MESSAGE FROM MRS SHARPLES, PRINCIPAL

We are very sorry and disappointed that we are unable to invite you into the academy this year.  Choosing a place to study for secondary education for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent/carer.  In these difficult circumstances, we will do all that we can to provide you with the information that you need to help you make this choice.

We are looking forward to seeing you and your children, virtually, on the 1 October & 6th October, from 6:30pm.

Mrs Sharples
