  • Thursday 21 December 2023 The Library LRC During my first term here at Acland Burghley, the main focus has been to re-organise the entire library space, the resources and to reignite our reading culture. It’s within these elements that a library can be magical! Whether that magic helps to boost academic rigour, independent study, or vitally as a quiet calm and safe place to engage with reading as an enjoyable activity. As we near the end of this term, there is evidence that this is occurring and I’m pleased with how students are adapting to a renewed ideal about how we use and engage with the ABS Library LRC. The Y7 Literacy Intervention’s group is another great example of student progress – their confidence has grown so much over the past six weeks.
  • Friday 15 December 2023 Y7 Parents' Evening We are looking forward to welcoming all Y7 families to the school on Thursday 25 January for Y7 Parents’ Evening from 4.30pm to 7.00pm.
