We had such a great time with our Year 7 students when they joined us for their Welcome to Year 7 day yesterday. Here are just a few photos of their adventures at Treviglas Academy. We look forward to seeing everyone for the Welcome to Year 7 evening from 5-7 pm today.

Our summer transition day takes place on Friday, 26th July from 9 am - 3.30 pm - parents/carers please ensure you have booked a place for your child. 

Students win national competition.

Four students in Year 10 have won the Satelife competition, run by the UK Space Agency, winning the Best Team Project category.

Today at Fistral all four boys were interviewed by BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio Cornwall and Spotlight to celebrate their success. One of the highlights for both the boys and Mrs Gough was when they received a personal congratulations from Tim Peake.

Joel Armstrong, Calvin Hulance, Matthew Old and Judd Phillips took part in a project as part of the After 8’s club they attend. The Science Mark Gold department runs a weekly club developing students with a flair for science. Mrs Gough, head of department, said, “ I am extremely proud of the boys, they have come up with a very novel idea that has the potential to make a significant improvement to quality of life for many people.”

The team were tasked with the brief to design a new application for satellite technology or satellite data that will improve the life of those using it. The boys chose to design an application that will assist people who suffer from IBS and Crohn’ s disease.

During the project the boys presented their ideas to Miles Cardon, of Cornwall Spaceport, and have chosen to include both Spaceport and Goonhilly as important partners in the developmental stage of their ideas.

The next stage for the boys is to take their idea to a Dragons Den type event where they pitch their ideas to senior people in the space industry, investors and entrepreneurial advisers on what they need to do to get their idea into production.

Y10 Hospitality student from Treviglas wins National Competition!

Congratulations to Lily Tate, who beat hundreds of entries, from a wide range of schools, in the national Tunnock's Teacake competition.

We think Lily's dish was simply amazing, master chef worthy and we are incredibly proud of her progress.

Lily is currently studying in Year 10, for her Hospitality and Catering qualification at Treviglas Academy and we think her future is looking very bright.

School Funding Issues

Dear Parent / Carer

 Update – School Funding Issues                                                                              

 I wanted to contact you to provide an update on current issues relating to school funding.  

 Sadly, I have to confirm that despite intense lobbying of the Government and Department for Education, matters remain extremely challenging.  In short, schools are still not being provided with adequate funding and resource to deliver the level of provision and support that is expected and that our families and children deserve.
