Yr6 Transition Evening – Rescheduled

May 10, 2018

Unfortunately the transition information evening for parents of Year 6 students looking to start in Year 7 from September 2018 which was previously scheduled for 16 May 2018 has now been rescheduled and will instead take place on Thursday 14th June 2018.

We shall be writing to parents in the coming days in order to provide further information.

Our original calendared date was rescheduled in order to allow students and families to focus on SATS. In addition, a number of families will be awaiting the outcome of the local authority appeals for places at the academy and it was decided a later date would allow all students and families to attend.

We apologise for any confusion this may have caused.

Get lost in a great book!

Fundraising Update

April 5, 2018

We would like to thank all our students and their families for their generous donations to our year group chosen charities this term. From form time football and the loose change challenge, to bake sales and our big spring clean, we have managed to raise over £500 for our year group charities again this term ( and that’s not including the generous food donations made to the food bank in Ossett.) This gives us a running total of  just over £4500.00 raised for charity so far this year!

An amazing effort for very worthy causes – thank you for your continued support with our fundraising efforts. Let’s hope we can raise even more in our summer term!

Issues surrounding “Sexting”

March 16, 2018

During assemblies this week year 7, 8 and 9 have focused on the issues surrounding ‘Sexting’, specifically youth produced sexual images. Creating and sharing sexual images of young people under the age of 18 is against the law and is of significant concern to families and those who support young people. The assemblies sought to enhance students understanding of the risks associated with sexting and where to seek advice and support.  Please discuss this topic with your child and find a range of useful websites below:
