A message from Assistant Principal, Mr Costello

posted 9 Sep 2017, 09:12 by Michele Colt
We would like to warmly welcome you to the new academic year and hope that you have had a restful break. It has been fantastic to see the students back this week and we have been very impressed with the standard of their summer homework tasks and the manner and verve with which they have approached lessons. 

We would like to take the opportunity to remind you that we have very high expectations in terms of behavior at the academy, including conduct on the journey to and from school. Students who meet and exceed these expectations can expect to be rewarded regularly via our new rewards system. Students failing to meet these standards will be dealt with as outlined in the school behaviour policy, which is available on the RPA website. We will continue to run class, no notice and SLT Saturday detentions throughout the year. 

In terms of uniform, please ensure that your child attends school on time with the correct uniform. This is outlined in the school planner and includes formal black leather shoes (no trainers), black school trousers or skirt, white collared shirt, RPA tie, jumper, blazer and a plain black coat (no hooded tops). RPA uniform is supplied by Stevenson's, Twickenham and is available on line and in store.
