Food and Drink

It is not permitted for students to eat or drink in corridors or classroom.

In light of advice from the Department of Education and growing concerns around the impact of these drinks on young people, ‘Energy Drinks’ (including Monster, Red Bull, Relentless etc) are not allowed in school. The British soft drinks association (BSDA) support this stance stating “we are clear that energy drinks are not recommended for children, and we want to get that message across to young people and their parents.” Any students with energy drinks will have them confiscated and poured away. 

Mobile phones and hand held devices


Mobile phones, MP3 players, iPods and so on are not allowed to be used in the

Repeat offenders will have them confiscated and parents will be asked to collect them at a time which is suitable for them.
The school is happy to take messages from parents or if the is a correct need to allow students access the academy’s landlines
