[04/11/21]   Tomorrow is the start of Summer Term! All year groups will start at the normal time of 8:35. It will be a Week B.

Parents and carers are advised to help students complete their lateral flow tests on Monday and Thursday morning, before eating or drinking. Results take 30 minutes.

Main school students may choose to wear their summer uniform in line with the expectations communicated in the end of term letter (25.3.21). We recommend students still bring their blazer in the slightly colder days at the start of term because classrooms will still be ventilated.

After over 2,500 tests it is time to start to scale back AA's rapid testing operation. A massive well done and thank you to all involved. Flowers and Principal's commendations presented by Mr McShane as a sign of gratitude for a team who definitely went above and beyond.

We’re sorry we weren’t able to open our doors to you this year to introduce you to our community.

We’ve tried to capture some of the spirt of the Academy in a Virtual Open Evening.

You can hear from our Executive Principal, Neil McShane, our Progress Leader for Year 7 and Transition, Hayley Cushing out our values and overview of why we are an OFSTED Good school with “exemplary” features.

Our Year 8’s also give you a tour of the school and our Head Students tell you what they like about the Academy.

Miss. Parks introduces you to our “exemplary” Student Support Team and finally, our Heads Of Faculty give you a brief overview what what will be studied.
