  • Performing Arts at Newark Academy

    Three performing arts groups audition with County Youth Arts

    In December, Newark Academy had three performing arts groups from our enrichment clubs attend an audition with County Youth Arts, in the hope of being invited back to perform at the final Showcase event in February . The three groups were Black Thunder Dance, NewArts Dance and Rock School.

    We are proud to announce that two of the groups made it through – Black Thunder and Newarts! Rock School sadly didn’t make it, although they had great feedback and they all should be incredibly proud, we’re certainly very proud of them.

    What talent we have at Newark Academy!!!

  • Boys and Girls Year 7 Futsal teams through to County Finals

    Both the year 7 girls and boys futsal teams are through to the county finals after district wins

    The boys played Magnus and Joesph Whitaker school last week in the district round of the Futsal competition. We fielded an A and B team setting up a great competition. The A team, losing to JWS in the group stages, went on to beat them in the Final putting us through to the county finals. This followed the year 7 girls who two weeks previously took the trip to JWS to beat them in the district round.

    This is the first time we have entered this competition and we wish both teams all the best in the County's after Christmas.
