Parents' Poll

Should the UK leave Europe?

Tis better to have loved and lost, then to have never loved at all.

08 February 2016

This is a time of choices. Year 9 students begin to choose the option subjects they will study at GCSE. Year 11 students receive their mock examination results and begin their 1:1 Sixth Form interviews. Thanks also to more than 100 external applicants who have asked to join our Sixth Form in September. We are delighted by and grateful for your interest in our work and values.

We have an exciting year ahead as we prepare for September 2016 when our new Year 7, 8 and 9 students will join us - the culmination of years of planning to become a true full 11-18 school. We can't wait. There will be some new buildings, and lots of curriculum development, plus plenty of close work with our middle and primary school partners.

As well as our central focus on teaching students of all ages and abilities, we continue to give a strong commitment to a rich range of enrichment activities. Read more about them in the latest edition of Celebrate! here.

For parents of children in primary school, we are running three of our popular open mornings on 10 February, 2 March and 16 March. Book a place here, and come and see our school at work:
