Weather Update

Please note we are continuing to closely monitor the weather conditions and currently the College remains open.  All updates will be immediately posted on this website and therefore provide you with the most up-to-date information. 28-02-18 12:30pm

Further to the last update, we can confirm that the College continues to remain open and we are in constant communication with our transport providers as we approach the end of the day.  Please note that all after College activities today will be cancelled and we encourage students and staff to make a prompt departure at the end of the day so long as it is safe to do so. 28-02-18 13:00

Despite the fact that some staff and students have had to depart early due to the adverse weather conditions in the surrounding areas we have successfully remained open throughout today.  We will monitor the weather conditions closely between now and 06:00 tomorrow (Thursday 1st March) and again provide any updates via this website.  So long as it is safe to do so, we will obviously remain open.  If however under exceptional circumstances we are forced to close the school, work will be set via Show My Homework. 28-02-18 15:15

It has been brought to our attention that a digitally altered image of this webpage has been created and circulated by a student via social media that states the College is closed until Monday.  THIS IS CURRENTLY NOT THE CASE.  Please can you directly refer to this website for official information and updates.  If you are able to help identify the name of the student(s) involved in creating this false image please could you inform us via the “Report an Issue” button at the bottom of the website Homepage. 28-02-18 16:00

Our web hosting provider who supplies a platform for all the Academy websites (as well as thousands of other schools nationwide) experienced a huge spike in demand this morning, and despite anticipating this and increasing capacity, the numbers of visitors to school websites was 7 times the normal level, they have added even greater capacity to allow for 75,000 visits per minute but there is a possibility the website still might go down, so with this in mind we will also post weather updates on our Official Facebook and Twitter pages as well as via the College email system. 28-02-18 16:45
