The exam season is now well under way. We wish Years 11-13 every success and thank them for their contribution to TLA. On Friday we welcome special guest Hugh Dennis ('Outnumbered' & 'Mock The Week') to officially open our new building. We anticipate an entertaining assembly!

Year 9 students attended a briefing day for a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) activity sponsored by GSK. Students toured the Worthing site, worked as a team against other schools and won the group challenge. The students will work with a mentor from GSK in preparation for the finals in July.
As part of the whole Academy drive to improve independent learning, A-level teachers nominated students for their outstanding work. Mrs Gresty presented prizes to hard-working students at the Leavers' Tea.
Goblin kit cars raced for the ninth year and an amazing day was experienced by all of the primary pupils who took part. There were 23 cars racing this year. St Philip's, Arundel were the overall winners for the first time! Many thanks to Geoff Davis, our compere, who made the event so exciting.
Students and staff from the Academy enjoyed three sunny days in Paris at the beginning of May. The group learnt how to make the perfect French baguette, saw the famous sights of Paris and visited Parc Asterix. Tres bien!
Nineteen girls attended the top of the table Super League clash between Surrey Storm and Team Bath. Despite the fantastic support from our TLA girls and huge crowd, Team Bath outclassed our nearest 'local' side. This did not disappoint the girls who had a fantastic experience of top level Netball.
PRAY. We have found lots of creative ways to communicate about what we are feeling inside. Happy or hurting, asking and thanking, hundreds of RS students have had a go at prayer using bubble tubes, post-it notes, sand, clothes pegs and so much more. It has been good to think and talk and pray.
Dance students' practice paid off with an amazing show given to parents and students. Year 7 students were also able to watch a performance during the afternoon.
Mark White 10S2 has progressed to the finals of the Junior ABA National Boxing Final after winning his semi final bout at Portsmouth. He has trained hard to reach this level - a great achievement for both Mark and the Littlehampton Amateur Boxing Club.
