St Philip Neri 
He was born in Florence in 1515. At the age of eighteen he went to Rome, and earned his living as a tutor. He undertook much-needed charitable work among the young men of the city, and started a brotherhood to help the sick poor and pilgrims.
Yesterday was Founders Day when schools across the world celebrate John Baptiste De La Salle and the work he did.
As patron of teachers we decided to treat teachers for the excellent work they do - with cream tea!
Entries have just closed for the 'Design A Plate Competition'. Pupils had to choose their favourite book character, a poem or a quote and create a design for a plate.  The winners will be picked on the 22nd May with the first prize being the design reproduced on a plate made at Emma Bridgwater factory.
Today 11 of our students were recognised for good and positive deeds they they had done whilst in, or representing, the school. This recognition is awarded anonymously to a student who has performed in an exemplary manner which has been observed by a member of staff.
Zoe Crane, Nimmy James and Jacob Baskeyfield all were awarded Disctinction * grades in their BCS Level 2 ECDC Certificate in I.T. Applications Skills.
This is a high level of achievement and the Academy congratulates them on their excellence.
