Head Teacher's Message
Message from the Headteacher
Added on the 27/03/2017
On Wednesday Year 8 students attended the annual Trust Careers Fair. This was well attended by businesses from the community and our thanks to them for giving their time to provide careers information to students before they start thinking about GCSE options next year.

On Thursday all Year 9 and Year 10 students watched a performance called ‘Tough Love’. This had strong messages for the students about domestic violence and coercion within relationships. The students were attentive and showed their maturity in being able to think through and respond to a complex topic.

On Friday, we welcomed our local MP, Jonathan Djanogly, to the Sixth Form Centre as he spoke with Year 12 & 13 students studying Politics affording them the opportunity to question him on a number of local and national issues including Brexit, Scottish independence and school funding. Also on Friday, as a Red Nose Day Super School, we had a non-uniform day and Sport-a-thon. Many students were involved in sport all day in addition to the staff v. student competitions running through the week. We will have raised in excess of £2000 so congratulations to all of those involved.

At the end of this week the ski trip leaves for Austria and we wish them an enjoyable time.

Also on Friday of this week we will be having an additional assembly for Year 11 to talk through the next very important weeks including the Easter break. It is vital that all of the students spend this time wisely in terms of revision and exam preparation. There is a detailed programme of revision sessions on at school throughout the Easter break. A timetable has been sent out to all parents and this can also be found on the website by clicking on the Revision and Intervention button and going into the Final Furlong page.
