News & Events

It has been a very busy start to the New Year and spring term. I always take some time to walk around the academy and visit lessons, it’s wonderful to see learners working so hard. I am excited to see the progress being made by our wonderful young people.


I am delighted that we have a new Instagram account where families are able to follow our page and see photos, videos, important messages and upcoming events. If you are not part of the Instagram community yet, you can install the free app through Apple or Google Play. If you already have Instagram, simply click on the link below to follow our page.

Children and young people use many different social media apps and sites. The most popular are Facebook and Instagram, with many others such as Snapchat, TikTok and Twitter.

There are lots of benefits to social networking. They can allow users to stay connected with friends and family. They can also learn many different things, from make-up or gaming tutorials to making slime, or how to create their own videos.

Like most things, there can be negatives too. For children and young people there are risks that you should be aware of, to help keep your child safe on social media.
