Year 9 Parents’ Evening Wednesday 26 April

Year 9 Parents’ Evening will take place on Wednesday 26 April 2017 from 1630-1930. Appointment slots are limited so we recommend that you go online asap to ensure that you are able to book appointments with your child’s subject teachers.

The school uses an intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. The system is now open for bookings. Please print and bring the emailed appointment sheet with you on the night. Should you wish to make any changes please contact the school office.

Please visit to book your appointments or click on the link on the school’s website home page. Login with the following information: 

Student’s First Name:               

Student’s Surname:                  

Date of Birth – Please ensure you input the date of birth as dd/mm/yyyy as the system will not recognise the 2 digit year format. 

If you do not have access to the internet, please contact Mrs Woodgate on 01344 390837 who will be happy to add appointments on your behalf.

Many thanks

Dining Hall menu for this term

This is the menu for this term in the Dining Hall. Please remember that we run a cashless system and that accounts can be topped up online as well as by using the machine in the Dining Hall (much easier than finding cash!) You are also able to see what your child has purchased by logging on to your parent pay account. If you need help in setting up your account, please email

Please note that the much loved ‘Chip Friday’ has become ‘Chip Monday’ for this term!

Winners of the events were:


Best designs:

7D2 8D6 9D1 11D1

Safest eggs:

House points will be added to current totals.

TES GCSE Revision Support ‘hub’

The TES (Times Educational Supplement) have produced an online ‘hub’ of resources to help teachers and parents to support their children with revision for the forthcoming GCSE exams. Some of the resources are free to access, other require payment. The resources are organised by subject and by exam board, so provide helpful targeted support.

Many thanks for your ongoing support with your child’s preparation for their forthcoming exams.

Y7 reviews make front page!

imageWe have been promoted to the front page of the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway awards website!

Our year 7 students recently reviewed a number of the shortlisted books and our school has obviously stood out as having some worthy contributions, as now we are being promoted as an example school!

We are really proud of our young writers, particularly those who have continued to write up reviews in their spare time! Great effort year 7!

Floorball event cancelled

Unfortunately, due to a lack of uptake, the Y7 Family Floorball event has had to be cancelled. We would appreciate feedback from parents and carers as to why this event was not seen as popular. If you could take a few minutes to let us know your thoughts, we would really appreciate it:

We would love to host more parent and student activities after school in the future, so would like to hear from you!
