Students, staff and parents at our Academy enjoyed a day of entertainment and celebrations for the third annual Victory Day on Friday 28th September. We opened our doors for a full programme of naval and creative activities and workshops.
To celebrate three years since the official opening of the Academy, the community was welcomed for an afternoon open hour, featuring a wide variety of activities including arts workshops with primary children. Guests were treated to a tour and were able to see students at work – before being invited to join an after school event with refreshments, live music, BBQ and performances to celebrate the anniversary.
Lessons were suspended for the day, with children instead participating in activities to boost their team building, communication, and interpersonal skills, led by both staff and the Academy’s wide variety of local partners. These include the Chatham Historic Dockyard, Sea Cadets, Fort Luton, Nucleus Arts and the Cabinet of Curiosities.
These are only a few of the brilliant activities provided by staff and friends of the Academy.
The Victory Academy is a member of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT), a family of 15 high-performing schools across the South East that prides itself on providing a high-quality education to all students.
Our strength in the Creative Arts and Sport in particular has been recognised by multiple recent accolades. Arts Council England’s coveted Platinum Artsmark celebrates our commitment to arts and cultural education and its strong partnerships with organisations in this sector; Our Academy has also recently achieved the Gold School Games Mark, which celebrates its commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport.
Mandy Gage, Executive Principal of The Victory Academy, said:
“It was a delight to host our third annual Victory Day, which was another great success this year. Students and staff look forward to a full day of exciting activities, and we are always so pleased to open our doors to parents, carers, and the local community – showing them everything The Victory Academy has to offer.
“Victory Day is a great chance to celebrate the brilliant achievements of our students and school, and by engaging in a range of fun activities, students also get to develop some important skills for the future.
“We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show our fantastic school community our gratitude for their continued support, and I am really pleased that the day went so well.”
