Headteacher’s update

Open Evening

On Monday 17th September, we will be holding our Open Evening for primary students and parents/carers to visit us as they make their decision on which High School to attend. The school will be open from 6pm to 8pm with a talk from myself taking place at 6.15pm in the Main Hall. If you have a Year 6/5 primary student, please feel free to visit us and take a tour around the classrooms where they will be able to experience what it will be like at our school and see what exciting topics they will have the chance to study should they choose to come to our school.

As many students will be helping on the evening and to enable time to prepare for the evening, school will finish at 2pm. Should your child wish to catch to school bus at 3pm please let the school know and we will make appropriate arrangements.

Should you not be able to attend on Monday evening we have a number of open mornings and afternoons as listed below.

A member of staff is always at hand to assist the students. Additionally, there are numerous resources available, including laptops/tablets to aid their learning.


Mrs Ward’s creative work of the week is awarded to Lillie-Mae in Year 7 for her amazing tonal drawing of a tiger.

The quality of this piece of work is GCSE standard already. Keep up the amazing work Lillie Mae!


Congratulations to the Year 10 Drama GCSE Group who performed their Blood Brothers scripted performances on Monday.
