Top 5% of schools nationally
It is a sheer honour to be Headteacher of Five Acres High School, a school with incredible standards and a warm heart. The school has been on a transformational journey of improvement, and our excellent GCSE results this year place us in the top 5% of schools nationally. Our simple aim at Five Acres High School is that our students will have a better chance of success than if they went anywhere else. We want them to be both academically successful and also grow into wonderful young people.
We are a proud member of the Greenshaw Learning Trust, a ‘family’ of like-minded schools, that work closely together and the best practice so that our children make amazing progress.
We are delighted to announce we have been fortunate in securing over 25 companies and organisations to come in to school and speak to our students. Please see the floor plan. We would love to see you and your son/daughter use this opportunity to ask questions about your child's future study, employment and training options. There will be two presentations in the school library from 6:00pm-6.15pm and 7:00pm-7.15pm from GROWS, who we work closely with at Five Acres High School. They will give advice and guidance for parents and students on their post-16 pathways.
Billy Pugh in Y7 has had some great success this year with his biking. In September he collected his awards for winning the Bristol BMX 2019 championship for the age 12's, where he won all 3 series competing in over 25 races on Wednesday evenings. Also in September he raced in the last round of the Root 1 racing series and managed to finish it off with a win making it 4 wins in all rounds across the South of the country and taking 1st in the series. Billy has also recently raced in the last round of the MIJ series where he managed a 1st place and also winning all rounds to take the series win. All in all a very good season with other highlights such as fastest time of the day in all age groups at the both rounds of the Mojo racing enduro's and winning an adults 'whip off' competition at the #rideforryan fundraising day. Next year Billy hopes to be back in Europe to compete, and also continue throughout the U.K.
