We are looking forward to welcoming pupils back to school on Wednesday 6 September 2023!
Pupils should enter via the main pedestrian gates located at the front of school or via the rear gate located off Lulworth Road. The start times for pupils are as follow:
Year 7 – 8:30am
Year 8/9 – 9am
Year 10/11 – 9:30am
Year 12 – 8.30am
Year 13 – 10.00am
Staff are looking forward to greeting Year 7 pupils for the first time and will be available to support pupils as they start their transition to Chase Terrace Academy. Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 pupils should make their way to form classrooms. Year 12 and 13 pupils should go to Sixth Form Centre.
We recommend arriving on foot as no access will be available to the school’s car park following review of the school’s workplace transport risk assessment. As a result, a barrier has been installed and access to the car park and parking will only be permitted to visitors with a pre-arranged appointment. Please do not turn right as you enter the car park. All visitors with a pre-arranged appointment should approach the barrier and use the intercom system to liaise with reception staff. The one-way system now operates in the opposite direction and we ask all visitors to observe the safety signs.
As part of our continual efforts to maintain a safe and aspirational learning environment, pupils will also see a noticeable difference inside the school when they return in September, following our investment in a large refurbishment programme this Summer.
Our main school building has benefitted from new flooring in corridors and bespoke artwork has been displayed to represent our broad curriculum offer and promote our school values ‘Respect the CTA Way: Community, Tenacity and Aspiration’.
The Science department has seen further renovation following on from the installation of upgraded heating, lighting and new flooring over the Easter break. We have now decorated the Science corridor, three classrooms and invested in new blinds and furniture where needed. We would like to thank our Site Team and Science teachers who have worked tremendously hard over the Summer break to complete this project.
Did you know that our Sixth Form Centre was fully renovated internally during Summer 2022? We have now started a full ‘exterior envelope wrap’ to replace the windows, exterior cladding and roof to complete the entire renovation of our Post-16 building. We would like to thank JTMAT for their support in funding this project and look forward to seeing the end results in October 2023!
We have exciting news to share with you soon about changes to our catering provision and improvements to our serving outlets following consultation with our Pupil Leadership Team. Please continue to follow Facebook, Twitter and our school website for more updates.
See you in September! #respecttheCTAway #community #tenacity #aspiration
