The Government is asking parents to keep children at home whenever possible – schools remain open only for children who need to attend.

Road Closure

Dear Parents and Carers,

Portion of Westport Road Closure:

Cadent Gas will be completing maintenance work along a portion of Westport Road starting on Monday 14th January. As a result, there will 3-way traffic lights by Jewsons but access to the Academy will remain open until Monday 28th January.

From Monday 28th a section of Westport Road will be closed completely for approximately two weeks. Whilst this work is being carried out, the road will be inaccessible at all times. However, Cadent Gas will ensure a safe walkway for those on foot.

As a result, Brownhills Road will see an increase in traffic as the only way of accessing the Academy car park. To help alleviate this, we will be opening up our tennis courts for the two weeks of the road closure. These can be used as a pick-up point for students. Staff will be on hand in the mornings and when the Academy finishes at 3:20, to ensure the safety of everyone.

Cadent Gas is taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety of the worksite, and the patience and cooperation of parents; carers and students is appreciated.

Please allow for extra time when travelling to and from the Academy. Staff will be on hand to help.

As an Academy, we appreciate your help and understanding and will keep you informed of any updates or changes as they occur. The attached map indicates where the road closure is.
