Last night (03/05/17) at the awards evening Zoe Baker scooped Barnsley Academy first award for ‘Most Innovative Business idea 2017’. She’s had her business running for 2 years now and as worked really hard in her own time to develop and grow her business and we are really pleased that her hard work was recognised with an award.
We also had 2 other teams Bath Shakes and Odd Botts representing the school at the awards evening that were praised for all their hard work and commitment to creating successful businesses.
This incredible picture is of our Y7/8 and Y9 rugby squads who played in their respective tournaments last night at Shaw Lane.
Fantastic performances from both teams ensured that we won all of our games, with great performances from students who were playing competitively for the first time, to students who are seasoned veterans!
A very proud moment for Mr Pirie and Mr Parkinson to take 32 lads to a rugby tournament and dominate on this scale, something which the students must take all of the credit for. Please congratulate them if you see them today.

In the build up to the half term break, over 75 students at Barnsley Academy collaborated with students from Sheffield Park and Sheffield Springs Academies to bring audiences two evenings filled with Performance including Dance, Drama and Music. The theme was 'Humanity in Motion' which moved from pieces set in the past, to the present , to the future to offer a glimpse of moments through time and things that we fear for the future.
The show was a tremendous success with audiences of all ages giving positive reviews and it has enthused our students' ambitions to take part in even more enriching opportunities! A great platform for any student to take part in no matter their performance experience, for us to grow in confidence and to develop from each project to the next. Students are looking forward to creating new work and showing as many people as possible their talents. Our next show will be 'The Spirit of Christmas' on Wednesday 14th December 2016, watch this space for information, tickets and more...
