Working closely with students’ families is a crucial part of our work at the Young People’s Academy – we want to ensure that the school is doing everything it can to support and nurture our students to achieve their ambitions. Although the most recent survey has now closed, you are always welcome to contact the school to discuss any issue that you feel we need to know about. Your feedback helps us to focus on key areas for improvement and the issues that are important to you and your child.

We regularly survey our students and parents to gain valuable information about their views of the school. Our last student survey was conducted in Autumn Term 2016. Please click the link below to see the results:
