Dear Parents & Carers

I really enjoyed meeting the parents and children who came along to our Open Evening yesterday. It was pleasing to hear so much positive feedback. Please do let us know if you have any questions about any aspect of the school or admissions in general. We are running tours throughout October which can be booked by phoning 01926 493805 or emailing

I’d like to say a huge thank you to the many students who were an integral part of the event. You made it the success it was. From Year 7 students showcasing our sports provision, to Year 8 & 10 acting as tour guides, and the many sixth formers who helped to welcome our visitors and talk about their subjects with such enthusiasm – you were a credit to your parents and the school.  (more…)

  • Sarah Crossan: Weight of Water
