We were pleased to be able to welcome the Ofsted inspectors in to the Academy on 4 and 5 November 2021. The section 5 inspection resulted in the school being judged as 'good' in all areas.
The inspectors said, 'Pupils value and appreciate the subjects they learn. They like coming to school. Staff have high expectations and pupils work hard to meet them. Leaders and staff have planned a well sequenced curriculum that enables most pupils to learn well.'
For more information please see the full Ofsted report (Pdf).
Exam certificates from 2021 are now ready for collection. Please collect from the sports centre reception between the hours of 10.00-15.00 from Monday 6th to Friday 10th December.
After the 10th December, please contact the school to arrange a mutually convenient time to collect.
If you wish someone to collect on your behalf, we require written permission from yourself allowing this arrangement and the designated person must present their ID please.
SBL Academy has worked with colleagues from our primary schools to arrange orientation visits for Year 6 students who are transferring to SBL Academy in September.
During this visit students will meet key members of staff and spend some time in our dedicated Year 6 Transition Hub.
If may be that your child is from a school where only a very small number of children are transferring to SBL Academy. Rest assured we are currently contacting all parents / carers of these students to arrange a visit to the SBL site.
