Students who are interested in volunteering at this event can get a permission letter from Student Services or speak to their tutor. We are looking forward to welcoming members of our local community to enjoy a festive evening.
We are very proud to announce that SBL Academy's annual Christmas Concert is on 19th December at 7pm in the main hall (M90).

In the last week we have spent time focussing on the importance of remembrance. We gathered on Friday as a whole school to reflect in some detail in an assembly led by our Principal, Mr Anderson.
We then gathered as a whole school for a two minutes silence. As you would expect, this was observed immaculately by all present.
Poems were read by Megan, Cole, Lottie and Maddisen: ‘For the Fallen’ by Laurence Binyon and ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae.
‘Nimrod’ by Edward Elgar provided appropriate musical accompaniment.
Our gathering ended with a repeat reading of McCrae’s ‘Ode of Remembrance’:
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.”
