Dear parent carer
Monday 9 December – Full closure for KS3 only
I am writing to advise you that we have reluctantly decided to close KS3 all day on Monday 9 December. This applies to years 7-9 only. The Academy will remain open for KS4 and KS5.
We continue to have major issues with staffing, with nearly one third of teachers off sick today. I am already aware that I have a high number of staff certified as sick for Monday, meaning that we will be unable to cover classes effectively.
However, by having years 10-13 in school we can continue to provide these exam groups with a quality experience.
I expect all students to return to the Academy on Tuesday 10 December.
Thank you for your support.
The Real Inspector Hound
Ark Putney Academy is proud to announce we will be celebrating the opening of our brand new drama theatre with a performance of "The Real Inspector Hound", a play by Tom Stoppard.
The plot follows two theatre critics named Moon and Birdboot who are watching a ludicrous setup of a country house murder mystery, in the style of a whodunit. By chance, they become involved in the action causing a series of events that parallel the play they are watching.
The cast is as follows:
Moon – Jeremiah 12FMA
Birdboot –JJ 12ESI
Mrs Drudge – Poppy 9COL
Simon – Cameron 9MEV
Cynthia –Nicolette 9KTO
Felicity Lea- 9NCO and Victoria- 9NCO
Magnus – Manni 9COL
Inspector Hound – Connor Davis 9MEV
Tickets cost £1 and are available to purchase from reception, by calling 020 8788 3421, or through Wisepay.
Students can also reserve tickets with their tutors or from students who will be selling them at break every day next week.
