Pupils have now met all their new teachers, completing the second week of their two-week timetable. They are making their way from lesson to lesson using the one-way system which has remained in place from last year and are getting to grips with the timings of the school day.


Year 7 have settled in well and have been so well supported by the older pupils as they get used to life in a secondary school and Year 11 are knuckling down to their studies in their final year supported by their teachers and the pastoral team. Alongside their studies they are beginning to think more seriously about their next steps post-16. To support them with this Mr Purslow (CEIAG Coordinator) has arranged for representatives from the local colleges to come into school and meet with our pupils. Please see below further details.


Don’t forget that as well as keeping you up-to-date via the Weekly Message there are other ways that you can find out about what is going on in school each week and join with us in celebrating the work and achievements of our fantastic pupils – you can follow us on Twitter @cams_hill and on Facebook.

High School Musical Auditions


Wow! What a fantastic turn out for auditions this week for ‘High School Musical’. It was so wonderful to have the Drama studios alive with noise and excitement again after a year and a half on pause. Pupils from Year 7 to Year 11 flocked in their numbers to show off their singing, dancing and acting talent.


Thank you and well done to everyone who came along to audition; we really appreciate your support and enthusiasm to get involved. The casting is in process; whatever the outcome, we are proud of you.
