Academy Day

Returning To School September 2020

Each year group bubble will arrive to school at the same time, to start school at 8:30am. It has not been possible with public transport arrangements to change these. We ask that students arrive in good time to allow hand washing before the 8:30am school start please. You will find below information on the different entry and exit arrangements for each year group, there are lines to follow from the main gate; this will help with social distancing measures, . We have been able to deploy a lightly staggered end time to the day; to support exits and reduce the large numbers all moving at one time to make the journey home.

Year group entry and exit information

  • Year 7 - Left Vehicle Gate. Turn left again. Walk on yellow socially distanced lines on rear walkway. Walk to yellow Harty doors on the right. 
  • Year 8 - Pedestrian student gate. Walk on red lines to Shurland doors. Enter building through doors on the left.
