Dear Parents and Carers

Next week is a snapshot of school life; the Duke of Edinburgh trip is out over this weekend, we have the Year 7 Bushcraft trips starting, moderation in Art, Photography and ICT, speaking exams for GCSEs in Modern Foreign Languages, evening events and it’s the last week before the full cohort GCSEs start. It will no doubt be busy but rewarding for everybody and I am delighted to see so many students on the DofE trip and the Bushcraft trips. These are fun opportunities to learn new skills but for me, some of the greatest gains can be made in social development. It is this area that we believe the most work must be done to catch students up post Covid.
