Academy Exam Closures

Dear Parents/ Carers,

The Academy site will be closed on Thursday 25th May and Thursday 8th June.

This is a continued effort from the Academy’s Governing Body to ensure all staff devote 100% of their energy and time on supporting students in their core subject final examinations. It is expected that all students over time will benefit from this strategy. There are large entries in both GCSE English and Maths examinations, with extensive access/special arrangements. This, in turn, will impact on staffing levels.

The Academy site will have a half day closure on Tuesday 13th June. 

On this day the site will be closed until 11.30am to allow Year 11 students to complete a final Mathematics exam. Hampshire transport will pick up your son and arrive at school from 11.00am.

I hope by giving you a sufficient notice period this will allow you to make alternative arrangements for your son.

If you do have any concerns around these arrangements then please do not hesitate to contact me.


Yours sincerely
Christopher Berry

Today KS3 students went to a Basketball Tournament and came a very respectable second – well done to the students involved. The KS4 tournament will be next week.

On Friday Lorin La Fave from The Breck Foundation will be in talking to students about staying safe online and telling her story about her son Breck. The school is also supporting “No Tech for Breck” which is on 7th February – staff and students will not access any technology that day or will be fined! This will exclude using technology for learning!

EBP will be in on Friday talking to students about careers.

The weather is forecast to be cold this week so a reminder that jumpers and coats would be advisable to wear to school.

Gosport & Fareham Multi-Academy Trust

We are pleased to advise you that the Regional Schools Commissioner has confirmed the ‘Local Solution’ for the sponsorship of Brune Park School. The GFM (Gosport & Fareham Multi-Academy Trust) will initially consist of four schools; Bay House, Brune Park, Gomer Junior and LWS Academy. We continue to wait for the final decision on The Wave free-school application. The GFM aims to become a formal legal entity in March 2017.

We will brief you in more detail in the near future, although it remains very much business as usual at all the schools. We will continue to do all we can to support our learners in making excellent progress and achieving well. Staff meetings are also being held later this month at all the schools in the MAT to share the same information.

Cold Weather – Clothing

As you might be aware we are due some very cold weather over the next few days and we would like to ask that students arrive at the academy wearing appropriate clothing for the season.

The LWS uniform does consist of a Nike hoodie that is suitable to keep your son warm and black trousers, shorts should only be warn for sports activities.
