Reminder: Please sign Student Planners! One of the easiest ways of keeping in touch with your child’s progress is to make sure that you have signed their planner. You can leave notes in the planner if you wish to communicate with your child’s tutor or subject teachers and keep an eye on how much homework  is being set.

We monitor our student’s planners every week and, when we see your signature, we know that we are supporting each other with your child’s education.

Staff and Students get into the spirit of 'World Book Day 2017'!

On Thursday 2nd March 2017, staff and students celebrated world book day in such a creative and fun way.

Across the academy, staff wore cryptic badges with riddles of famous book characters to which students had to guess the character.

Well done to Mr Hall (PE), who was the most guessed character by staff and students. His character was 'Tigger'.

Students were given checklists, which they used to keep score of how many teachers they found and guessed correctly. Each checklist was then put into a prize draw.

Top Scores

The students who received top scores for guessing the most characters where:

In Year 8 - Mrooj Salih

In Year 10 - Diogo Cabral

In Year 11 - Ikran Weheliye and Monsurat Sadiku


It was really great to see staff and students interacting with each other in such a fun way. The day was filled with so much excitement and laughter by all.
