Travelling to and from school
The entrance for all students into the academy is via student reception. The Academy can be accessed either via the main entrance on Victoria Avenue East, or via the back of the school on Hinchley Road.
The gates at the back of the school will close at 8.45 a.m. All students will have to walk to the front of school to gain access after this time. This should not be an issue as you must be at school by 8.30 a.m.
