Awards Evenings and Celebration Assemblies


We have ended our year with some wonderful Awards Evenings and Celebration Assemblies for pupils in Years 7-10.


On Thursday 13 July we celebrated the end of year with an Awards Evening for pupils in Year 7 and 8.  Subject awards for outstanding effort and commitment and outstanding achievement and progress were awarded to pupils across all subjects.  A variety of special awards were also given to pupils including the Governors’ Award, School Council and Headteacher’s Award. Throughout the evening we enjoyed musical performances from the string ensemble, the show choir and the phenomenal Year 8 rock band “Greenish” who received a standing ovation!


On Monday evening, it was time to celebrate the achievements of pupils in Year 9 and 10 with the Events Hall bursting at the seams.  We were treated to musical performances from the show orchestra and the soul band.  Our pupils are a credit to the school, and we are very proud of them all.  Thank you to all parents/carers who attended these very special evenings.


This week, each year group has also had their end of term Celebration Assembly, a fun and joyous occasion with lots of laughter to round off what has been another exceptional academic year.

Staff Cook Club




Super effort from all the staff who attended our final Staff Cook Club of the year. The classic lemon meringue pie was on the menu and staff made a zesty, light lemon curd centre, topped with peaks of billowy meringue. There were some excellent results from such a technical challenge as this and they tasted as good as they looked!


Young Carers’ Cook Club




Our final Young Carers’ Cook Club of the year took place this week. These sessions help the pupils develop cooking skills, whilst socialising with other young carers of a similar age. Pupils made cupcakes and pizza where they were able to practice kneading, shaping, and piping techniques. The best bit though was to enjoy the fruits of their labour and taste test the practical outcomes!
