Welcome to The Discovery Academy
Message from the Principal
In light of the recent government announcement, Year 10 will not be expected to attend sessions in the Academy until the 15th June. Year 10 students who were invited to attend between 1st – 15th June, do not need to attend unless they are within the vulnerable and key worker group. Students in the vulnerable and key worker groups who attended before half term should continue to do so.
During these unprecedented and difficult times, we endeavour to continue to support all our students at The Discovery Academy with both their academic progress and wellbeing.
We are using Microsoft Teams to deliver our lessons and pastoral support to our students. Our main priority is to ensure that children remain safe and happy.
If you have any concerns regarding home learning activities, or the wellbeing of your child, no matter how small, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to being able to welcome all of our students back to the academy as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
Alpha Academies Trust Announcement
From the 1st June 2020, the Government has requested schools to begin welcoming back students, alongside the full time provision they are offering to priority groups. Alpha Academies Trust has responded by implementing detailed risk assessments to ensure it is safe to do so.

Alpha Academies Trust has also made guidance available for parents, detailing what measures will be implemented to ensure a safe learning environment when children return.
The Government have cancelled all public examinations for 2020, and staff have followed DfE guidelines whilst assessing the hard work completed by children to support a GCSE grade that will be awarded in the same way as previous years.
