Mobile phones

Students may bring their mobile phones and smart devices into the academy. However, it is their responsibility to look after them. Mobile phones and smart devices must be kept out of sight in bags and not used by students during the academy day. This includes lesson times, break, lunch, before the start and at the end of the day.  If a student uses their mobile phone during these times it will be confiscated and returned to the student at the end of the day, following a C4 detention.
