Our students enjoy a pleasant atmosphere in our campus, with friendly staff and modern facilities. Students can use the library and IT facilities or relax and eat in our cafeteria. During break times students can walk along the waterside just outside the Academy, or sit on the grass in good weather by the dock and watch the water sports. We have an open door policy which means students can have access to all staff to discuss any concerns.
