Dear Parents & Carers

At this time of year in secondary schools we have the pleasure of showing ourselves off to prospective parents with children in Year 6. Thank you to all the parents and children who have visited us this term so far, either on our school tours or at last month’s Open Evening.

Every day the school leadership team walk the school corridors and visit classrooms but we tend to be heading somewhere specific where we may be able to add support or solve a problem. However, when accompanying a school tour, we wander along at a more leisurely pace, pop into classrooms at random, and witness children enjoying a rich variety of learning styles. (more…)


How to teach children about strangers

Year 7 Halloween Disco

A reminder that if your child would like to come to the Year 7 Halloween Disco on Thursday 24 October you need to buy them a ticket on ParentPay. If you have not yet activated your ParentPay account or you have any queries about how to use it, please contact the Finance Office on 01926 405747 and we’ll help you get started.

Sixth Form Open Evening

Our Sixth Form Open Evening will take place on Thursday 14 November between 5.30pm-8pm. There will be a presentation by Ms Stevens, our Head of Sixth Form and students at 6pm and again at 7pm.

Aimed at Year 11 students and their families, the event is a chance to talk to staff and students about subject choices and chat with current students about life in our sixth form. (more…)
