The Voice of Experience – Amelia (Year 7)

Dear Year 6,


Today I am going to be telling you all about Arena Academy. I am going to start off with saying Arena Academy is an amazing school with fabulous opportunities to take part in, that are open to all students.


Arena Academy is a welcoming school to all new pupils. I can ensure you that you will have a fantastic time at here at Arena. I as a Year 7 student took part in some amazing tasks. For an example, I took part in an Arena Action Group. Here I made lots of new friends and enjoyed it lot. In the Arena Action Group, we picked up litter around the school to make it a better environment. I also took part in an after-school club, which was Drama Club. Here we could act know a bit about other people and make friends, who have similar interests as you. Turning up at a club is a great way to make friends and even learn a bit more about the schools. Even now during the lock down, I am taking part in a Debate Mate Club, where we debate about lots of different topics. All these clubs are also a great way to raise your confidence. We also have many sports club that are a great way to keep fit and are lots of fun.


All of our teachers at Arena Academy are welcoming, inspirational, passionate and very helpful. Here at Arena Academy, I as a student feel comfortable to talk to a member of staff when facing difficult times and always without a doubt they will help straight away and that is with all teachers. Our teacher at Arena are very supporting and open to any new ideas. You can also count on them for anything.


When I first started Arena Academy, I felt nervous and worried, however I made new friends and took part in many extracurricular activities. Arena Academy offers many amazing trips. At the start of Year 7 in October I was able to go on a residential trip, which made me more familiar with other students and teachers. Arena Academy also does many productions and lets any year group audition. Being a part of the school production is great fun and you can make lots of new friends.


I can honestly say that Arena Academy is an inspirational, passionate, supportive, and welcoming school. Arena Academy has really boosted my confidence since I first joined, and I am really appreciative for the school I go to. This is a happy environment to go to everyday and before lock down started, I always looked forward to coming to school every morning. Arena Academy has amazing opportunities that you should all take part in. Here at Arena we accept any ideas and we will always support you all the way from Year 7 to Year 11. You will enjoy Arena Academy a lot and be thrilled at what you can take part in.


Kind Regards
