On 27th February 2020 the Academy hosted international inspirational speaker Reggie Dabbs, as part of the Hillsongs School Project organised by the Metropolitan Police.

Years 8, 9 and 10 heard his story, and his key message

"You can never change your past, but you can change your future!”

Here are some of things students said: 

"Today is a happy event because Reggie Dabbs gave a very good speech"

"Today I witnessed a man called Reggie (a professional saxophone player). Told us all about his past and how he feels about it... told us how he works for Heat, LOS and Cleveland (basketball teams) and he even played us some songs with his saxophone" 

"I think that this was good for the school as it may change the way someone might view themselves or the environment around them"
