Y7 Parent Handbook

The handbook for the parents/carers of our incoming Year 7 students provides all of the information needed in preparation for your child starting with us in September.

You will also find the information from our uniform provider Speedstitch, which outlines the items needed for your child in September.

Please not that school begins on 3 September at 8:30 am and that your child should arrive at school before this time.

You will also find below our welcome video that we have put together during school closure, which includes a message from our Principal and some existing Year 7 students, a mini virtual tour or the academy building, and some messages from teaching assistants. 

Finally, attached at the bottom of the page are the instructions for the different projects that we would like for students to complete over the summer. Please support your child in completing these to the best of their ability, in September their tutor will let the students know when to bring their summer projects into the academy.
