Our students’ learning is our top priority. We ensure that each and every lesson accommodates a range of learning styles and we vary the length of lessons according to students’ needs. All lessons are meticulously planned so that they are challenging and interesting.

The Academy day starts at 8:20am. It ends at 2:30pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday,  and at 3:20pm on Tuesday and Thursday. The school is open from 7:45am when students may have breakfast, use the Learning Resource Centre and have access to their lockers and form areas.

The extra 50 minute session on Tuesday and Thursday allows us to provide a broad and varied programme of activities in addition to the academic curriculum. These activities includes sports (training and competitive), design and technology projects, drama, additional exam preparation, health and well-being lessons and other possibilities ranging from animal husbandry to community projects.
