Headteacher's Blog

You should have now received our new parent newsletter via email, in which I hope you will find lots of useful information about what is going on here in school. It has also been uploaded to our school website. I welcome your feedback and suggestions about what we can add to this newsletter as we go forward. Last half term was very successful, with our new Year 7’s and 12’s settling in really quickly, a very positive mood across the school following the excellent results in the summer, and a massive attendance at our Open  Evening to name just a few highlights. Academy status is just around the corner (its in the hands of the legal people as they sort out some traditional land issues) and the new build process has really ramped up.

With all this going on I can assure you we haven’t taken our eye off the ball about what goes on in the classroom. We continue to push forward with our development of common sense teaching and learning practices that set high expectations and provides feedback that secures great progress.

Last half term we put out a call for any parents who would like to form part of a new parent feedback group. If you would be willing to contribute, please just get in touch through the main office.

As Halloween approaches our younger students are busy sculpting pumpkins that will be given to our primary partner schools, and this week we will see our first school production in a number of years – Olivia. I do hope you will be able to support our stars of the stage as they perform on Thursday and Friday evening.

In partnership
