At the start of Year 7, students are invited to attend the Year 7 Residential with Mrs. Lucas and the Year 7 team. This is a fantastic opportunity for staff and pupils to get to know each other in a less formal environment and helps forge friendships.

In Year 7, pupils benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum. Support is quickly put into place to assist pupils who have gaps in their learning. Teachers also focus on identifying those pupils who need stretch and challenge to maximise their potential. Form groups have access to a suite of computers which can be used to widen learning opportunities. Pupils also have access to the Academy’s Library, where they can choose from a selection of books to advance their reading skills. Year 7 follow the Accelerated Reader Scheme in English Lessons.
