Late start for students - 27/09/2018
As announced by Mr Beardmore in the recent Parent Bulletin, our main Open Evening for prospective students takes place on Wednesday 26th September. As a result, the Academy will be opening at the later time of 10.55am the following day, Thursday 27th September 2018. Students should arrive by no later than 10.55am ready for a prompt start in period 3 (11.05am).
For any students travelling to school by bus, we have made arrangements with our school transport providers to run all buses (numbers 427, 458, 459, 460 and 963) to run two hours later than the scheduled timetable. For example, a student who catches the bus from their usual stop at 7.45am, on the 27th September this will collect them at 9.45am. The fares for this journey are as normal. We are aware that this may result in students arriving to school a little early (approximately 10.20-10.30am), however, the school and canteen will be open and staff will be available to supervise from 10.15am. The after school bus timetables on 26th and 27th September will not be affected.
Students who are brought to school via South Glos Integrated Transport (eg. private taxi or mini bus) will also be collected 2 hours later.
Students who travel by a public bus service (ie, First Bus) should check the respective timetables with the provider.
PLEASE ALSO BE AWARE THAT, DUE TO OPEN EVENING PREPARATIONS, ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES WILL NOT RUN ON WEDNESDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER 2018
