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.
Dear Parent/Carer, I am aware that Thurrock council have written to you recently regarding school transport for the new academic year. I ask that you please read the letter I too have written, which outlines the academy’s position on this matter. Please click on this link to view letter

Help using Options Online For help on how to access your options choices online please watch this video. We apologise for the ongoing confusion linked to the company advising us to email parents when another advisor informed us we should be sending to student academy emails. If your child is unable to log into their emails (it is the [email protected] and password they log into the academy computers with), the IT department will be open at FB1 and FB2 on Friday 11th May 2018 for assistance or you can email [email protected] Yours faithfully, Miss S.
