Gladstone Primary Academy

The Academy Day

The timings of the academy day are slightly different on each site, to allow parents to drop off and pick up children at both sites.

Drop off times can be very busy, especially if you are driving to school. We ask parents to park responsibly and respect the yellow zig zag lines outside each site. These restrictions help keep all children to stay safe. There is a large car park next to the Bourges Boulevard site and it is easier to park here and walk your child to the school gates.
