The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolA warm welcome to our new Year 7 students and their families and a huge welcome back to our existing students. After such a long period away from school, it has been great to see the children back in classes and learning; it has been too long! Meeting our new students and then seeing the return of familiar faces has been an absolute pleasure.
For students in Years 8-11, things are quite different to when they were last here, with the set-up of separate year group zones, which has restricted movements around the school, and break and lunchtime arrangements being at staggered times. Overall students have settled very well to the new arrangements and timings.
We are working hard to make sure that despite the differences, school remains a safe and welcoming place, where students are happy and can continue to develop a love of learning and fulfil their aspirations. Full attendance is important and so far, this has been excellent; let’s keep this momentum going.
In the current climate, it is more important than ever that we follow the guidance and recommendations to keep us all safe and well - read more......

School Canteen Payment Cards - Our sincere apologies to all parents and students who have encountered difficulties with using the new canteen payment system. This was to replace the fingerprint biometric system and to mitigate any risk associated with the spread of the Corona virus. Unfortunately, this week we have experienced some unexpected technical problems, which are being resolved - read more......

We Are All In This Together - It continues to be unprecedented times for everyone. As throughout the pandemic, things change, often at quite short notice and society responds and adapts swiftly to any requirements and guidance.
School is no different, each day we are making adaptations to ensure the day runs smoothly and staff and students remain safe and secure as much as we can. Our children’s education must continue and with home and school working together in partnership we can get through this; at present, it is just a different way of working.
If you do have any concerns regarding your child’s education or well-being, please do not hesitate to contact the school via the admin email in the first instance; and a member of the pastoral team will get back to you as soon as possible. Please see our Weekly Newsletter to read more.......

    Late to school ?

    If you son/daughter is late to school please contact us by phone prior to 8.45am or send them in with a letter.
    They then go to the attendance hub to collect a pass to justify their lateness. This avoids receiving a sanction for lateness. Otherwise your son/daughter should go straight to form or their lessons; they will receive a C2 if they arrive after the bell or a C3 in they arrive after 8.50am.
    Visit the Attendance webpage for more information.
