- The final rehearsals are underway for our production of Les Miserables. In assemblies all week, members of the cast gave the whole school a taste of what is to come. They were amazing so if you have not got a ticket yet, please visit our website whilst there are still any left.
- Year 13 parents’ evening took place on Thursday. As well as the usual direct feedback from teachers a report including up to date projected grades was available to be picked up. It was good to see a good turn out and everybody working together to help our Year 13 students do their very best over the months ahead. We wish them well.
- Year 11 mock examinations extend over the two weeks beginning Monday, 26th November. All Year 11 pupils should be revising hard as these examinations will be as close as possible to the real examination experience in the summer. Teachers use the marks awarded to identify where progress has been made and where additional support over the months ahead will make all the difference.
