Author Catherine Bruton's virtual visit went down a storm with our students who asked lots of excellent questions. Catherine was wonderful and so engaging. We could not have had a better start to our World Book Day. Happy WBD!


Proud that so many of our Year 9 students are getting their tests - ready for the return to school next week!


Don’t throw the box away! Students in Year 9 were challenged with making a desk tidy/holder made out of corrugated cardboard. Pop art was the given theme to be inspired from. We will always encourage students to follow the 6 R’s (Recycle, Reuse, Reduce, Repair, Rethink, Refuse).

Just a reminder we are closed tomorrow (Friday 12th February) for INSET day and will reopen after half term on Monday 22nd February. Have a relaxing half term.


Following on from the leftover challenge last week; students were also encouraged to design a menu which teaches others how to make the most out of leftover food found in the fridge, cupboard or freezer.


Although the snow has been falling this week, our pupils’ creativity and enthusiasm certainly has not! Congratulations to Sara, Chase and Peter who made the most of their off-screen challenge time in Art and captured these brilliant photographs.
