COVID-19 Home Testing

Friday 19 March 2021

Thank you to all of our Parents/Carers who have supported COVID testing in the academy, we have tested 92% of our school population, which is incredible. The students have been brilliant during this process showing real maturity and respect to each other and staff.

From Monday 22 March Home Testing will come into place and we want to encourage you to continue what we have started in the academy with your commitment to home testing to ensure we all stay safe. It is recommended that testing is conducted on Monday’s and Thursday’s weekly and results are recorded. Students’ will regularly be given home testing kits and on Friday 19 March each student will be given two boxes of tests containing a total of 6 tests (3 weeks).Although we have not yet received confirmation, we are hopeful that we will receive another delivery prior to the Easter holiday enabling us to distribute them either on or before 31 March to continue through the holiday.

We have prepared a short video for you below which takes you through step by step how to take a home test and how to register and record results. Please report any positive student results as soon as possible to the academy either by sending an email to or by calling the academy as soon as the phone lines are open after the positive result.

We would once again like to thank you all for your support.
