Exam Certificates

We are pleased to inform you that your child’s exam certificates are ready for collection from the Academy in A Block reception. During term time the reception is open from 8.00am - 4.00pm Monday to Thursday and 8.00am – 3.30pm on Friday. We require your child to collect their certificate(s) in person because these are legal documents. Alternatively, the person who is collecting them on their behalf must produce permission in writing from them in order for us to release the certificates.

During school holidays the reception will be accessible between the hours of 8.00am and 3.00pm, not including bank holidays or the Christmas week.

Current year 12 students who attend our Sixth Form will be able to collect their certificates from the Sixth Form Pastoral Office during school time.

Thank you.

As part of their learning in A Level History, a group of our year 12 students travelled to London last week to join the Tudor Conference at Camden Centre.

Year 7 meet author Gwyneth Rees

Gwyneth Rees 1

Year 7 were lucky enough to meet the author Gwyneth Rees in the library last week. Her novel The Mum Hunt won the Red House Children’s Book Award and she has also been nominated for the Carnegie Medal with her novel My Mum’s From Planet Pluto.

Gwyneth discussed her two latest novels, Libby In The Middle and Earth To Daniel in an interactive session with our students. The students then had the opportunity to buy signed copies of the books & meet the author.
