Students from Woodlands Academy were asked by the organisers of Lincolnshire Bike Week, to design and build a 12ft high wooden bike.
COASTAL EVENTS CIC, supported by the BRITISH MOTORCYCLE FEDERATION & the MOTORCYCLE ACTION GROUP are organising Lincolnshire Bike Week, and expect to see thousands of visitors flock to the Lincolnshire coast this July.
The students have cracked on and the bike is now really taking shape!
We are pleased to announce that the challenge to restore the Reliant SS1 to MOT standard and sell it for a profit has been achieved.
Woodlands students have been busy restoring the car as part of their BTEC Engineering Qualification.
It proved to be the perfect car for this learning exercise, easy to work on and also economical when it came to purchasing the new parts required.
At Woodlands Academy as part of the Year 11 Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards we ran a camping residential combined with a visit to Wembley Football Stadium to watch England in a world cup qualifier!
The trip helped increase camp craft skills required for students to pass their expedition later in the year, as well as offering unique opportunities and increasing confidence and teamwork.
Shauna Dawson has been working as an Apprentice Teaching Assistant at Woodlands Academy this year. Shauna has been doing a great job and engages will with the students. Pleased with her work, Boston College nominated her for Star Apprentice of the Term.
Pupils from Woodlands Academy have just returned from a photographic adventure to Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland.
We travelled up to Northumberland and stayed at ‘The Sill’ which is a newly constructed Youth Hostel costing nearly fifteen million pounds.
As you can imagine the accommodation was fantastic!
This will enhance the pupils NCFE Level 1 photography portfolio, along with learning how a professional landscape photographer works in the field.
Our latest Newsletter is now available and is jam packed with stories about what the students have been getting up to in school.

Woodlands Academy are thrilled to announce they have been awarded a £10,000 grant from The National Lottery Awards for All Scheme. This great news means that installation of an outdoor Parkour Circuit can now begin and intern engage the students more at playtimes.
Traditional approaches to physical fitness and emotional wellbeing often do not engage or motivate our pupils. However, many of the pupils are very interested in Parkour and currently engage in free running activities within their communities, often placing themselves at risk of serious injury.
