I am writing to you with great excitement to announce a significant event in the school calendar; the
Year 9 Graduation Ceremony at Don Valley Academy. The ceremony will take place on Wednesday
17th July 2024.

This event marks a momentous occasion as we come together to celebrate the achievements of our
Year 9 students throughout their KS3 journey. It is a testament to their hard work, dedication, and
growth over the past 3 years. The ceremony will be a wonderful opportunity for parents and carers
to join us in commemorating this milestone in your child’s education. We will acknowledge their
accomplishments so far as part of their Don Valley Academy journey.

Students will graduate at different levels; Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum and this will be decided
depending upon the following criteria:

  • Attendance
  • Behaviour
  • Completion of Sparx Maths to gain XP points.
  • Attending Enrichment

If we feel that students are not reaching the required expectations, then they will not be able to
graduate at this time.

Please save the date in your calendars and further details regarding the ceremony’s schedule will
follow closer to the event date. If you have any questions or require additional information in the
meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to celebrating with you on Wednesday
17th July 2024
