End of term letter to Parents/Carers
For the first time, Cathedral Academy has set up a Parent Teacher Association, which we have called CASPA. We believe that a PTA is an excellent way to bring together parents, teachers and hopefully the community to raise money and to support the school.
We hope our PTA will provide an opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal. All parents can get involved, at the moment we have three parents representing your views. The academy will benefit from the additional funds we will raise and the increased opportunity for parents to be more involved in school life.
Please follow @CASPA_Cathedral on Twitter for the latest news! If you are interested in joining the PTA please contact Joanna Johnson in the attendance office or e-mail email@example.com for more information.

YEAR 9 – Higher Education Experience Day – Leeds Metropolitan University
The day involved 14 Year 9 Most Able Students. The first activity was a meet and greet Ice breaker- Students were split into two groups and sat on separate tables. There was a student ambassador on each table. Their first task was to, as a team build a tower that was 10cm high (or taller) to hold a cream egg. We did well but didn’t win.
They then had to match up the key words with the correct definition, e.g. Masters, Graduate etc. They then had to rank in order the most important reason for going to university to the least important reason. This was followed by a tour of the campus.
They chose between 3 different workshops:
Ben who was one of the student ambassadors who was sat with our students said they worked very well and were very friendly!
