Student Contract

Students are expected to follow the following contract.


Registration is at 8.50 am. Students should arrive in the academy at this time every day.


Students are required to be in the academy for the normal full school week. Most students achieve over 96% attendance because they realise that good attendance is a vital part of being successful.

Study lessons

Students have designated independent study periods to devote to private study in the Independent Learning Centre.

Independent study

Homework is an essential part of sixth form life. Most students should receive between 12 – 16 hrs of homework per week. Part time work should not interfere with this.

Leaving the site during the school day

Appointments should be made out of school time or, if unavoidable, during non-contact periods and students must sign out for these. All students must always sign in and out of the academy. Students earn the right to leave the site during free periods if they on target and have excellent attendance and punctuality.


Holidays should not be taken during term time.
