Mobile Phones, MP3 Players, Smartwatches and Tablets

Whilst the Academy accepts that mobile phones and other electronic devices are now part of everyday life, we strongly discourage students from bringing them to school.

The Academy has banned electronic devices (including mobile phones) as they disrupt learning, hamper student progress and can cause conflict.
