The year 12's had a fantastic trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach today, they were a credit to themselves, their parents/carers and the Sixth Form Team, thank you!
You have set a high standard for the main school trips coming soon!

The Sixth Form team enjoyed welcoming you all to our taster sessions, and we cannot wait for you to start in September. Here are a few of our Year 11's taking part in some of the activities we offered.
The question is can you guess what object Mrs Grace had them make using themselves in Theatre Studies?

Scopay is the Online Payment System which we use within Accrington Academy, and this can be used to top up dinner money, pay for school trips etc, without having to bring money into school.
It is very easy to set up, you will just need your child's link code which you can get from school.
If you haven't set this up already but would like to, please email [email protected] and we can send it out to you, or your child can collect from the main office.
If you have any trouble with the set up of your Scopay account, please contact the main office.

Following the PM's annoucement, and taking account of Student voice, we have decided to move back to a policy of 'personal choice' regarding face coverings in classrooms and communal areas- this was communicated to all students in assemblies last week. Due to the media coverage over the weekend of a potential spike in Lancashire, we will monitor this decision closely and review on May 28th 2021. If you have any questions please do not hesistate to contact us.

Testing continues to play a crucial role, in and out of classrooms, in our fight against COVID-19.

Reporting test results can be done simply and quickly, from mobiles, online or by phone, and should be completed straightaway. Reporting not only supports contact tracing in the event of a positive case but also assists our understanding of community rates of infection.

We hope your children enjoy their time off school but we do still need your children to continue with their 2 tests a week at home.
They need to report their result to Test and Trace and can inform school of any positive results at [email protected]
We hope you enjoy your break and we look forward to seeing you on the 13th April ๐Ÿ˜Š
