TA on Heart
This week TA have been on Heart FM’s Matt and Caroline show every morning as part of their Grannies go back to school feature. Grannies Lil and Sylvia came to TA to see what school was like 60 years after they had left school themselves.
They were full of compliments about the school, not just about our wonderful facilities, but they also spoke about how hard working and smartly dressed our students were. We enjoyed showing both the Grannies and Heart’s listeners, the brilliant things that happen here at TA every day. You can listen to all of the clips below.

Sixth Form Academy Players play for Torquay United
On Monday Nathan Hebbes, Louis Roberts and Connor Stewart from the Sixth Form Football Academy played for Torquay United’s Reserve team in a game against Watcombe Wanderers. The game was played at Plainmoor under lights with a crowd of around 500 present. Torquay fielded a team which was packed full of first team squad members and led by manager Kevin Nicholson. Nathan Hebbes started the game in midfield, played a full 90 minutes and manged to get himself on the scoresheet. Both Louis Roberts and Connor Stewart started on the bench and played the final 35 minutes of the match. All of the boys played well and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Next Monday will see more boys representing Torquay United in their St Lukes Bowl clash against Bideford FC.

Ethic of Excellence update
We added students’ work to our impressive Ethic of Excellence wall in the Academy which showcases our students’ brilliant work. The selected pieces were put into frames and mounted on the wall to give an impressive eclectic display. Students and visitors alike en route around the school pause to take a look at these great pieces of work. Well done to all students who have work on the wall.
