Update 26/04/18

The academy site survey is ongoing and there is still no evidence of further damage to asbestos containing material, however, due to the area of site we are currently able to occupy the decision has been taken to remain closed to Years 7-9 tomorrow (Friday 27th April).  The academy will remain open to Years 10-14 and those students are asked to attend the academy as normal. Once further buildings are completed, and the available teaching space increases the site will open to more year groups.  In order to reassure parents that the buildings are safe, a representative of West Coast Surveys has issued the following statement: ‘I have now completed the asbestos management survey in Blocks A B and admin only C block. Although asbestos is present on site I have not found any more that requires immediate attention and happy for areas surveyed to be re-occupied.’
