A BIG THANK YOU to the BRILLIANT Y9 students who volunteered in the Library as part of their DofE Award. They have processed 100s of books and carried out admin tasks at home while we were in lockdown. The new library would be nowhere near it is today without their help.

Great to see Y7 taking every possible opportunity to revise for the end of year exams. Fantastic effort, keep it up!


Year 9 spent their Deep Learning Day exploring Shakespeare. Starting with a performance and workshop they went on to create their own interpretations of the witches, engage with the more dramatic elements of the play and re-write their own, modern version.


We have had Breis the hip hop artist, writer and entrepreneur visit our school today leading rap and spoken word workshops to our Year 8 students. We had some brilliant performances at the end and we are looking forward to more fun tomorrow.

Library lessons this week involve discussing the Carnegie Medal shortlisted titles, using the cover, blurb and first page as the starting point. Today's class favoured "The Girl Who Speaks Bear", but there's been a wide range of winners across the different classes.


7 Gibson presented an excellent assembly on Caring for the Environment where they shared some facts and some top tips on how we can do better to care for the environment in our own lives.

House Reading Challenge update: Butler took over the lead from Nelson but only just. It is incredibly close at the top of the league and much can change before the next results are announced after the half-term break.


A huge thank you to Jack and Aaliyah from for their inspiring presentation about life at the University of Oxford. Our Philosophers loved hearing from you and can’t wait to apply!

We have had a fantastic week.  We had over 1500 entries into the different competitions for Virtual Sports Day and students fully engaged with the Virtual Careers Day completing their own personal plan for a career of choice.  It will be fascinating to see how personal plans change over time.  We welcomed all of our new staff on Monday for an induction day and met all of our new Year 7s virtually; we are especially pleased to be welcoming 17 siblings into Year 7.  Teachers have been busily marking significant pieces of work and writing reports.  We are very impressed with the standard of work we have received and I would like to thank you for encouraging your children during this challenging time.

We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back for their review meeting next week.  You should have received a letter from me, via email , outlining when your child needs to attend.  If you haven’t received the letter, please contact Mrs Kirby. If you have any further questions, please contact Miss Pocock (Year 7)  or Mr James (Year 8).

Yesterday, we received the guidance for return to school in September.  The first thing to say is that I am absolutely delighted the government has said all students can come back. We have learnt a lot in lockdown about how to deliver virtual education, and families and staff have been outstanding, but children need the routine of normal school life and they also need to see their friends and teachers.  It is vital that we get students back to school in September, and the government has made attendance compulsory unless there is a statutory reason for children to be absent.  We will be running a full school day with breakfast clubs, homework clubs and extracurricular activities.  I will write to you in full next week with how our different bubbles will work and the safety measures we will have in place.  Until then, I hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.
