Martin Luther King Day

This week we are thinking about the differences made by Martin Luther King Jr and the importance of standing up for what we believe in.  We are discussing in tutor the differences made by others and considering the differences we ourselves could make in the future.

Read Around The World

Read around the World

SUAS extends a challenge to all of our new Year 7 students who will be joining us in September and any of our avid current readers:

Can you be adventurous this summer and read around the world?

There are two ways to get involved:

New Year 7 Students: 

Read as many books as you can over the summer and fill in the reading chart that you were given on induction day. Challenge yourself to read a book set/written in a different country, culture, continent or even another world. You will receive vivos for filling out your chart (it doesn't need to be full) and you will be entered into a competition for the chance to win a bigger prize. 

Current SUAS Students: 

Take a picture of yourself reading somewhere outside of Stratford Upon Avon, it could be on a beach, on a plane or even on top of a mountain... the possibilities are endless so get creative. Present your picture to your English teacher to be added to our 'Extreme Reading Wall' and you will rewarded with vivos and be entered into a competition for the chance to win a bigger prize. 


Stuck for ideas or after a good book recommendation?
Contact our Librarian Miss Dunnicliff: 


Our Learning Resource Centre is also open during the summer holidays so come on in and borrow your next great read. 

Year 7 Induction

Year 7 Transition 2015

Last week SUAS students welcomed their new cohort of Year 7 students to our school.

Students were welcomed by their tutor group with a variety of activities. This also included a quiz about their new school which tested the wits of a few of even our longer serving students and staff. 

Students also produced a booklet to welcome their new tutees and share some fun facts and information about each other and their college. 

It was wonderful to meet our future year 7 students and we are looking forward to seeing them again in September. 

Challenge yourself and have a go at our SUAS quiz linked below:

One Thousand Paper Cranes

One Thousand Paper Cranes

"If you fold a thousand cranes, you'll be granted one wish" (old Japanese legend)

A brave young girl is still remembered today for her determination and dedication to create a thousand origami cranes. Sadako Sasaki's hope kept her spirits high while battling Leukaemia in the aftermath of the atomic bomb. Her bravery lives on in the form of The Children's Monument commemorating all of the children killed in the bombing of Hiroshima. The crane acts as a symbol of peace, everyday paper cranes are added to the memorial by young people from all over the world.

SUAS will be working to create their own Origami pieces in tutor time this week. 

What would your one wish be?
Closing date for entries:  Friday 13th February
