The CPD day on Friday March 4th 2016 has been moved to Monday 11th April. The revised calendar can be viewed and downloaded on the Calendars page.

Friday 4th March is a normal school day and students are expected to be in school.

As parents you need to know that registering for free school meals is important for two reasons:

1. You will be reassured that your child has access to a healthy lunchtime meal.
2. You will know that the school is in receipt of additional funding to support interventions targeted to raise your child’s achievement and aspirations.

The service premium is extra funding for schools to support children and young people with parents in the armed forces.

Dear Parents/Carers

I am delighted to report that there has been excellent progress made within and around the school during what has been an exceedingly busy term.

With the examinations being so close to the start of the new term, pupils have been reminded of the importance of revising and preparing for these examinations. Please note the examinations are formal external examinations and pupils will receive their results in the Spring term.
