All projects in art link with contextual work involving various cultures and civilisations from around the world.  They lead to a better understanding of different ways of life and respect for cultures that are different from our own. 

Year 8 students are currently studying life in America and Britain in the 1950s and its influence on Pop Art including the different styles of Pop Art in each country.  The images attached show students Pop Collages where they have explored using every day popular items to make artwork.  Typography and comics were also explored and some year 8 students had a huge amount of fun baking cake messages at home to support their collage work.

On Friday 28th June, our students did us proud at the Year 11 Prom night.

It was an evening of real celebration as they depart onto new adventures. There were some amazing outfits on display.

Many had put a lot of thought into what they were going to wear, which included white socks for some lads and very uncomfortable-looking shoes for the girls!

There were also some very classy arrivals. The evening was a great success and very enjoyable.

Thank you to all who helped to co-ordinate the evening, and to all staff who attended and supported the event. Thanks also to the Prom Pixies for their support with dresses. The students will leave with lovely memories of their prom.

Please keep tickets safe and present them on the night as this is a ticket only event.

We look forward to seeing you then.


Last Friday alongside worldwide support, Hayle Academy declared its climate emergency. We will be seeking reform across all aspects of school life, with the sole intention of reducing the carbon output and pollution levels.

This year we will re-launch the iSite Council, which will be dedicated to tackling these pressing issues; from plastic waste to paper usage, recycling and resource management alongside positive carbon impacts.

Mr Lea-Clark, a science teacher at Hayle Academy added: “I am very grateful to be chairing this committee and am looking forward to debating the issues in depth with the student council.”

This planet faces some tough choices if we as a species are to thrive in a biodiverse world. Communities across this country and the world are now starting to take action to prevent problems such as air, water and land pollution, deforestation, soil degradation, the greenhouse gas effect, and species extinction which, collectively, will help to redress this crisis. It is not too late to make a positive impact on the environment; through the power of knowledge, you can lead a more sustainable lifestyle, perhaps even contribute to tackling some of these issues here in school or within your own home. We only have one home and that is Planet Earth.
