Any late applications will be strictly at the discretion of myself or Mrs Williamson and will be subject to an additional admin fee as per the information on the website, in our beginners handbook, and on the grading forms.

There’s no excuse for late applications folks, the dates are consistent and published at least 12 months in advance (they have been on the website through to the end of 2022 since January)

Graduation – Thursday 30th September

Very happy to say that for the first time since Covid hit we’ll be able to hold a proper graduation event!

This will be at the Chantry Centre in Dursley, Thursday 30th September,doors open 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start.

This is an important event for the WHOLE SCHOOL and all student should be in proper uniform – regardless of whether they graded or not.

As always, this is an open event, you’re welcome to invite the whole family and bring a camera. It’s been a long wait for this one, let’s make it a proper celebration!   

Questions about gradings….

We often get a few questions about gradings, so can I please remind everyone that there’s a LOT of information on the Academy website, and in your beginners handbooks.

A reminder of those links again:

That’s all for now folks.

Remember it’s pre-grading week this week and your classes form part of your grading assessment so 100% effort from the moment you walk in the door please!
