Jack Petchey Awards Ceremony 2019

The ‘2019 Haringey Schools Jack Petchey Achievement Awards Presentation Evening’ took place on Monday 10th June 2019 at The Bernie Grants Arts Centre. It was a fantastic evening celebrating the achievements of students across the borough. The Jack Petchey Achievement Award is given to a pupil from each year who demonstrates enthusiasm and determination in lesson or outside of the classroom. They don't need to be the most academic, rather somebody who contributes positively to the school environment. There were 7 APS students from KS3,4 and 5 there to receive their awards.
 
Ms. Cannon was also present to receive her Jack Petchey Leader Award having been nominated by students at APS for her excellent teaching.
 
Congratulations to all the winners.

Pompeii Trip 2018

Mr Short and Mr Bonham-Carter recently took Year 11 classics students on a very successful trip to Pompeii. Below are comments from some of the students involved:

The trip was relaxing but yet fast paced and energetic at the same time. We wasted no time in the beautiful ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii and saw everything we could have hoped to have seen in the time we had. We also got an educational commentary on the sights from Mr Bonham-Carter and Mr Short who I’m sure had an insightful time also. Not just educational but also highly enjoyable as Naples provided us with the best pizza that we have ever tasted and a picturesque view from the Bay.Daniel, 11X

It had been a week of rain and gloom in England and I think just about everyone was missing the heat and fun of the summer, there couldn’t have been a better time to jump on a plane (albeit the crack of dawn), and fly to the sunny, beautiful Amalfi coast. The days were jam packed indulging in both the rich history of Herculaneum and Pompeii and huge amounts of pizza, pasta and ice cream. What's more we had the amazing experience of swimming in the Bay of Naples during a stunning sunset after a warm and chock-a-block day visiting Pompeii and the beautiful Sorrento. A brilliant weekend that made returning to the cold and raining London with tonnes of homework and revision just that much more depressing.Flo, 11X
