Fantastic A Level Results
August 17, 2017
We are absolutely delighted that the hard work and efforts of our students in year 13 have resulted in them achieving excellent A’ Level results this year.
We have seen a significant increase in students achieving the very top grades. Our results have continued to go from strength to strength this year and we are thrilled that this will allow our students the best platform for their next steps in their future.
Principal, Alan Warboys said, ‘our students and teachers work incredibly hard to ensure our students meet their potential. We are privileged to have such dedicated and skilled staff.’
Jonathan Clarkson, Director of Sixth form, said, ‘each year we are thrilled that so many of our students achieve their goal to study at University or undertake apprenticeships. This year group have achieved excellent A Level results showing that hard work pays off. Our thanks go to the students, parents and staff who work so hard to achieve this level of success.’
Particular praise is given to students who have overcome many obstacles to achieve excellent outcomes this year. Richard Spink, Deputy Head of years 12 and 13 said, ‘we are so proud of the achievements of all our students, particularly those who have faced a range of challenges, yet have remained so focused on their futures to get where they want to be.’

Revised Temporary School Lunch Menu
June 16, 2017
As we are entering into the third week of our kitchen refurbishments, we would like to thank parents for their continued understanding during this period of disruption.
We have started to receive feedback on the foods available to our students and we want to make sure that all students who choose to eat school lunches are catered for.
A wide selection of fresh sandwiches are available daily, and we’ve also added pasta, fresh salads and pastries to the menu, which is available to download below.

If your child has any special dietary requirements or will only eat particular sandwiches, please don’t hesitate to contact The Academy.
We hope that you will see the benefits from this short disruption when we open our new kitchens in September.
