"Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." Michael Jordan NBA 14 time All-Star
At Cecil Jones we strive to ensure that each student can achieve and expand their potential.
In order for all our students to be able to learn, feel safe and happy at the Academy we expect all students to maintain the highest standards. As Year 9 students it is of paramount importance that you follow the school Code of Conduct, maintain a high standard of attendance and be committed to your learning. Model exemplary behaviour for the younger students, be people they can look up too. Treat each other and the people around you with respect, kindness and courtesy. Every day be punctual, arrive with the correct equipment, be ready to learn and be the best version of you.
This is the most important year in your academic career so far. You are now young adults and we expect you to be proactive about your future. For the first time you will be able to choose which subjects you want to study through the option process. Year 9 lays the foundations that will enable you to be successful at KS4 and pursue whatever future aspirations you may have. In order to maximise the opportunities available to you, ensure you are in the ‘right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.’
As Achievement Team Leader I am responsible for the learning and achievement for all students within the year group. I am looking forward to celebrating your academic success and hope to be regularly awarding each and every one of you with letters, certificates and prizes for outstanding work and for having positive attitudes towards your studies. I want our Year group to have the highest attendance and be the most highly commended at the Academy.
As always, the dedicated Year Care Team and form tutors are there to provide additional support and guidance if needed. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any issues or concerns.
