Welcome Back!

Dear Parents/ Carers We are looking forward to welcoming all our students back Wednesday 5th September at 8:30am. It has come to our attention that some families have been experiencing difficulties obtaining blazers, skirts and PE kit from Sue’s Schoolwear. If you have been affected by this, please send your child to school wearing as close as is possible to the expected uniform and then we can liaise further whilst issues are resolved.

School transport update

July 20th, 2018|

Dear Parent/Carer Further to my letter to Thurrock Council below, I would like to encourage all to inform the Council of their concerns and questions via the dedicated email address: [email protected] I feel I must clarify strongly that the decisions currently being made around transport are NOT the decisions of the Academy, and we too have raised our concerns and questions over this matter. I can assure you we will be working on this matter with the Council with the aim of securing the best possible transport arrangements for our students.
