Transport Forms 2017/18

The college Transport Department require completed forms, including a passport photo, and payment details by Friday 21st July.  A reduced service will operate 5th-8th September for Academy students only, so buses will only stop at pick-up points they have received applications for.

September 2017 timetables can be viewed here:

Sports’ Day

Thursday 20th July is the TREA Sports’ Day.

Mr Sedgwick has been busy organising a range of sporting events in preparation for Thursday’s sports’ day. There will team events in the morning followed by individual events, such as 100m sprint, long jump and discus, in the afternoon. As the events are taking place throughout the entire day, students are asked to come dressed for the occasion – in Academy PE kit only (no football tops, etc.).

Students have also been asked to bring a £1 donation which will be added to the Charity Cannock Chase walk fund.

Unfortunately, if the weather takes a turn for the worse, sports’ day will have to be cancelled. If this is the case, Year 10 students will have their land-based session as normal.

GCSE results

The Academy will be open for Year 11 students to collect their GCSE and BTEC results between 9.00 am and 11.00 am on Thursday 24th August.

If anyone is unable to collect them in person, results will be posted. Or, alternatively, a representative can collect them but please contact the Academy to arrange this.

Revised bus timetables – 10th -21st July

South Staffordshire College students finish on Friday 7th July so, for the last two weeks of term (Monday 10th – Friday 21st July), the bus times and routes for Academy students will differ slightly.

All routes, with the exception to route 17, will be served by South Staffordshire College minibuses. Pick-up places remain the same but please check the route numbers and pick-up times on the revised timetable: bus timetables 10th – 21st July
