  • Mock Exam Success

    We are committed towards ensuring that our Year 11s are able to maximise their exam potential and the Year 11 Mock Exams play an key role in supporting this drive. 

    It has therefore been great to see the countless examples of individual student success highlighted by the results and I would like to thank the Year 11 students for the effort towards these exams.

    With the new 1-9 grading system in place, a grade 5 denotes what is nationally being considered as a 'Strong Pass'.

    I would therefore like to offer a special Congratulations to the following Year 11 students who achieved a Grade 5 or above in all of their Mock Exams.

  • Prize Winners Tea 2018


    It was lovely to see so many of our past Year 13 students and parents at our Prize Winners Awards Evening. One of my favourite parts of this job is when students are at the end of their school career and we have seen them change and grow into young adults. More so at Sixth Form level, when you know what exciting opportunities at university and in the world of work they have left to do. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about what you’ve been up to. A complete photo gallery can be found at the bottom of this article.

  • Congratulations on an Incredible Achievement!


    I wanted to take the time to say a huge well-done to Arwen Stewart in Year 8.

    Arwen recently took part in the World Karate Championships in London. She is clearly an extremely talented martial artist as she won gold in the team, female kata. She also won bronze in the team kumite and bronze again in mixed team kata with Luca Occhionero who’s one of our Year 7 students.

    What an incredible achievement for both pupils!

  • Year 8 - Sky High ATLs

    Mr Sayce recently met with 58 students in Year 8 who in their last reports scored an average ATL of 3.5 or above. The highest possible score is 4, so 3.5 is a very high ATL and shows exceptional dedication to their studies across all their subjects.

    Mr Sayce talked with the students about the importance of working hard and maintaining this fantastic dedication to learning. The studentss were challenged to see if they could maintain this level of commitment through the autumn term.

    Once again, Year 8s are proving they are up to the challenge of being the best year group and setting the bar high for the rest of the school. Keep up the brilliant work.
