 Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club in the Acorns restaurant is for our PPG students and Key Stage 3 students.  A breakfast of juice, cereal, toast and fresh fruit will be available at a cost of £1.50 (free to PPG students).

The aim of the scheme is not only to promote healthy eating but also to support students with their reading and homework. There will be staff supervising to help with these, if required. The Breakfast Club opens at 8.00am (Monday to Thursday) and 7.30am on a Friday. This will be a great start to the day for the students, allowing them to socialise quietly with their friends, catch-up on homework or read and most importantly encourages them to eat a good breakfast.  If you have any questions please contact Mrs L Moldon at the academy.
