We are proud to be the recipients of the Croydon SACRE WIRE Award, the first secondary school in the borough to be given this honour.

Red Nose Day 2021

We LOVE Red Nose Day at the Academy; fundraising and dressing up- what more could you ask for?! This Year we decided to combine our Comic Relief celebrations with World Book Day, as the date was missed in school due to the recent lockdown. Therefore, this year students and staff dressed up as either a literary character, something red, or better yet- a red literary character!

Horizons iPads issued to all students

“I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff; I appreciate it must be so tough teaching online and managing everything. And finally, thank you so much for the iPads!”

“We are very grateful for the iPads that have been provided by the school”

Receiving this feedback from parents after the roll-out of the Horizons iPads at Coulsdon has made the busy schedule of the past few weeks all the more worthwhile. We are delighted that 93% of our Horizons cohort now have their iPads to enhance their online learning from home. This means that over 700 of our students now have sole use of a device at home to ensure that can fully access their online lessons and minimise the disruption to their learning during this second school closure.
