Therefore, school will be open for all Year 13 students due to receive results on this day, all students need to be at the front of reception between 8.45 and 9.00 a.m. (at the latest). Please follow social distancing protocols on the way to the Academy and whilst on the Academy premises. Please be aware that only students are able to attend. Parents, other relatives or friends will not be able to enter the building. This is to enable the Academy to keep social distancing protocols in place for the safety of all students and staff.

Important Notice: Potential Change To Year 11 & 13 Results Days

GSA

You will be aware that Sandwell Council issued guidance last Friday entitled "Avoid a Local Lockdown in Sandwell". You can read this guidance by clicking here:

Sandwell Council - "Avoid a local lockdown in Sandwell"

Therefore, we wish to inform pupils and parents that we are considering an alternative “Remote Results Day” plan for our upcoming results days in August.

Although currently pupils have been informed of their relevant times to attend the Academy on their respective Results Day (Year 13 on the 13th August and Year 11 on 20th August), we may need to implement an alternative remote plan to play our part in helping avoid a local lockdown. This plan would entail no students being invited into the Academy on their Results Day; in this scenario their results will be emailed out to their Academy email address on that day and subsequently posted to their home address as well.

If we have to undertake this Remote Results Day plan, we will inform you via this website and our social media accounts, so please check for an update no earlier than next Tuesday 11th August.
