TedEx Conference, Year 10
Y10 parents – ask your son/daughter or check bags for letters about the TedEx conference on 15 April.  These renowned international conferences bring together original thinkers from across the globe to present short and incredibly fascinating speeches.  The conference sold out in just 22 minutes!  However, Isca Academy has been fortunate to obtain tickets for 14 lucky students to attend the live streaming in the auditorium on site. 
Initially certain students have been targeted so have until Friday 5 Feb to return and confirm their booking. After that date all Y10 students are able to book.  14 places only. Students can sign up to the waiting list on Mrs Freestone's classroom door in G13.  

Chelsea's Choice

Monday 8th February

Years 8, 10 and 11

Last year Alter Ego Theatre Company came and performed Chelsea’s Choice to both Year 8 and a special parents performance. Both students and parents said it was a very powerful piece of theatre and told an important message about sexual exploitation.

Chelsea's Choice is an innovative Applied Theatre production that has proved highly effective in raising awareness of children sexual exploitation amongst young people in the UK. The production lasts for 30 minutes and tells the story of three students who, along with their tutor, discover the diary of a girl called Chelsea. Chelsea was a young girl who, having fallen out with her friends and family, was approached by a man called Gary. Gary was older, owned a car, had a flat and treated her like an adult. Unfortunately Gary was not what he seemed to be. Chelsea's story is then played out and examined in an attempt to understand what happened to Chelsea and how it could have been prevented. 

The play is followed by a discussion so that students have the opportunity to ask questions and explore some of the themes raised in the production in more detail.

Parents may wish to discuss this with their children – a video trailer of the production is online at

Parents Invited:
If parents would like to see the production as well then you are invited to come and join the Year 11 showing at 2:15pm. If you would like to see the production, or would like someone to contact you with more information, please contact reception – 01392 204082.

Year 11 Textiles groups – please see the letter on the website from Mrs Searight regarding your forthcoming assessment and practical projects. A link to this was sent out to these families earlier today.

Wishing you all a happy weekend.
