Sixth form artists spend the day creating beautiful ceramic bowls.
Following a visit to Manchester Art Gallery to see the inspirational work of ceramics artist Halima Cassell, our talented year 12 students spent an entire day with ceramics specialist Mr Vickers, creating their own stunning handcrafted pieces. Using their own themes and research, the students made some beautifully constructed bowls which echo the organic nature of Halima’s sculptures.

This week, the Fallibroome Academy Performing Arts team received an appraisal of their work at the 2019 Shakespeare Schools Festival where they staged a production of The Tempest and the report highlighted the excellent work that had gone into the stunning performance.
I would like to extend my most sincere congratulations to Fallibroome Academy for your tremendous production of The Tempest as part of the 2019 Shakespeare Schools Festival. It was an excellent night of theatre, and I’d like to highlight a few aspects that really stood out.
Your physical skills as an ensemble were showcased beautifully within this performance. You demonstrated an excellent understanding of stagecraft by using heightened physicality to create a world of mystery and magic on stage. Physically and vocally you achieved a professional level of synchronisation and every cast member fully committed to the work. The audience were completely enthralled throughout the entire performance due to the focus, and excellent team work which was crucial to sustaining this enchanting atmosphere. As an ensemble you seemed very in tune with each other and clearly enjoyed working together.
The magic of the Island was further enhanced through the use of live music and singing. This provided a soundtrack to the performance that was pitched perfectly to build a dream like state to frame the narrative arc of the story. All of this was executed beautifully.
All the young actors on stage had clear motivations and actions throughout the performance and spoke the language with total understanding, therefore communicating the story with total clarity to the audience.
Your commitment to the character work, gestures and ensemble reactions also heightened the comedic elements, which the audience loved…and so did I! You made really brave choices as actors, making this old tale completely fresh and exciting.
A bright and lively retelling that was turbulent and expertly tempered with creative and fluid artistic technique! A stunning portrayal! Thankyou!
Performing Shakespeare’s words on a professional stage takes bravery, resilience, and creativity. You should be immensely proud of what you and your teachers have achieved in this Season of Infinite Variety.
I hope to see Fallibroome Academy in the 2020 Festival! Nuala Maguire
Congratulations to all involved in the production. This is further evidence of the incredible work put in by our Performing Arts students and staff.
At the start of October half term, nineteen Business Studies students visited Brussels to experience a range of visits to different types of organisations.
A highlight was the European Parliament where the students took on the roles of MEPs and debated various issues affecting businesses, both in UK and in Europe. Students engaged with this interactive role play game and came away discussing some very pressing issues.
In addition, they visited the National Bank of Belgium where physical cash is still printed (but not for much longer). During this visit they discussed the pros and cons of a single currency for businesses and it was clear there were differing views!
Other visits included the Cantillon brewery, a small family brewery tucked away in the side streets, the atomium (where they experienced amazing views of the city and beyond, Concept Chocolate (a small independent chocolate factory where many gifts were bought) and the European Commision.
The students were a credit to themselves and to Fallibroome and a good time was had by all.
