DEAR Time. Every afternoon mentor is Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) time. All students will need a suitable book for this and should be encouraged to read for 20 minutes every evening at home. The more widely the read the more doors will open to you in life.
Period 5: 2.20 to 3.20 p.m.
Period 6: 3.20 to 4.20 p.m.
Period 6 is used for enrichment activities like after school clubs. It is also used for Year 11 (and sometimes other) catch up sessions and subject Interventions and supports. We also sometimes use this slot for specialist Sixth Form teaching.
Buses depart from the Academy at 3.30 pm.
A late bus runs at 4.30pm Monday to Thursday; enabling students to participate in the vast array of after school activities.
