LAB Literacy Festival – 6th June 2022

Dear Parent/Carer

Across Thursday 23rd June and Friday 24th June, Leigh Academy Blackheath will be hosting LAB Literacy Festival. The event is a chance for students to delve into how literacy affects a range of subjects and can positively impact our day to day lives.
