September Re-opening

Important Announcement - Jul 2020

First Day Back

There is an incredible amount of work that needs to be done by staff to ensure reopening is successful and safe. Therefore we have moved a training day which was due to be on Friday November 20th to Monday, September 7th meaning the first day back for students will be on Tuesday, September 8th. On this first day, students should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before their start time. Students will be arriving and leaving at different times from different entrances. Please see the following table for guidance:

Year Group      Arrival time  Entrance gate and reporting point  Leaving time
7 8.30am East - East Hall 2pm
8 9.15am Central - Lower Playground 11.45am
9 1pm Central - Lower Playground 3.30pm
10 9.15am West - Yr 7 Playground 11.45am
11 1pm West - Yr 7 Playground 3.30pm
12 & 13 11.30am West - Yr 7 Playground 2pm


This plan gives all students quality time with their tutor and an opportunity to learn about how the Academy has had to adapt. The Year 7s have a full day to make up for them not having had an induction day.

From Wednesday, September 9th students will be having four lessons of 75 minutes. Each year group will be starting and finishing at different times. These are:

  • Yr 7 - 8.30am to 2pm
  • Yr 8 - 9.15am to 2.45pm
  • Yr 9 - 10am to 3.30pm
  • Yr 10 - 9.15am to 2.45pm
  • Yr 11 - 10am to 3.30pm
  • 6th form - 8.30am to 2pm
