Looking back over the 2022/23 academic year, there has been a lot to celebrate here at Lostock Hall Academy. Not least, having the privilege of seeing Yr 11 students mature and face the challenging process of sitting their GCSEs with determination and integrity. Those students deserved the night of celebration that they had at the valedictory before going on to enjoy to the summer break.
It also has been a pleasure to, not only welcome the increase in wider opportunities for our students throughout the year, but to welcome all the wonderful positive comments from members of the public about the students’ respectful manner and smart appearance along with parental appreciation of the time and commitment it takes from staff to organise. Those positive messages that people have gone out of their way to write are very much appreciated, especially when we all know just how much demand there is on people’s time. Thank you!
This year we have also continued to make improvements to the facilities, not least the wonderful sports courts, which the students are very proud of and have patiently waited for access to, as the work progressed through out the term. In addition, the students who don’t want to participate in sport, now have access to new seating within their yard, which creates an environment fit for the twenty first century. Thanks go to all involved.
On Thursday 20th July at midday, we will be waving off all our students and wishing them a restful, enjoyable and safe summer break. I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing everyone return on Tuesday September 5th along with our new Year 7 students.
Fond Farewell - After 21 years of continued support to students and parents, Mrs Armstrong has decided to take a well earned rest. She will be retiring at the end of August, ready to put her feet up. Everyone at LHA wish her all the best and know that she will be missed.
