French Revision Club will be on in room 28 today at 12.45. We will be looking at translation (English into French) issues, including proof reading for tense errors/grammatical errors. This would benefit a number of you, regardless of your year group and all students studying French are welcome to attend.

Christmas Jumper Day
by Jack WOODLEY Y11 D 02 (Student) - Monday, 9 December 2019, 7:26 AM

On Friday 13th December we will be hosting our annual Christmas Jumper Day, supporting the charity Save The Children. The charity aids both the UK and other places around the world by making sure children are safe, healthy and ensures they learn and grow. If you choose to participate in the event you must wear the bottom half of your uniform (the Christmas jumper will replace your school jumper) and the suggested donation is £1. Usual rules regarding jewellery apply.


Thank you,

Morenike and Sean, head of Charities.

Christmas Post Notice
by Freya ADAMS Y11 S 07 (Student) - Wednesday, 4 December 2019, 8:46 PM

To all students, 


It is December and we are on the run up to Christmas! At this festive time of year, many like to send cards to friends wishing them a happy Christmas. To make this easier, we have set up our own ‘Santa Baby Post’. If you would like to send a card, write the name of the receiver and their form on the envelope. Then place the card in the big, red postbox in the foyer and we will sort the rest. 


Have a fun and festive season, 


The Santa Baby Post Office

Mobile phone use
by H Hutton (Staff) - Friday, 20 September 2019, 1:27 PM

Mobile phones should be switched off and must remain in bags during the school day, unless you are in a designated phone zone during social time. Phones should not be carried in pockets, nor should ear buds/headphones be visible at any point other than at break. Please remember, phones should not be used to make or receive calls/messages. Any student needing to contact a parent urgently should do so by visiting the Hub and asking a member of staff to make contact on their behalf.

Mr Amos/Ms Hooper
