Dear Parent/Guardian

It has been an incredibly busy term with lots of celebrations, trips and events including the Dancequest project, the Quinsound concert, the Year 11 Prom and the Paris trip. Our Awards Evening held last night was a huge success, and really showcased the talent and potential of pupils here at Four Dwellings Academy.


Significant improvements in provision and our relentless focus on high standards and expectations have transformed the academy over the past 2 years. This couldn’t have been achieved without the support from our parents and carers and I would like to extend my sincere thanks to you all. Four Dwellings Academy has a bright future ahead!

The Autumn term begins on Friday 4th September (for new year 7 only), and Monday 7th September for all other pupils. A reminder of the uniform expectations can be found overleaf.

Have a great summer break and I look forward to another successful year working together.

Kind regards 
 

Becky Elcocks Principal
