Form Time

Students should arrive at school by 8:30 am and be in their form room by 8:40 a.m. Form Time includes a range of activities and a chance to build friendships and strengthen relationships with key staff.


Every year group has two assemblies each week which focus on a range of themes. Guests are regularly invited into assembly to talk to our students about issues which are important to young people.

Extra-Curricular Activities

These activities run both before school, at lunchtime and after the Academy day. Please see our extra-curricular page for more details of these.

Free Academy Breakfast
