  • Closure due to Industrial Action

    25th September 2013 - Queen Elizabeth's Academy

    As you may be aware from the local media, there is to be a one day regional strike held by teachers who are members of the NUT/NASUWT on Tuesday 1st October 2013. Unfortunately, I will have to close the Academy to students on that day as there are insufficient teaching staff on site during that day and therefore the safety of children could also be at risk.

    The Academy will be open as usual on Wednesday 2nd October 2013 onwards.

    Thank you for your understanding.
