  • Stranger Alert - Advice on how to be safe.

    Published 22/03/17

    Advice for Students and Parents.

    Safety advice for Students - How to be safe. 

    Please would you take a few minutes to read this very important advice. 

    • Where possible students should walk home with someone else.
    • If approached by someone in a vehicle, e.g to ask directions, they should stay well back from the vehicle. 
    • There is absolutely no requirement to speak to anyone in a car or otherwise if they do not want to.
    • If sensing any danger students should always run and find help rather than wait to see what happens. 
    • Going into a nearby shop, cafe, even an office block to ask for help are all acceptable ways to avoid danger if they are ever spooked by the behaviour of a motorist or passer by. 

    Of course such instances are rare but they do happen occasionally, and it’s important to look after ourselves and each other, by being alert to risks and knowing how we might handle them if they were to arise.

    Published 05/01/17

    The Languages Department are organising a five day trip to Paris in July 2017.  For more details and the letter that was sent home to parents please click here.

    A collective (or group) passport is a way for an organised group of young people to make a trip to certain European countries.  The academy will need to obtain a Nationality questionnaire and consent form.  The Nationality questionnaire and consent form (‘CPNQ’ form) must be filled in by the person who can give consent for the child to travel.  Please click on the relevant link below to download the questionnaire.  This will need to be handed in to the Academy for the attention of Mrs Miles.
