PE Kit Notice

Pupils in Year 8 and above only need to buy the new PE kit as and when they need to replace the kit they currently own.

Pupils’ trainers from all years can be any colour as long as they are not basketball/baseball boots and they are appropriate footwear for the practical activities they will be doing.

Headteacher’s Update – 20th August

The GCSE results were published today. Overall, given the changes made to the examination system and grading it is too early to assess how well we have done, but the percentage of higher grades (C+) have increased from 2014 as have the number of A/A* grades.  In addition, the results show some great individual performances.  English and Science performed well, and we were particularly pleased with the outcomes in Modern Foreign Languages.

Whilst the school population remains on holiday can I remind parents that the Trust, in line with Department for Education expectations, does issue fixed penalty notices for children taken out of school in term-time for additional holidays, even if only for one week.  Whilst I can sympathise with the reasoning behind the vacation it is unusual for me to authorise a term-time holiday.  The penalty notice is a charge of £120 on each parent, regardless of whether the child lives with both parents or not.

School restarts for students on Monday 7th September 2015 (Year 7 – 8.40am; Year 11 – 9.15am; Year 8, 9 and 10 – 10.00am).  Teaching staff return for training on 3rd September.

I look forward to meeting our new students in September.  We have a vibrant and dynamic year planned that will build upon our successes to date and further accelerate our progress.
