ACADEMY DAY SEPTEMBER 2014 – JULY 2015 Due to the pressures on Merseytravel we were unable to proceed with the proposed new day. We will have a new day prepared for 2015-2016. Please be reminded that only Years 12 and 13 will be allowed to leave the academy premises at lunchtime from September 2014. All pupils from September 2014 will be expected to enter the academy via the main academy gates as the side gate to the Birket area will be permanently locked for safeguarding reasons.
