Year 8 and Options 

In the last four years the government has introduced reformed GCSE and Vocational Qualifications that all students must sit in secondary schools. These qualifications have more content to study and include more difficult concepts to grasp, they have been made significantly tougher.

To maximise their success they will need the time to enjoy learning whilst being able to meet the new challenges of the qualifications. Consequently we have decided to allow them to start studying their GCSEs at the beginning of Year 9 rather than Year 10 which means they will make their options choices this year.

Please read this letter for more detailed information and the supporting events we will be holding.

Year 8 Options Letter - sent home 16th January 2018


Key Stage 3 (Year 7, 8 and 9) - Technology Projects for this year require resources and material and we have found it increasingly difficult to fund the entirety of them ourselves. We are therefore asking, for a small contribution for each project of £2.00 each = £8.00 in total.

Letters with further information about the projects for each Year group have been sent home with students (11th December), or you can read it here:

Technology Project Contribution Letter - December 2017

General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation is new legislation that all people and organisations must comply with by 25th May 2018. This replaces the 1998 Data protection Act. Even with Britain leaving the E.U. the government have adopted this legislation.

For schools this applies to ensuring all our stakeholders are aware of what data we hold on them, why we hold it and how long for. To ensure our stakeholders are aware of this we have published on the school website our privacy notices which inform students and parents of how we will use their data.  

Anyone is allowed access to the data that we hold on them as long as it is not against the public interest. As a school we aim to comply with the all the guidelines from the data regulator the Information Commissioners office.

In the Event of a School Closure

Just in case...... here is the School Closure Process and letter for parents/carers.

This letter lets you know what will happen if we are remaining open despite adverse weather conditions, if we have to close for the day, and if we have to close during the day.

If school has to close during the day, we have to make sure that all our students leave the school safely and go to a safe place. So we are now seeking information and permission for childs arrangements in the event of us closing during the day.

Please read this letter carefully, complete and return the reply slip and keep a copy of it at home, especially if you provide us with a password.
