Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers

Well done to all those students who received merit certificates in assemblies this week. Students received either a bronze (25 merits), a silver (50 merits) or a gold (100 merits) award. You will have seen in your child’s pocket diary that each week they receive a sticker showing the running total of merits. For all students who haven’t yet received a certificate, there is still the opportunity to work towards it when they come back to school next half term.

We’ve seen some great work in school this week. Our Year 11 Food Preparation and Nutrition students have been doing their GCSE controlled assessments. These assessments are a chance for students to show off their skills and knowledge. I’m sure you’ll agree, these dishes look delicious and wouldn’t look out of place in a restaurant setting. (more…)
