Year 7 & 8 Drama Assessment

All Year 7 and Year 8 students are required to sit a Drama assessment to inform school of their progress in Drama. All students who did not complete this on 20 January will need to sit the assessment on Monday 25 January. Students should check their To Do tasks on ClassCharts for details.

We would appreciate parents’ support to ensure your child takes the assessment if they did not complete itf on the earlier date.

  • The assessment must be done independently and without class booklets.
  • The assessment has to be done at a set time – either 10 am to 10.45 am or 4 pm to 4.45 pm on Monday 25 January.
  • Students will take part via a link to Microsoft Forms which they will find on ClassCharts. The Microsoft Forms link will only be ‘live’ at the above times.

Before the day of the assessment, please ensure your child can access the following links:

Years 7 to 9 Remote Learning Timetable

“You Said, We Did”

Following on from feedback from students, parents and staff, Years 7 to 9 are moving to a one-week remote learning timetable with less lessons and spare time for catching up built into the timetable.

Students should follow the timetable each day in the order they prefer and use any Catch Up time to finish off work they have not yet completed. If they are up to date, they can use the Catch Up time to read, exercise or complete an independent project.

Students should submit their work as they complete it to allow for continued feedback from teachers during the week. All work should be submitted by Friday each week.

You will find the new timetables for Years 7 to 9 on the Student Links and Remote Learning pages of our website (access from the Home page). There are also useful guides to using ClassCharts and Office on these pages too.

Thank you for your support.

Year 8 Parents’ Evening

Year 8 Parents’ Evening POSTPONED

Update: 6 January 2020

We have taken the decision to postpone the Year 8 Parents’ Evening during the current lockdown.

Teachers are now working from home for the majority of the time and, therefore, are unable to phone parents and carers.

We realise that Year 8 have not had a parents’ evening since they joined the Academy, and we promise to make this a priority once schools re-open.

In the meantime, if you have any urgent concerns, please email and a member of staff will get back to you.

If you had already booked your appointment, it will be moved to the new date (once confirmed) to save you booking again!

Thank you for your support.
