Angelou wins 2020-21 house cup!
We celebrated the final day of the school year on Friday 16th July with assemblies celebrating our students’ achievements this half term, as well as awarding the 2021 Intrepidus Badge winners and announcing the winners of the 2021 House Cup.
The Intrepidus Badge is the highest accolade in the academy, awarded to just one boy and one girl in each year group at the end of each school year. Previous winners have included Yusra (13 Ibrahim) our current Deputy Head Girl, and Taif (12 Chaplin), the Deputy Youth Member of Parliament for RBKC. Students can be nominated for the award by any staff member, and Mr Benson then carefully selects the winners from this shortlist. A huge well done to those chosen at this year’s winners (see below) for showing dedication to their academic studies and extra curricular activities, as well as being fantastic ambassadors for the school and role models for their year groups.
During the assembly staff, students and governors enjoyed performances from the recent Performing Arts Showcase throughout the assembly. This included the school choir singing “Red” by Taylor Swift, the school band performing a cover of “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce, and a stunning pasadoble by year 12 student Julia with her dance partner.
The close of the assembly saw the much anticipated announcement of the winner of the 2020-2021 House Cup. After a historic first ever win at Sports Day, following a strong year in house competitions, attendance and merits, no other house could catch Angelou, who secured their second House Cup win in the school’s history. Well done Angelou!
