Your child should wear their primary school uniform. The uniform for September is available to purchase directly from Vortex.


Your child will need to come to school and return home via the method of transport they will be using in September. Or, you may wish to arrange alternative transport.

Lunch Time Arrangements

Your child will have full access to the catering facilities, so should bring £6 on the first day to pay for school lunch. If they are in receipt of free school meals we will already have received this information from primary schools.


It is advisable to bring a refillable water bottle. Water fountains are available in the Academy to refill bottles. Please note that fizzy drinks and energy drinks are not allowed in the Academy.

We know that moving from primary school to secondary school is an exciting time for you and your child. We know that it can also be a worrying time for children and parents as your child gets used to a new environment and new experiences. If you do have any queries, please do contact Mrs Fell
