Friday was one of those magical days that don't get captured in league tables and government statistics. All of our staff and students were totally on board to share one goal- raising as much money as possible for Children In Need.
From cake sales and films clubs to karaoke; from splatting teachers with cream pies to table tennis tournaments, students and staff led activities that made us smile and made us laugh. Above all there was a sense of togetherness and mutual support. These are the days that our students will remember forever and these are the days that will truly shape them as young people.
Standing in the Hall at lunchtime, I was filled with an overwhelming sense of pride for our school, our staff and our students. When the email came through to say that we had raised £1437.31 including £402.65 at lunchtime alone I realised (not for the first time) that I have the best job in the world leading our amazing school.
Have a fantastic week.

We feel that it is crucial for you as parents and carers to be aware of and help us promote all the opportunities which are designed to support and enhance achievement for our students.

Our approach to Year 11, GCSE studies and exams has been refined over recent years with excellent outcomes and growing success, and we look forward to working with you and the students to achieve even better this year.
Year 10 are making a great start to the GCSE Geography course.
The quality of the work by some students is outstanding.
Well done to all students who took part in reading challenge. Some of them met in Mr Jones's room on Wednesday lunchtime and discussed what they had been reading. The range of books was very wide, and the enthusiasm was excellent.
Look out for more reading events through the year.
