AN INTRODUCTION to sign language at Passmores Academy
IT was heartening to see so many pupils return to school after (for most) six months away due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
RECENTLY, a wonderful mural of Marcus Rashford was unveiled at Passmores Academy.
PASSMORES Academy recognises that the young people in year 11 have had the most difficult of times over the last few months with regard to their futures and the impact of having sat no exams.
