Parent Bulletin 23.11.18

This week

The highlight of the week was of course our production, Les Miserables. This production was truly one of the best, if not the best we have ever produced. All three nights were amazing and if you did not get to see it, I urge you to come to our next production. All students gave their very best and worked incredibly well together under the leadership of a very dedicated team of teachers and other staff. Thank you to all involved for entertaining us all week and performing so well with such a challenging production.


As mentioned in an email to all parents/carers yesterday, we are moving away from our biometric/finger scanning system to a fob system. The new system will start on Monday, 3rd December. The fobs will be distributed in school for use from that date. They will work across all serveries including in the Sixth Form. Please be aware that Independent Catering will charge £5 for lost fobs. The new system is designed to improve the speed at which children are served food at break and lunch. ParentPay is not affected. This remains the online payment method for topping up accounts.

Coming up
