The new gates are now fully operational, access onto the school site can now only be gained by following the instructions on the appropriate gate.   I would like to remind parents that if you require to speak to a member of staff then an appointment must be made and this must be stated when you request access to the school site.  Parents who arrive without appointments will be contacted later in the day with an appointment.


May I also remind you that for health and safety reasons, parents are not permitted to use the Academy car park to drop off or pick up students and will not be granted access to do so.  A safe and legal pick-up point outside of the Academy should be arranged with your son / daughter.  However, please give full consideration to our neighbours and park responsibly whilst waiting, we have had reports of parents parking on the grass verges close to the Academy on Western Avenue which unfortunately is causing damage to the grass verges.

Thank you for your support, I am sure the remainder of this term will continue to be a success.

D Keogh
