Year 10 mock exams: Well done to our Year 10 pupils who have been sitting mock exams. We are proud of the resilience they have shown during this time.

KS2 SATs: Our Year 6 pupils sat their mock SATs on w/c 20th March. We are proud of the maturity they have shown during this time. All Year 6 pupils received two CGP revision books bought for them by our PTA. These two books contain everything they need to know in English and Maths ready for their SATs which take place w/c 9th May.

Year 8 finals: Our Year 8 pupils will be sitting their final exams w/c 15th and 22nd May. Please have discussions with your child regarding these exams and encourage them to prepare for this time.

Progress Reports: Your child’s progress report is an important capture of their attitude towards their learning and their progress achieved this half-term. Please ensure that you have spoken with your child about their report to recognise their achievements and accomplishments as well as discuss areas for focus and improvement.

Flexible Learning: We are proud to host a variety of Flexible Learning clubs for pupils in all year groups. Please encourage your child to join as many clubs as possible. A reminder of the clubs we run can be found on our website –

School uniform: We have good quality recycled uniform and warm clothing that is available to all families. Please speak to main reception in either phase for further information on this. Any additional donations are gratefully received.

High School Musical: We are very proud of all the pupils who were involved in our performance of High School Musical last week.
