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




Open Evening

In September we opened our doors well into the evening to showcase to all prospective students and their parents/carers everything we have to offer.

It was all hands on deck as staff and students banded together to prepare activities, displays and musical compositions for visitors to enjoy.

Please see our gallery below for the range of exhibits and events going on across the night.

A big thank you to all that gave up their time, and to all of our guests - we look forward to meeting you again in September!
