We dedicate the first day of term to the new Year 7 to make them feel totally welcome. Within the first few weeks we have a full programme of settling in activities designed to help students to get to know the Academy, the staff and each other.


Progress 8:

Progress 8 is a measure of improvement from arrival at the college from Key Stage 2. This performance measure is there to show the distance a student has travelled from Key Stage 2 to Year 11.
