The Social Scientist Journal – Issue 4

Welcome to the latest volume of The Social Scientist Journal, written by our social scientist subject ambassadors in Year 12,  a journal that celebrates the passions and interests of Social Scientists at Rushcliffe Spencer Academy. Each article reflects the passion and hard work of each individual student who has contributed to the journal. We hope you find this diverse issue a fascinating insight into the world of Social Sciences.

Peer mentors doing great work in the community!

Some of our Y12 students have been working in partnership with the Trent Bridge Community Trust as “Peer Mentors”. The students have completed their training programme and are now working towards completing their minimum of 20 hours of voluntary work.

Careers and Wellbeing event

A reminder that we have a Careers and Wellbeing event running on Wednesday 11th January.  Years 12 and 13 have the opportunity to visit the fair during their lunch break (or their study period for Sixth Form pupils) and all students can also attend from the end of the school day.

Rushcliffe expansion approved

The works required to expand Rushcliffe Spencer Academy have been given the green light by Nottinghamshire County Council. The multi-million pound development, which was given planning approval by Rushcliffe Borough Council last year, will see an additional 560 secondary school places created and provide the school, and local community, with a new improved sports facility.

Students from the Rushcliffe Geography club entered a competition to design flags for Antarctica. Their flags have now been taken all the way to Antarctica and had photos taken with real scientists from the British Antarctic Survey- how exciting!
