Things have been very different at the academy over the past few months. We have worked very hard to put as many things as possible in place so that students and staff felt safe when they all returned. We have had an amazing start to the term; our average attendance for the first 2 weeks was 95% which is well above the national average.

If you would like to find out more about what we put in place to make ourselves as COVID-19 safe as possible then please have a look at this video that we created before welcoming all of our students back to the academy in September.
