    On Friday 5th October, 4 girls took to the water in the Regional Schools Swimming Relays. Its was great to see, for the second year running we were able to field a team in this high level competition.

  • Illegal Trespass update

    Vehicle occupants now moved on

    Further to last week's illegal trespass, an eviction notice was served on Friday morning at 8.00am. Following this, the occupants of the illegally parked vehicles moved on swiftly and safely leaving the site clean and tidy. Steps are already in place to ensure events such as this do not occur again and we're looking forward to welcoming all members of our Academy community back to the Academy tomorrow for what will no doubt be, another successful and record-breaking year.

    Thank you as always for your continued support
