2019 GCSE Results
Results are available from Mrs Forman, Exams/Assessment Officer at the academy. Results will not be issued to anyone other than the student without signed written consent from the student (not parent) and an acceptable form of photographic ID (confirming the identity of the person collecting the results).
Please encourage your child to return any overdue books to the LRC as soon as possible so other students can enjoy reading them. Parents/carers of students whose books are significantly overdue can expect to receive a reminder text message. Should you have any issues in returning the book(s), please contact Mrs Milroy at the academy.

We look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students only on Wednesday, 4 September 2019. Students should arrive for 8:15am. Members of SLT will be on the gate to greet and direct students. It would be helpful for Year 7s to bring with them their school bag and a pen. Their planner and timetable will be given to them on their first day. Any other specialist equipment will be available to borrow. Students do not need to bring their PE kits on Wednesday.
Year 7 Lunch: Parents of Year 7 students will receive their online payment system account details by letter, week commencing 2 September. Lunch will be provided by the academy for Year 7 students during their first week (4 to 6 September). Alternatively, parents can choose to provide their child with a packed lunch.
Where consented to, biometrics will be taken from Year 7 students on their first day. Those that have not consented will be issued with a PIN.
Students in Years 8 to 11 will return to the academy on Thursday, 5 September 2019. Timetables were issued prior to the summer break so students should come suitably equipped.

Founded on the principle belief that all young people deserve equal access to education and that access to period products is essential to this, The Red Box Project was established.
Focused on tackling period poverty by providing young people with sanitary products, the academy is proud to be part of the organisation’s work through making products available to its students, as well as being a donation collection point.

Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school.
It is a legal requirement for a parent/carer to inform the local authority if they are in a private fostering arrangement so they know the child is safe. Private fostering is when a child or young person is looked after for more than 28 days by someone who is not their parent, legal guardian or close relative.
To find out about the support available to private foster carers and why you must let the local authority know of the arrangements, contact the Connected Persons Team:
