Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Day

The academy opens each morning from 8.30am onwards with our ‘Arena Meet and Greet’ where our senior staff and pastoral mentors greet students every day and welcome them into our academy.

We have six lessons throughout the day, each 45 minutes in length. Lessons are broken up by break and lunch where students can take advantage of our outdoor facilities including basketball, football and table tennis. Students can also purchase a variety of healthy and nutritious food from our canteen. After break, lunch, and at the end of the day, everyone lines up in alphabetical order in their tutor groups; they are then collected by their teacher and escorted to their lesson to ensure a calm, ordered start of a lesson or end of the day.

After school, we run enrichment clubs in a variety of subjects until 4pm. Interventions take place to support student learning both at the start of the academy day and at 3pm.
