Academy Day

"Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same amount of hours per day that were given to… Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein. You can do it."


Aylward Academy Timetable

It is the responsibility of parents/carers to ensure that their child arrives punctually for the formal start to the Academy day at 8.40am. The Academy is open to students from 8.00am and a breakfast service is provided by Olive Dining until 8.30am.

The Academy day ends at 3.10pm. Please be aware that the parent or carer is responsible for arranging their child's safe transport from the Academy to home.
