This week Our thanks to Ella and Sasha who led assemblies all week to share their idea of a Plant a Tree Day on 25th November. Their idea is that if more of us plant trees and grow plants, it can be part of a wider national and international effort to combat global warming. The summer of 2022 in the UK alone was a reminder to us all that the climate is changing and more extreme weather is becoming more…

Assemblies and expectations Assemblies in the week before the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II focused on her long life dedicated to the service of others. Further reference to the life of Her Majesty was made in assemblies this week which had a theme of friendship and togetherness, where all in a community work towards the common good. This is what we aim for in successful schools – individuals supporting each other within a framework of rules and structures that are…

Queen Elizabeth II Students and staff arriving at school today (Friday) were greeted by the Union flag flying at half-mast as the nation enters a period of mourning and reflection on the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Whilst reactions to the news that broke on Thursday evening will vary from person to person, for many in our school community, this time may feel upsetting and strange and we will do our best to come together as a community to support…

Congratulations to our Year 11 students, who have achieved some excellent Key Stage 4 results. The School is extremely proud of their achievements.

This week It has certainly been one of the busiest weeks of the year so far, largely because of the return of many events that we have not been in a position to run during the pandemic. On Tuesday we welcomed students who will start in Year 7 in September for their induction day. They seemed to have a fun packed day and most looked excited about making the move to secondary school. We look forward to meeting most of…

This week In assemblies this week the topic was Right Speech. The assembly started with the familiar phrase, “Is it true, is it necessary, is it kind?” Students were asked to reflect on whether, when they speak or post online, they follow this simple rule. From the looks on many faces, it would seem they do not always do this. This is no surprise – we know when we are still growing and developing, finding our way in the world,…

This week and next The first week back from the half term break has seen the continuation of the public examinations and we are immensely proud of how our students have conducted themselves throughout this period. For the wider school, having the examinations take place for the first time in three years is a somewhat welcome and re-assuring step back to ‘normal’ school life, including staying quiet close to examination venues in order to give those taking the examinations the…

This week With public examinations taking place in school for the first time since 2019, we are really proud of how our examinations year groups have conducted themselves so far. They now need to get the right balance between further revision and rest over the half term break. Thank you to the rest of our students for their cooperation in remaining quiet near our examination venues. This week’s assemblies have been based around the theme of life being a journey…
