End of Term Arrangements 2020/2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

As we reach the end of a long term, we would like to outline our end of term arrangements. We have planned an exciting end to the term, one that encompasses a culture of celebration of our successes this year and one that allows our students to engage in a range of activities that they are very much looking forward to.

Sports Event: Monday 19th July

On Monday 19th we are holding an on-site Sports Event, where all students will be participating in an array of sporting events. PE kit should be worn to and from the Academy on that day; this is not a nonuniform day and all students are expected to be in PE full kit. If there are any concerns regarding the kit, please contact your child’s Head of Year. Students can also bring a coat in case of poor weather, and sun cream in the anticipation of some good weather. Students should also bring a bottle of water for the day. Unfortunately, parents/carers will not be able to attend but we will post pictures and updates on our website and social media sites. We hope to be able to invite you to on-site events in the Autumn term.

Enrichment days: Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st July

On Tuesday 20th July, students will be taking part in enrichment activities to build skills such as teamwork, problem solving, goal setting and confidence. On Wednesday 21st July, our students will say goodbye to their current form tutor and will be coming home to you with information about their brand new form and form tutor, who will be your primary contact under our new “Student Care” model. On that day they will also discover who else is in their form and where their new form room will be. Students need to wear the full school uniform on these days.

Finishing times: Wednesday 21st July

Finishing times on Wednesday 21st July are as follows:

  • Year 7 and 10: 12.10pm
  • Year 9: 12.20pm
  • Year 8 and 12: 12:30pm

Any students who are eligible for a free school meal will have their allowance made available during break time on that day.

If you have any further questions regarding the end of term, please contact the Academy office on 02476 589 000. We will be confirming the arrangements for September 2021 in a letter to be sent shortly. We hope you have a restful summer and look forward to seeing you all in September.

Yours sincerely,


Mrs N Whiles
