Watch this year's annual Presentation Evening as it happens live from Hall 1 of the ICC
Date: 4th March 2015 @ 7:00pm
Late Start to Lessons Thursday 5th March 2015 at 11.20am
You may be aware that this year’s Annual Presentation Evening will be held at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham and many of the students will be involved in this event either as prize winners or performers.
It has taken a considerable amount of planning to organise this Ceremony away from school and will prove to be a long day for a great many of the students.
In acknowledgement of this, it has been agreed with Governors that all students are permitted to arrive a little later to school on the next day, Thursday 5th March. Students are therefore asked not to attend school until 11.00am.
I hope this does not cause you too much inconvenience and hope you appreciate the reasons for this decision. Thank you for your continued support of the school and I look forward to seeing many parents/carers at the Annual Presentation Evening ceremony.

Holyhead is pleased to announce the publication of the national GCSE and A Level Performance League tables which show this has been yet another outstanding year for our students.
Compared to schools locally and nationally Holyhead students have performed exceptionally well. At GCSE, excellent progress has been made in both English and Maths, with 40% of students exceeding their expected grades.
Our Sixth Form continues to go from strength to strength, with all students going on to higher education and many to red brick universities. Our A Level teaching continues to impress with students gaining top grades across the board.

On 16th September 2014, the RSA Family of Academies launched their Year 8 Leadership Programme (RSA8) at the RSA Academy in Tipton.
RSA8 is a bespoke programme designed for the RSA Family of Academies, to include the citizenship ethos of the RSA. The programme includes a series of workshops taking place across the Family with reciprocal visits with 10 students from each of the Academies. The workshops will run in conjunction with RSA Fellows who wish to get involved with the young people within the RSA Family.
The first of these days took place at the RSA Academy in Tipton, with fellow Matthew Green from Policyworks who introduced the programme by getting the students to reflect on 'What makes a good leader' and the importance of knowing 'The bigger picture,' he spoke about his experiences as a leader. Students then reflected on the session and wrote about what they had learnt about Leadership.Read more: Year 8 team of students working with the RSA at Tipton
