Bullying is anti-social behaviour and affects everyone. Any form of bullying is totally unacceptable in the Academy. However, human nature being as it is, despite our culture of zero tolerance towards this issue, there may be some instances of students attempting to bully each other within the Academy – often as a result of off-site situations or incidents. Therefore, we aim to deal with any bullying complaints firmly, fairly and promptly.
We treat bullying as a serious offence and take every possible action to keep it to a minimum.
