Water Only Learning Zone


It has long been accepted that the right nutrition and hydration supports optimum learning. Too often students will choose a sweet drink rather than water, which is what their body really needs. It is estimated that a 2% drop in hydration could lead to as much as a 10% drop in cognitive function (understanding and learning).  

Manchester Academy has therefore decided to be a water-only learning zone from January 2016. No drinks other than water will be allowed in school. Please do not allow your child to bring alternative drinks with them. All students should bring with them a clear water bottle, like the ones issued to all students in November 2015. These can be purchased from Student Services at a cost of £1 each.  

If you would like further information, please contact Mrs Fiona Smith, Vice Principal.
