BTEC Exam Update

Following the latest DfE notice posted this evening we have made the decision not to proceed with the scheduled BTEC examinations this month. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, however, we feel that it is an appropriate response in these unprecedented circumstances. Students due to take these exams will receive further information from their 6th Form teachers in due course.‚Äč

COVID-19 testing in the Academy

The Academy is the process of preparing the Academy site in order to take part in the Governments COVID-19 mass testing programme.

A short video clip demonstrates the self-swabbing process that students will need to undertake under the guidance of Academy staff to enable them to take part in the testing programme. All of the resources and equipment required will be provided by the Academy. Further details of how to register for the programme and the timeframe for testing to commence will be released shortly.

Changes to school day to accomodate wellbeing breaks

Thank you to all parents/carers for your support with live lessons. Pupils need regular opportunities to move away from the screen for short periods. Consequently from Monday 25th Jan, we are adding two additional short wellbeing breaks to our school day to facilitate this. The timings of two lessons will be adjusted to accommodate the change. Please see letter below.
