Dear Parents/Carers,

As we enter the last few days of term there are lots of activities coming up. 

On Friday 16th December Christmas lunch will be served, this will be the only dinner 

available on this day.  Friday will also be Christmas Jumper or Football Shirt Day, 

where students can choose to wear either a Christmas jumper or their favourite team 

shirt for a donation to charity.  In the afternoon those students with good attendance 

and behaviour will choose a reward event, which includes the opportunity to watch 

the Jack Atkinson charity football match.

The academy will be closing earlier than normal on the last day of term, Tuesday 20th 

December.  The end of day times are shown above. 


There will be one more newsletter this term with details of the new year.

Kind regards

Stephanie Neill

"Go 4 schools" access to parents will close during August whilst exam results are collected.  This will reopen during September once the new school year is set up and running.

Dear Parents/Carers

We are always concerned about the safety of our students as they travel to and from the academy and we work with them regularly on the issues of Road Safety. 

Unfortunately, we have recently received reports of cars being parked on the large paved area of footpath at the crossing of Pathfields Road and Douglas Road, causing our students to walk in the road to pass them.  This is obviously a risk to their safety, and I would appeal to parents and carers not to park in this area when collecting your children from the Academy. 


Thank you for your continued support.
