Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Lunches

The Academy holds the Healthy School Accreditation. This ensures health education is an integral part of the academy curriculum and that the wider community is involved in its planning, implementation, evaluation and celebration.

As an a Academy we promote physical and emotional health by providing accessible and relevant information that equips pupils with the understanding, skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health. The academy understands the importance of investing in health to help pupils do their best, raise levels of achievement and improve standards.

Lunchtime Arrangements

For the safeguarding of our students, all students from years 7-11 will be expected to stay on Academy premises over the lunchtime period.

The Academy also now has its own new healthy eating canteen supported by the School Food Plan. Click here for more details.

A renewed partnership between Oasis and Sodexo is to achieve the Silver Award in Healthy food status - for more details click here
