We have a lot of very happy students collecting their results today – congratulations to each and every one of them on their individual successes and to their families for their support; I wish them health and happiness as they embark on university courses or other choices. Special thanks to Rebecca Dawbarn (Head of Sixth Form) who has yet again led our large Sixth Form exceptionally well with her tutors, subject leaders and teachers.

At the top of the school playing field lays an area of land currently being developed to create an Outdoor Learning Area. For the past couple of years we have been improving the space and in April 2016 started our first ever gardening club.
