The dates vary from year to year and we will publish the exact dates when they are confirmed by the Examination Boards. As a rough guide, they usually start mid-May and finish towards the end of June.
Contact the Academy by phone or email and ask to speak with your child’s Year Manager. If you do not know who this is, just give the name and year group of your child and any message will be forwarded to the correct person.
Contact Reception and ask to speak with a member of the Safeguarding Team. Do not give the name of the child to the member of staff on Reception, or discuss your concerns, in case there are issues around confidentiality.
The Academy is open for students any time from 7.30am. Students have to arrive for 8.30am, the start of the Academy day. The Academy Day finishes at 2.35pm although many students choose to stay to attend extra-curricular activities. Students are expected to attend an additional lesson from 2.35pm to 3.30pm on up to three evenings a week in Year 11, their final year, so that they can get additional study support.
The Academy Open Evening for this year, 2017, is on Thursday 28th September. The Open Evening will start at 6.30pm and finish at 9.00pm.
