Library in progress!

Well, we now have a TREA library!

A massive thank you to anyone who has been able to donate books – they have turned our empty shelves into book shelves!

Staff have been working hard to clear out unwanted furniture, brighten up blank walls with inspiring displays and catalogue the hundreds of books we have received.

You will shortly receive additional information regarding the Accelerated Reader programme being introduced to all Academy students.

In the meantime, if you still have any unwanted books at home, fiction or non-fiction, no matter the condition or genre (obviously the reading material must be appropriate for our students), we would be delighted to take them off your hands. Just send them into the Academy as soon as possible.

If you have a large number of books you are able to donate but are unable to deliver them, please contact the Academy to arrange for them to be collected.

Non-Uniform Day

Our impromptu non-uniform day on Tuesday 14th February raised £120 – thank you as always to those who contributed.

The donations will be split between Teenage Cancer Trust and the school library fund.
