Students walking to school with their backpacks on

Dear Parent/Carer

The last day of school for students will be Wednesday 21 July. The timetable for the day is as follows:

8.40 – 9.40




10.40 – 11.10

Form Time Activity (Y7/Y9)

Brunch (Y8/Y10)

11.10 – 11.40

Brunch  (Y7/Y9)

Form Time Activity  (Y8/Y10)

11:40 – 12.00

Form Time Activity (All year groups)

If this early finish causes you difficulties, then please contact the relevant College Admin Office asking for your child to remain at the Academy as normal until 2:00pm and appropriate supervision will be arranged. Unfortunately, there can be no special arrangements with the buses, which will arrive at the normal time. All students will need to make arrangements to make their own way at home at 12.00pm.

There will be no lunch service, however students will be able to buy food during an extended brunch should they wish to do so.

Please note that communication regarding the last day of the academic year for Post 16 students has been sent via a separate letter.

Non-School Uniform

Students will be allowed to wear non-uniform on the last day, as a reward for their excellent attitudes and effort.  We would ask for a charitable contribution of £1 on the day which will be donated to MIND, who provide support around mental health issues, but we would not wish to exclude anyone from participating for financial reasons.

The Academy re-opens on Tuesday 31 August for Year 7Year 12 and Year 13 will also return on Tuesday 31 August in order to complete the National Citizen Service Programme as part of their induction over the course of this first week. All other students will return on Wednesday 1 September – Period 1 will be Form Time. We will keep you informed of any further guidance we receive from the Department for Education in relation to Covid-19 protocols.  

May we take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and wish you, your families and friends an enjoyable summer. 

Yours faithfully

Mr M Gore | Principal
