THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: "When one door of opportunity closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

    (Other subjects not listed will take place in classrooms.  Subject Teacher to confirm in class)


    Please note: The Ghana Project was due in Fri 27th May.

    The England v Wales football match on Thursday June 16th
    by J LEEKE - Wednesday, 15 June 2016, 4:14 PM

    I know that this is a very significant event for many students, for the community and for the nation so I do want to give students the opportunity to watch the match on Thursday. The match starts at 2pm so this would affect only period 5. The match will be shown on several big screens in school.

    Lessons will continue as normal for students who do not want to watch the match.

    If you are a parent of a Year 10 student please note that Year 10 have an important Maths exam which will start at 12.30 and will finish at 2pm, after which they can watch the match.

    If you would like to insist that your son or daughter has a normal lesson and does not watch the match, please fill in this reply slip and return to the Head of House.

    Yours sincerely,

    Mr Goodwin

Apply immediately if you think you will qualify. It is important to apply as this registers your child for the pupil premium; funding available to schools for children who qualify for free school meals via the eligibility criteria.
