We have a convenient new way to share information with you about your child’s school life. From 29th October 2019 we began rolling our new parent app and website.
Further information can be found here
Please see our closure procedure here:
Unfortunately it has been necessary to close the swimming pool from Friday the 4th of October 2019. The two boilers which heat the water in this building (including the pool and our shower blocks) have failed, and are, in this case, beyond repair.
Please see the Herons Fitness website for more information
For September 2019 the Academy will be implementing a new behaviour management system.
Please see document below for more information.
Behaviour Management System
One of several changes and developments at the Academy over the past year has been the introduction of our subject ambassadors. A new initiative to give students more input and responsibility within their school community.
In years 8-13 each academic subject nominates two students in every year group to represent them as a department. Currently we have over 200 subject ambassadors within the Academy.
Whilst each specific subject area will have its own individualised roles and responsibilities for the students there are also some whole school expectations of the ambassadors, for example, representing their department at the Academy open evening in September.
Students gain a huge amount from the role, including developing their initiative, organisational skills and teamworking ability. Specifically, for our 6th form students it gives them an additional aspect to include on their UCAS application.
In the future we hope to develop a Subject Ambassadors webpage linked to the Academy website where students will be able to write and post ‘blogs’ about what is going on in their particular area.
This area is very much a developing progress and it is very much a case of watch this space…….
