The school would like to make clear that our charities week was a success and that rumours of theft are untrue. We would also like to recognise that there were statements made by staff members in error that have led to such rumours, and also repeated these rumours, giving students and parents the false impression that such rumours were based on fact
Staff at the Academy have recognised the mistakes made, for which we are truly sorry. We are working closely with parents and students to be sure that we avoid making such errors again. This message is issued to help the community get to the truth and help us all to stay true to our purpose of Together Creating Positive Futures.
This year, our Senior Students chose three charities: one local, one regional and one national. These were:
