Welcome to my blog.

The mock exams are now in full swing for our Year 11 students. Students have been studying hard and coping very well with pressure that exams bring. Mock exams will continue until Thursday 22nd November. Mock exam results day will be on Thursday 13th December, further information will come out closer to the time.

On Monday, some Year 10 pupils participated in the Speaker’s Trust ‘Speak Out’ challenge. Pupils were encouraged to stand in front of a group of their peers and deliver a speech of up to two minutes on a topic of their choice. Speaking in front of your peers can be a very daunting experience, even as an adult. I am extremely proud of the students that took part.

Today, a bake sale was held in school in order to raise money for Children In Need. The selection of treats available to purchase went down a storm and I am sure we have raised a great amount for Children In Need – thank you.

Don’t forget, students will finish school at 2.30pm as normal on Thursday 22nd November. School will be closed on Friday 23rd November as this is a staff training day.
We will open as normal on Monday 26th November.
