Homework and Self-directed study

This week, we’d like to share another of our homework strands: ‘Spell it’. This might include learning key vocabulary for a subject or understanding the etymology of words. Please remind your child to look through their exercise books to check if they have any spelling corrections to address.

Homework Club

Please remind your child that homework club is available to all students Monday-Thursday where they can complete work in a quiet environment with staff on hand to support them.

Personal Development

As part of our work on developing character, assemblies over the next few weeks will be focusing on Motivation exploring the importance of being motivated in order to achieve and be successful.

Message from the Headteacher

Thank you to all Year 8 parents and carers who attended Parents’ Evening on Thursday 10th March. This was our first face-to-face Parents’ Evening since January 2020 and it was a pleasure to welcome so many of you back into the building and for things to start to start to feel ‘normal’ again! We look forward to welcoming parents and carers of Year 10 students to their Parents’ Evening on Thursday 31st March.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Davies.
