There have been so many outstanding sporting achievements by students recently, that we have had to create a special page to make room for them all.
Many congratulations to all!
This week, Chellaston Academy has been presented with the NCS Champion School plaque for the second consecutive year.
Mr Ellis and Mr Karran accepted the prestigious award, alongside a number of the students involved.
Chellaston Academy's annual rugby tour left for Wales on Friday.
Forty students, from years 8-11, left in their tour tracksuit, as well as a few in comedy fancy dress.
Space Centre Trip
Recently, 14 budding Year 8 astronauts visited the National Space Centre.
The students learnt so much during the visit and now have a lot more understanding about space.
The Maths Department celebrated Pi day on Tuesday 14th of March.
A number of activities took place throughout the day.
The Maths Department would like to thank all pupils who got involved in Pi day to make it a big success.

Message from the Headteacher
I feel privileged, having been appointed in September 2015, to be only the third Headteacher of this Academy since it opened in 1977. The ongoing continuity that this provides has given the Academy a distinctive and strong ethos in which we expect all students, regardless of ability, to maximise their progress which will lead to high levels of achievement.
We want everyone to be proud to be a part of our community. We want our students to feel safe and that they belong. This can be achieved through high expectations of both students and staff both in terms of professional standards and good behaviour which lead to students having the right to learn and staff having the right to teach.
