We held our annual Open Evening on Tuesday 23 September 2014.

Open Evening - Science Demonstration

Once again it was extremely well attended and visitors to the school had the opportunity to sample a wide range of activities in each of the subject areas.

There were also many displays and events representing the rich and varied extra-curricular activities, including Nowt2Do?, that are such a key part of life at the school.

One area of particular interest was the Photo Booth run by students in our Art Department and a selection of the images from the evening can be viewed on our Flickr page at or you can also view them on our own gallery page.

We would like to thank all those who attended and we hope that the evening was beneficial, especially for prospective pupils and their parents.
