Our Academy is open throughout the year with personalised programmes for our students:
Literacy programmes to improve reading and writing skills
Numeracy programmes to sharpen mathematic skills
Exam preparations – each subject area runs an extensive programme to support the students through critical periods.
Other programmes have included: Carnival club, scrap booking, card making, origami, cooking club, additional needs support, language classes and gardening clubs to name but a few. The student voice carry out regular surveys to ensure the clubs and activities provided meet the varying needs and requirements of our student body and all are welcome to attend. You can visit our extra-curricular activities page on this site to learn more.
The Academy also runs Saturday and Sunday revision sessions in addition to the more traditional - but still extra - evening revision classes.
In our upper school opportunities are extended further through Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) and personal and social development. Links with the business community enable them to apply theoretical study to real life situations. This together with a comprehensive careers programme contributes particularly well to students’ understanding of education and employment pathways.
