Following consideration of the responses to our recent consultation the Governors have agreed to trial an extended October half term for the 2017/18 Academic year. For this year only in the first instance the half term break will now be of two weeks duration (Monday 23rd October to Friday 3rd November 2017).
In order that the overall learning time for students remains the same the Academy is adopting an extended Monday for the full year, which will now finish at 3:30pm every week. Other days will continue to finish at 2:50pm.
Governors have also agreed the dates for 4 of the 5 INSET days for 2017/18:
Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th September 2017
Wednesday 20th December 2017
Tuesday 2nd January 2018
For the full holiday dates for 2017/18 please refer to the Term Dates section of our Information page.
