Academy Photographs

Dear Parent/Carer,

Re: Academy Photographs

On Friday 2nd October, your child will have their yearly photograph taken by Van Cols, our usual photography provider.  All students should be in full academy uniform for their photographs.

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, only individual photographs will be taken; we are not able to provide tutor group or sibling photographs at present.

The taking of photographs will be as ‘Covid secure’ as possible, with the photographers standing behind screens and distanced from your child. Your child will be asked to stand on a marker, and will not be sat down during the process, ensuring that none of the students will be coming into contact with any surfaces.

Students will also be provided with hand sanitiser before entering and on leaving the Sports Hall.  Students will be expected to wear face coverings whilst waiting for their photograph to be taken and in communal areas whilst transitioning around the building as usual.

Timetabled PE lessons:

If you have a child in Year 8 Chaucer or Darwin Colleges, or Year 10 Brunel or Da Vinci colleges on Friday 2nd October, they will NOT be taking part in practical PE on that day and will instead have a PE Theory lesson.  Your child must arrive at the academy in their full uniform for the day.

If you have any queries or concerns then please contact me on

Yours faithfully,

Lisa Bodle
Assistant Head of College with responsibility for year 10
Literacy Co-ordinator and MyON Lead
