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. 


On beautiful sunny Thursday afternoon, the Y8 cricket team played against arch rivals Latymer Upper School at the impeccable grounds of Wood Lane. On paper, some would say that it was a clash between David and Goliath.

Captain Jack won the toss and opted to bowl first. On a flat and dry wicket it did shock Mr Lima! The late Ritchie Benaud would have definitely been screaming to bat. Nevertheless the year 8 bowling attack managed to reduce an organised LUS batting team to 87 runs from 20 overs.

With 60 runs being the teams top score this season, it was always going to take a monumental effort to try and chase down these runs. Nevertheless a wonderful knock by captain Jack (29) supported by solid performances by Usher, Chevar and Oliver meant that the boys went on to win the game with 2 wickets to spare.

If you are interested in playing cricket for fun or for the Academy, why not come and join us on Wednesdays for cricket practice. Alternatively ,speak to your PE teacher for more details.
