For week around 11th November. 2014 the Academy student leadership team, with other students organised various activities to help focus our minds upon those who fell in war. The assembly for all houses included singing by the Year 7 choir, poems read by a group of students, a video made by a Queensbury student and a talk by the Academy Principal.
Each student was issued with a red ribbon, upon which they wrote personal sentiments. These were affixed to wooden stakes which were hammered into the ground during very moving house ceremonies, at the end of which the Last Post was played.
Following our recent OFSTED inspection, Queensbury Academy has been recognised as a good school and one which is rapidly moving towards becoming outstanding. We were graded as “good” for all of the OFSTED categories specifically:
• Overall effectiveness
• The achievement of pupils
• The quality of teaching
• The behaviour and safety of pupils
• Leadership and management
Places may still be available for Year 7 and Year 9 students starting September 2015. If you missed our open evenings and would like a personal tour of the Academy for you and your child, please contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone us on 01582 601241

Summer 2014 Results
We are delighted to report that our Sixth Formers achieved a really impressive set of A-level results building on the strong performance of last year. Particularly pleasing was a 30% rise in the proportion of students passing 3 or more A-levels with 12% of our students achieving at least two grade As and a grade B, enabling them access to the best universities in the country.
We are equally pleased with the Year 11 results. The proportion of students achieving five or more GCSE pass grades has increased to 95%. Despite the challenging national picture, we are proud that our English results rose significantly with 69% of our students achieving A*-C and an impressive 76% making expected progress.
All of these results reflect the hard work and commitment to high standards of all our students and staff, recognised by Ofsted during our recent “good” inspection, and are an important step towards becoming an outstanding school. .
Congratulations to them all
