Information for Parents

Published on 25th July 2017

Dear Parents/Carers

Information for parents


Thank you for your support in ensuring our students are smartly dressed; they are a credit to you. I need to remind you that all students must wear the new clip on tie from September 2017. The tie can be purchased from Morleys and Academy School Uniforms via our website or from student reception at school.

Improving communication

We are always looking for ways to communicate more effectively with our parents and school community. We try to ensure that all relevant information is placed on the website in a timely manner. Thank you to those parents who have made helpful suggestions regarding the use of email. Over the coming academic year we aim to use email for the bulk of our communication with parents; sending letters home with students can be very unreliable. It is essential that we have the correct email address in school. If you have not already done so please email with your name, child’s name, tutor group and primary email address.  We will of course always make paper copies available for those parents who request them.

End of term arrangements

School will be closing early for the summer holidays on Wednesday 26th July. Students will be dismissed at 1.30pm.

Start of term arrangements for the new academic year

Tuesday 5th September:                Year 7 are in school from 8.30am until 3.10pm

Year 10 are in school from 10am until 12.30pm for induction

Wednesday 6th September:         All students in school from 8.30am

May I take this opportunity to thank you for continued support of the school and wish you a happy, peaceful summer holiday.

Kind regards


Mrs T. Rees
