Evening School

Evening School is run most nights of the week by staff who expect students at Key Stage 4 to attend as notified for additional support and intervention. There is a timetable for Evening School put together and sent home to parents each September.

Residential trips and holiday programmes

The academy runs some residential trips and holiday learning days for groups of students. We expect students who  are invited to these to attend them, in order to maximise their opportunities for learning.
