Arrangements for the new year

Posted on 01.09.2019

The academy will reopen to all students on Monday 2nd September 2019. Students should be on site and in their morning meetings by 8am.

Morning Meetings

Our academy day starts at 8am prompt. Students should make their way to their morning meetings venues as per the table below:

Year 7Dance Studio
Year 8Canteen
Year 9Conference Room (Library)
Year 10Main Hall
Year 11IT Arena

Staff will be available on the corridors to support students.


Students should be in full uniform before entering the academy site. If items of uniform are not correct, for example if trousers are too tight or shoes are not acceptable, students will be issued with a temporary replacement and you will be contacted by your child's year team to advise of this.

All bags must now be placed in lockers before the start of the day - students in Year 7 (including other new students and those who do not have locker keys) will be issued with a locker in the first week. Locker keys are free in the first instance, with a £2 replacement fee payable if keys are lost.


New students will be enrolled on our cashless catering system on Monday morning. Money can be added to accounts using the 'top-up' machines on the corridors. Students who receive a free school meal allowance will have this added to their accounts automatically and can use this at lunchtime only. Snacks at break time must be paid for.

A letter advising on how to activate ParentPay will be sent home with students during the first week.
