Keep Fit

A new over 50s Dancercise class has started in Lymm! The group (run by Kayte Pitchford) meet every Thursday at the Lymm Community Centre at 10am for an hour. The group is called Keep Moving With Kayte and the ladies that come to the group are aged between 50 and 75, of all varying fitness levels and abilities. The class is not high impact and does not involve any floor based exercises. Not only is it good for the body to exercise but also for the brain!

The group is very welcoming to new members and no previous dancercise experience is required. Contact Kayte on 07719406374 if you require any further information.

Lymm High Becomes Academy

Lymm High Takes Academy Step

Lymm High School Lymm High School has become the first in the town to convert into an academy. The school's academy status was confirmed officially on Wednesday.

Speaking after conversion was announced, Angela Walsh, head teacher, said: "Today we celebrate a new chapter in our long history as a school by our conversion to an Academy. Our new name, as from today, is Lymm High School, an independent state school. This new status will give us more autonomy and resources to support our vision of providing an outstanding education for all our pupils.

"I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has given of their time and supported this process, particularly the school governors, our parents and our very many community partners and, most importantly, our young people whose energy, enthusiasm and creative ideas have been exceptional throughout the complex stages of this process. We look forward to exercising the freedoms our new status will inevitably bring us."

Conservative Policy

 

Academies are a flagship Conservative policy that allows schools to operate outside of the council control. They have autonomy to set the curriculum, opening hours, teacher's pay and uniform. The model has been criticised by trade unions as divisive, while Warrington Borough Council has also expressed concerns academies will disrupt the "family" of schools in the town.
