Year 11 Happy to be Back3rd Sep 2020
Wednesday saw the long-awaited return to The Gainsborough Academy of the new Year 11s after an extended break due to COVID-19.
Despite the unusual circumstances surrounding their return to the Academy, the students took everything in their stride and settled back into school in exemplary fashion.
One Year 11 student, Tori, spoke of how glad she was to be back in the school environment:
“It was really nice to be back in school and in normal lessons again,” she said, “I enjoyed talking with my friends and the actual work wasn’t too bad, but now I just have to get used to it”.
Mr Shaw was especially impressed with how well students have transitioned into Year 11. He said:
“Well done so far Year 11 on a great start back!
“I was really pleased and proud to see how positively the Year 11s have returned. They have been enthusiastic, motivated and engaged.
“I am looking forward to seeing the progress that they make during this term”.
Keep up the good work, Year 11!
