Key Stage 4 Attainment

There was a great deal of change in the way results were calculated this year, with Ofsted and the DfE agreeing that it is unfair to compare the 2014 results with previous years. Nonetheless, The Academy was delighted with the high numbers of students making expected progress or better in English, and Mathematics . For the first time ever, this proportion was above the MK average and national average for both these subjects. In addition, in relation to value added progress measures, the Academy was celebrating the outcome in Science, which placed the school in the top 6% of school nationally.

Updates to The Curriculum

We are committed to developing a modern world-class curriculum that inspires and challenges all learners and prepares them for life and work in the 21st century, having a balance of knowledge and skills.

 The curriculum should enable all young people to become:

successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve

confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives

responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society

 The curriculum is driven by the needs of our learners and therefore has ‘moral purpose’.  There is a good balance between academic and vocational subjects and clear progression routes.
