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. 


Last week saw 22 students from Year 9 and 12 performing at the prestigious Sadler’s Wells theatre.

They have been working hard with the English National Ballet to produce a stunning piece of work based on the piece: The Strange Charm of Mother Nature. They had live music, created for this project and beautiful costumes.

On Thursday, 6 selected students performed as the curtain raisers for the English National Ballet and on the Friday, all 22 students performed along with 4 other schools as part of the Dance Journeys project.

Many parents and staff came to watch the students who were a true credit to the academy. This was an amazing project and we are extremely proud of the journey that each student has been on!
