I wanted to say a huge well-done to Arwen Stewart in Year 7. Arwen recently took part in the European Karate Championships in Hungary. She is obviously an extremely talented martial artist as she won gold in the team kata, gold in the team kumite and silver in individual kata. What an incredible achievement!
Rebecca Dawbarn (Head of Sixth Form), the Leadership Team and I look forward to warmly welcoming all our prospective Sixth Form students to our Open Evening starting at 6.00 pm on Thursday 2 November in the main hall.
This is your opportunity to discuss course content and choices with teachers and students prior to applying for a place here. Our electronic prospectus can be found on the front page of our website.
We wish for all our students to have high aspirations for their future - to study at a top university, move on to apprenticeships or join a first rate business with excellent career prospects.
We have been running a competition in Year 7 to create a form poster in each Tutor group that tells us something about each student.
I have been looking at some of them this morning and I'm really impressed with the detail and effort which has gone into them. I particularly like 7SN's poster where each student has been represented by a Disney character whose name begins with the same initial. Brilliant!
I am a strong advocate for the provision of student leadership opportunities and I am pleased that we are once again able to honour some of our current Year 10 students with the privilege of becoming School Prefect. Charged with leading the students, supporting the staff and working to ensure a strong future for all; the Prefect role is a demanding yet fulfilling opportunity. The role of Prefect provides a great opportunity to gain experience and develop the skills required to undertake future leadership roles.
Over the next few weeks, the Year 10 students will be given the opportunity to apply to become a Prefect. There are just 32 spaces available and these places will be strongly fought for. Once the applications are in, the Prefects will be selected though a combination of both staff and student votes.
I look forward to reading the applications and wish all of the students the very best of luck.
Date: Thursday 5th October 2017 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Presentation in the hall at 6pm by the Headteacher and Deputy Head, with student tour guides afterwards.

4 Day Trip to Seville, Andalucía, Spain 17th - 20th July 2018
We are incredibly excited to propose a trip to Seville, in the southern region of Andalucía, Spain for July 2018. Seville is a vibrant, picturesque and historical city, where we will be able to experience traditional flamenco dance, a visit to the thrilling theme park Isla Mágica and whole day trips to the magnificent, ancient cities of Córdoba and Granada.
We are hoping to take along as many students of Spanish as possible, as this will be a particularly advantageous opportunity to enhance both cultural and historical insight and linguistic expertise.
Congratulations to all the students from this half term who achieved an Academic Success Award. This is to recognise their outstanding academic achievement and attitude.
The awards are given by class teachers to those students who have shone in terms of working extra hard in and out of lessons, or persevering with difficult work, along with those who have exceeded their personal target grades and achieved at a high level.
Well done to all students and keep up these really high standards for the rest of the year.
