As we conclude the fifth week, the Autumn Term is now very much underway. Pupils are engaging exceptionally well with their learning across the curriculum and there has been good take-up with the extra-curricular and co-curricular opportunities that are offered. Please see our website for further information about our extra-curricular and co-curricular activities programme.

The weather has been relatively kind to us this week, but we remind parents/carers that pupils spend their breaktime and lunchtimes outside (if not eating in the Dining Hall) only moving to a ‘wet break’ if the rain is heavy and persistent. We therefore encourage those without coats in school to bring one with them every day.

As it gets cooler, we remind pupils, parents and carers that pupils are permitted to wear the PE jumper, the school jumper or a plain navy blue, round neck sweatshirt (sweatshirts with logos are not permitted) under their blazer for an extra layer of warmth.  Please be advised that other jumpers/hoodies are not permitted.


Prospective Parent/Carer Tours

 Our staff and senior pupil leadership team have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming prospective Year 7 parents/carers into school to see the school community in action on a usual working day. We still have places available on the tours scheduled for next week; if you wish to join a tour, please contact us on 01329 231641.


Year 7 and Year 10 Parent/Carer Evenings

Our first parent/carer evenings are due to take place on 12 October 2021 – the Year 7 Settling-in and Learning Support Evening and the Year 10 Parent Tutor Evening. Both evenings will take place face-to-face on the school site. Parents/carers have been sent further details.
