Regrettably, we have had to make the decision to close the Academy tomorrow (Friday) to all students and staff due to on-going issues with the boilers and the heating system.
Despite our best efforts today we have not been able to fully resolve this, meaning that we cannot guarantee that we will have adequate heating provision for the whole building when we arrive tomorrow.
Today, students have been allowed to wear their coats in lessons, to mitigate any issues felt during the Academy day. This decision has not been taken lightly, was in full consultation with the Governing Body, but also in relation to the Yellow Weather Warning issued by Sandwell Council it is our intention to open the Academy as normal on Monday 5th March 2018. Of course, if the heating problems cannot be resolved satisfactorily then we will update you via our website, other social media platforms and the local radio.
WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.
