Views of the Academy

I just want to say a very special thank you to everyone at Serlby Park for making yesterday such a very special day for me.

The assemblies were excellent and I am so impressed by the way your students sat and listened and their courtesy.  The Primary School students were a delight. 

Words are inadequate to thank you for the Act of Remembrance and the poppy drop. What an amazing and moving tribute they all paid to the memory of the fallen during that time. 

Thank you for letting me stay for it, it was a real privilege.

Please pass on my thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome - it was a lovely end to all the schools I have visited, it was very special.

See you next year, if you could let me know which day you have booked me in I would be grateful.

I Think the School is very lucky to have such brilliant and committed staff.

I am writing to thank you for the invitation to the Dress Rehearsal of the Serlby Park Academy Christmas Concert. 

On the afternoon of 7th December 2017, thirty four Clients of Age Concern Harworth and Bircotes had a very enjoyable time at the Dress Rehearsal of the Concert. 

It was also an opportunity for some of the clients to see the new Serlby Park Academy for the first time.  All were very impressed. 

After the Concert refreshments were served to the Clients. 

The Trustees and Clients of Age Concern Harworth and Bircotes would like to say a massive "Thank you" to all at Serlby Park Academy for the invitation to the Concert.   

Also to all involved in the time and work involved in providing the lovely sandwiches, cakes and drinks. 

The Trustees of Age Concern Harworth and Bircotes are very proud of the association with Serlby Park Academy. 

Once again "Thank you" to all involved.

"Thanks for a lovely morning with a fantastic receptive audience that were a credit to the school. I'm so glad they enjoyed it. Thank you for all your hard work and for looking after us. Gemma Books from Chesterfield

It was an absolute joy to see the enthusiasm and support that students and staff alike gave for the MacMillan coffee morning during break time on Friday 29th September.

It was an honour to be involved and a pleasure to observe. I have no doubt that you raised a substantial amount of money for an incredible cause.

MacMillan Coffee Morning 29th September 2017 


The morning I spent in the school was lovely, the staff and pupils were warm and welcoming. The pupils were all really engaged with the activities that I brought along, we identified some First World War objects, made some trenches which the pupils really got stuck in with and had a go at some semaphore. Thank you for having me in your lovely school.

I would like you to thank the pupils for me.  They were exemplary in all aspects: polite, courteous, engaged and well behaved. David Birkinshaw from Rossington All Saints Academy May 2018

On behalf of All Saints Church, Harworth I would like to thank you and the staff for the hospitality extended when Les, Gerald and myself visited Serlby Park Academy this morning. 

We were incredibly impressed with the school and the pupils behaviour and really enjoyed attending the assembly to present DVDs to the pupils who took part in the Miners' Dedication Service in church on the 28th January 2018. 

We have a new vicar Revd Nicky Skipworth joining us in September. Nicky is very enthusiastic and I am sure she will be getting involved with Serlby Academy and forging closer community links. At anytime we are happy to open the church for school visits, just let me know. 

I would like to write an article in the Town Mag and post something on All Saints Fb page, can you confirm parents permission please and if they consent to the photograph being published that you took today. 

Hope you all have a wonderful well deserved holiday. If we can help in anyway, please get in touch. 

Kind regards Ann
