Year 8 Rounders

Well done to the committed Year 8 Rounders club who gave up their time in period 5 to take part in a Year 8 game on the field on Tuesday 1st July.  It was organised to celebrate their efforts and enthusiasm in Rounders and was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.  Thank you to all of those that took part, I look forward to the start of the netball season and seeing you all back at clubs in September!

2. Give a letter of authorisation to the exams office to allow someone else to collect results on your behalf – the person collecting will also need a letter from you stating you authorise them to collect results on your behalf, and they will need to bring with them a form of personal identification.

Dance Show

Thank you to all involved in the Summer Dance show (23.06.14).  It was an enjoyable and inspirational evening to celebrate the success and achievements of our talented dancers at FBA.  I wish you all a restful summer to prepare for a busy dance schedule next academic year!

A World of Their Own

Please join us on Thursday 3rd July 5-7pm to celebrate the art of the students of Frances Bardsley Academy.

"A World of Their Own" at the Brentwood Road Gallery is a celebration of the hard work that both the AS and A Level students have invested into their development as accomplished visual artists. This will be the final show for some before they attend Central St Martins, Goldsmiths or the Chelsea College of Art and Design and go on to what we all hope will be glittering careers.

From the textured, intimate oil paintings of Kirsty Simmons, which breech the boundaries of the figurative and the abstract to bring us disquietingly to a confrontation with age and illness; to the stunning charcoal self-portraiture of Hope Taylor that not only masters complicated techniques of classical chiaroscuro but simultaneously introduces a very contemporary conceit to express fear of decay; to the visually arresting photography of Hannah Parker, (to mention just a handful of names).

We hope that you, your friends and family, will join us to enjoy some of the best artwork coming out of Secondary Schools throughout the UK.
