On Wednesday 26th September we will be having photographers in school to take year group photos. It will be a single photo of the whole year group.
These photos will be available to buy in the usual way. The school may display them internally but won’t use them for marketing purposes and won’t put them on the website or social media.
Most parents have already given their permission for us to take photos in school when they filled in their contact details and some parents have told us that we should not take pictures of their child. We will, of course, follow your decisions but if any parents want to give special permission for just this one photo please make a note in your child’s homework diary before Wednesday.
I would also like to remind year 7 parents to return the contact details sheets, which includes the photo permissions, if you have not already done so.
Unfortunately any pupil who does not have parental permission by Wednesday morning will not be able to be in the photo.
Year 6 Open Evening
We will be holding our annual year 6 Open Evening on Thursday 27th September starting at 6.30. Please see our open evening page under the parents tab for more details. We also offer tours of the school every Tuesday morning this half term. Contact Mrs Woodward at school for more details.
Design Technology Technician Vacancy
We have a vacancy for a design technology technician. Please see below for the application pack and application form.
I would ask that parents exercise care and consideration towards pupils in school with a nut allergy when planning the contents of lunch boxes. We have a number of students who have severe nut allergies and can be seriously affected by someone else who is eating – or may have recently eaten – nuts. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
Please note that although we are striving to be a nut-free school, it is impossible to provide an absolute guarantee that no nuts will be brought onto the premises.
It has been another fantastic set of results for our students. 87% of pupils achieved a grade 4 (old C grade) in maths and 86% achieved the grade in English which is well above national averages.
Nearly half our pupils achieved at least one 7-9 / A-A* grade, with many pupils achieving 5 or more of these top grades including 16 pupils who achieved the new grade 9s (which is beyond an old A*). Milly Gibson achieved 7 grade 9s which put her in the top 700 pupils in the country!
We are absolutely delighted with these results. Our pupils have worked incredibly hard and fully deserve these outstanding grades. What is particularly pleasing is the amount of progress our pupils have made since primary school with large numbers of pupils exceeding national expectations by over a grade per subject. Special mention has to be made of Oliver Bazeley who achieved an average of 3 grades higher than national expectations in all his GCSE courses.
Well done year 11!
