New Academy Online Community Platform

During Covid lockdowns, we used an online community called BuddyBoss where you can access all your teachers materials, message your teacher directly and connect with other parents. It is safe and password protected directly through our domain. Ie no third party. 

To log in, go to our website and in the right side of the menu click either sign in or sign up if you haven’t registered before.

It will take you to the registration or login page. If the registration picks up your email, you can use the ‘lost your password’ at the bottom of the form and follow the prompts.

Once registered, your sign up will be pending and I will asign you with relevant groups. 

You can then set up your own profile and access other groups. We will also add a theory group where students will be able to access free resources tosupport their learning @The Academy.
