Dear SCWA Community,

This week at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy, we celebrated the conclusion of our Year 11 and 13 public examinations, marking significant academic milestones. The dedication displayed by our students throughout this challenging period exemplifies the scholarship we strive to cultivate. Additionally, the vibrant Intra School Rounders competition showcased exemplary teamwork and sportsmanship among our younger students, highlighting the value of fellowship within our community.

Looking ahead, we are excited for the ‘Classics to Pop’ Summer Music Concert, an opportunity for our students to demonstrate their musical talents and leadership skills. Meanwhile, our Year 10 and 12 pupils continue their mock examinations. Their approach during this period has been exemplary, and we wish them all the best in their upcoming assessments.

Here’s to another great week at SCWA!
