It has been lovely to see everyone back, in stages, this week. The COVID testing process was handled well and only one positive case was identified.  There have been far more positive points on Classcharts than negative (81% positive so far this week) and the school is settling calmly back into the New Year.  

All year groups

  • Uniform:  Please be aware that one of our focuses for the coming week is student uniform.  Please ensure that your son or daughter comes to school in the correct uniform - there are no changes to our uniform policy.
  • Message from Mr Moore (Head of PE): Please note that if a student fails to bring their PE kit to school, refuses to borrow a kit or refuses to participate in PE then the PE Department will be following school policy's regarding lesson participation and kit. A copy of this can be found on our website here.
  • ASPIRE Day 3 (2 Feb):  For our next ASPIRE day we are giving the students a wide range of enrichment opportunities to choose from.  Please discuss them with your son or daughter - this list is on the website here
