The year ahead

In Year 9 students start their KS4 GCSE courses and therefore it is vitally important they make a positive start to these 3-year courses.

The main aim is for students to achieve their potential and to do this, they must understand that they must demonstrate excellent behaviour in class and around the Academy building while completing class and homework to the best of their ability. Students must also aim to attend at least 95% so that lost learning time is minimised. Students are awarded weekly for their attendance and behaviour.

Students are actively encouraged to engage in the various opportunities open to them outside of the classroom. These opportunities include football, rugby, cricket, netball, athletics training for recreational purposes plus fixtures against other schools. There is an extensive PSHE programme that is delivered to students daily and is aimed at developing the individual in to a valuable member of their community.
