Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

A Trip to Jamie's Farm

A group of students from years 7, 8 and 9 spent this week at Jamie’s Farm enjoying the routines of rural life.

As well as taking in the fresh air, the boys tried their hands at some hard graft – turning the compost, helping with the animals and even delivering a lamb or two.

The group also took part in a butchery demonstration, helping them understand meat’s journey from the farm to our plates, and cooked their own food over an open barbeque.

Jamie’s Farm commented on Twitter: “We’re half full not half empty here at Jamie’s Farm with great kids .”

They’ve only just returned, so check next week’s Academy News for a full report.
