Dear parent carer

Monday 9 December – Full closure for KS3 only

I am writing to advise you that we have reluctantly decided to close KS3 all day on Monday 9 December.  This applies to years 7-9 only.  The Academy will remain open for KS4 and KS5.

 

We continue to have major issues with staffing, with nearly one third of teachers off sick today.  I am already aware that I have a high number of staff certified as sick for Monday, meaning that we will be unable to cover classes effectively. 

 

However, by having years 10-13 in school we can continue to provide these exam groups with a quality experience.

 

I expect all students to return to the Academy on Tuesday 10 December.

 

Thank you for your support.

 

Kind regards

 

Alison Downey

Principal

 

 

APA Sports Day 2018

Amazing athletic feats at this year's APA Sports Day at Barn Elms, in which Houses went head to head to take home the title. As well as demonstrating excellent commitment and determination, we saw fantastic scenes of teamwork as Houses supported each other and worked together to aim for Gold. 

One of the key stories this year is the sheer amount of record breakers we had! Check out the list below for our Sports Day Superstars!
