The Academy has been made aware that part of the local sewer system has collapsed, and as such our toilets cannot be drained. This means that we are unfortunately unable to open safely to all students. We have very limited toilet access by means of Grace Payne Inspiration Centre, so only students in Years 11 and 13 may attend the Academy, and only for the duration of their scheduled formal assessments; they should only attend if they have a scheduled assessment on their exam timetable, and return home once completed. The water company hopes to resolve the issue swiftly; we will continue to liaise with them and provide an update as soon as we know more. We too want all students back in the Academy as soon as possible, but students’ safety is paramount. Students can access their learning from home whilst out of the Academy by logging in to Google Classroom here.
