Early Finish 24th September 2019

12th September 2019

Dear Parent/Carer,

Open Evening — 24th September

I write to inform you that on Tuesday 24th September, the Academy will close to students early at 12:50pm to allow staff time to prepare for our annual Open Evening, which will start at 5:30pm. Students who are entitled to a free school meal can collect this during break time. We will notify bus companies so that they are able to amend their timetables in order to transport students at Ipm. Please arrange to collect your child/children at this earlier time or ensure that they are able to make their journey home.

Our annual Open Evening is a key date in our academic calendar; it is an event where we showcase our students' work, give prospective students and their parents/carers an opportunity to tour the campus and hear about our personalised learning experience for every. student for every child:

  • A rich programme of clubs, trips and activities
  • A full induction programme at each key stage
  • A passport to adventure developing every student as educated citizens of the future including local, regional and international trips, Duke of Edinburgh scheme and a full cadet programme

Recruiting students to help the Academy grow and thrive cannot be done without the input of our current students. They are true ambassadors for our Academy as reflected in our good summer examination results and in the new uniform, which they wear with pride. We as a staff are incredibly proud of them and their achievements and are grateful for any supportive role they wish to take up to assist staff in the planning or on the evening itself. A letter requesting student helpers for the evening will be issued next week. Please encourage your child to support the school community if requested. I look forward to working with them on the evening.

I am also pleased to inform you that as well as our Open Evening, we will also be offering tours of the campus in a series of Open Mornings on Monday 30th September, Tuesday 1 st and Wednesday 2nd October at 9: 15am. If you know of a prospective parent/carer who would like a morning tour, please ask them to book by calling 01375671566. Admissions queries can be emailed to

My thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Yours faithfully,

Joanne Williams
