Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Latest News


As you are aware the National Education Union (NEU) has declared strike action.  The strike is happening because of a national dispute between the unions and the government over teachers’ pay, and not because of any issues at our academy. 


I’m getting in touch to give you notice of a change in arrangements for the next strike days on Wednesday 5th July and Friday 7th July


Most of our teachers are in the NEU.
