Form Time

Pupils should arrive at school by 8:30am and be in their form room by 8:35am. 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 pupils 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

Served from 8am, all pupils can get a free breakfast from the canteen everyday. This includes cereals, fruit, toast and a range of hot and cold drinks.
