Parent Information Meetings
Thank you to all parents that attended recent meetings on Microsoft Teams. The presentations from meetings for Year 7, 10, 11 and 12 are available here. Year 8 and 9 presentations will be added this week following the meetings for these year groups.
Planning for the possibility of future lockdown
In the event of a further lockdown, we have clear remote learning plans in place which include virtual tutor time on Microsoft Teams and ensuring students are able to learn effectively from home with an online learning offer, including live streamed lessons via Microsoft Teams, video and audio input and sharing of learning resources on satchel:one.
It is essential that all CGA students have access to a suitable electronic device at home. If your child does not have regular access to a Chromebook, laptop or PC, please contact us by Friday 2 October. We will have more £99 Chromebooks available for purchase from the academy by mid-October. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this scheme.
Expectations of students
Apart from school footwear which needs to be correct for the beginning of next half term, students are now expected to be in full school uniform or school PE kit on the days when they have PE. If you are experiencing difficulties in buying the correct uniform, please contact us so that we can support with this.
Applications for CGA Sixth Form
Applications for September 2021 entry to our Sixth Form are welcomed from our Year 11 students. Students can apply here. We will be holding our virtual sixth form open evening on Wednesday 25 November at 5pm.
