The Pursuit of Pledges begins, 6 week holiday challenge

June saw the launch of an exciting new Pledges Programme that encourages students to think about their achievements and contributions outside of the classroom environment. These 11 pledges are aimed at all year groups and allow students to build a successful portfolio to prepare them for life after NET Academy Kearsley and when looking for future employment.

This 6 week summer holiday challenge is fantastic way to achieve these pledges and start September receiving postcards and badges for the Bronze, Silver and Gold Pledges.
