My name is Mr Ogden, Head of Year 9 and I am delighted to be Head of Year 9.
I work closely with the class teachers to monitor and support each pupil’s learning, personal development, behaviour and wellbeing. Year 9 is an exciting year as pupils start their GCSE courses as well as benefit from the variety of extracurricular activities that are available. I am looking forward to seeing every pupil reach their full potential both as an individual and as a member of Morecambe Bay Academy.
Duke of Edinburgh
I am particularly pleased that a high number of year 9 pupils showed an interest in signing up to DofE in school. Mr Aitkin has finalised the list and will be arranging the first meetings very soon. For more information on the Duke of Edinburgh scheme visit https://www.dofe.org/
In the Spring term, we held our first celebration assembly where we celebrated the achievements and successes of Year 9 pupils and they were awarded certificates at the ceremony. It was fantastic to see such a great turn out parents and carers watched and enjoyed tea and biscuits as pupils were given awards for various subjects and contributions to tutor time.

In March, a number of pupils enjoyed lunch with the Principal for their outstanding effort grades in all subject areas the last Endeavour cycle. This is a significant achievement and our congratulations got to all pupils who were involved.
