During the year we organise fun events for students, parents and carers to raise funds for the Academy and raise the profile of the Academy within the wider community. 

The Parent Voice Team has two functions:
  • To work with students, parents/carers and the Academy to improve two-way communication.
  • To organise fun events to raise funds for specific Academy projects and equipment, as well as to raise the profile of the Academy in the wider community.  Currently funds are being raised for tiered seating and science/IT equipment.
