Keeping Everyone Safe

Academy Transformation Trust Further Education is a unique learning environment founded with the motto “cradle to grave learning”. We continue to successfully deliver lifelong learning to generations of people out of Trust secondary schools.

Keeping everyone safe whilst enjoying their learning is of paramount concern to us.

We therefore ask that all Further Education learners adhere to the scheduled class times when on site, that break times are taken when the tutor states and that specific toilets (as advised by your tutor) are used.

In addition we ask that you take the route directed by your tutor to and from your classroom, to help us to look after the rest of the learners on site.

If at any time when you are on site you have any queries, questions or concerns about your learning, please ask to speak with the Principal of Further Education.

The Further Education Department actively encourage you to share your views, thoughts, concerns or comments with us. Please use a feedback card to do this and then submit via our suggestion box (located in the main reception area). Should you require assistance or support in completing this form, please ask a member of the Further Education Team to help you.
