  • Severe Weather Update

    Owing to the severe weather warning, I have decided to leave the decision as to whether children attend school on Monday and Tuesday (18th and 19th July) up to parents/carers. School will be open as normal to any child that does attend. I will be authorising absence for any child whose parents choose to keep them off school. In line with school policy, could I ask that parents/carers telephone the school from 8am if they do decide to keep their children at home on Monday and Tuesday.

  • 6th Form Graduation

    The severe weather warning for the beginning of next week continues, and we are having to review plans for the last week of term. The 6th form graduation on Tuesday was planned to be held outside. This is now not possible due to the weather warning, and we have no air conditioned spaces large enough to accommodate the amount of expected attendees. We fully appreciate how important this event is to our school leavers and their parents/carers, as many have been with us for their whole school career however, the health and safety of our students must take priority.

  • Parent/Carer Survey 2022

I have therefore re-opened the survey for a further week – it will close at the end of school this Friday (24 th June). Huge thanks to anyone who has already completed the survey. If you have not yet done so, could I please urge that you do at some point this week.
