Welcome Back to Spark

September 20, 2017 9:00 am

Now we’re a few weeks into our Autumn term, I think it’s time for an official welcome…

Welcome back to Spark Academy and to the exciting launch of our brand-new blog! Run by me, Rebecca, Spark Ideas is your weekly look into our inner workings. Moreover, it’s a chance for you to pick up useful tips, learn more about what’s happening at Spark every week and get to know our whole team. Everyone will have chance to take their turn behind the wheel.

What can you expect from Spark this year?

 

Well, things are starting to look a little different here, with our new website and blog and the fantastic renovations underway at our Belgrave branch. Underneath the shiny new surface we’re still working just as hard to provide you with the best tuition service possible.

Since we came back from summer, our team has been bunkered down at Manor High School each day. It’s fantastic to build more on our relationship with Manor. In fact, you can even find us this week at Manor’s open evening on Thursday 21st.

Has the team changed at all?

 

Yes – our team has been getting bigger! We’ve been enjoying getting to know our new members of staff and introducing them to all things Spark. Gemma, Charlotte, Katherine and Vikz have all brought their own unique styles, skills and personality to Spark. They’re also working to further enrich our lessons, captivate our classes and develop our students to their full potential. By now all of our new teachers are settling in well and are enjoying teaching classes at Spark!

Our growing team will also mean we can work on more exciting projects and build on the already strong relationships we have developed with schools in Leicester. This year is all about growing: growing Spark, growing the team and growing you! We’re diving straight in to what we enjoy most – providing interactive, individualised lessons for our classes, in both existing and new subjects.

In English Charlotte and I are making strides to plan new and interactive lessons for both our primary and secondary Sparkies. We want to share our passion and to show the impact of literacy in the ‘real world’. Nic is welcoming the addition of A-level Physics and new Creative Science Investigations for Year 7 and 8. CSI promises a fun and practical approach to ‘outside of the box’ science in real life. The Maths Department is growing rapidly to welcome more staff and more classes; Chris is thrilled to be providing tuition in Mechanics and Statistics alongside his Core A-Level Maths lessons.

The best part is – this is only the beginning! This year Spark is going to be bigger and better than ever before. Importantly for you, at Spark Ideas I’ll make sure that you’re with us every step of the way.
