School Reminders

  • Summer Uniform

    As you are aware, we have introduced our summer uniform this week. We would like to remind you that girls will be allowed to wear plain black knee length socks (no bows) instead of tights. They will, of course, be able to continue to wear tights if they prefer, and trousers are still available as an option (as they have always been). We will return to our normal uniform rules in September. Any girls who roll up their skirts to shorten the length will be told to return to wearing tights or trousers. Your support with this is greatly appreciated.

  • School Access

    Due to the current building work, we ask parents not to drive down Printshop Lane with the only exception being those who need to drop off or pick up disabled students or those with medical needs.

  • Sherbet Straws

    Sherbet straws are now banned from school owing to concerns about sugar intake, distractions and litter.

  • Staff Training Day

    Friday 1st July will be a staff training day therefore school will be closed for all students on that day.

  • General Reminder

    We would like to remind all parents and carers of our mobile phone policy. Mobile phones must remain switched off during school hours. This includes break and lunchtimes. Mobile phones are not allowed to be seen or heard on site – this is defined as ‘inside the school gates’. Any student seen using their mobile phone during school hours will have their phone confiscated. Phones must not be seen or heard. Your support is key and appreciated.

Homework and Self-directed study

Teachers will set homework through ‘Satchel One’. Students will be able to check their homework and deadlines by going into ‘Satchel One’. Parents will receive notification when homework is set via the ‘Satchel One’ app.

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

Another of our key character areas that we aim to develop is for our students to have Respect. If our students Respect others, they will form good relationships with each other and staff; this will help us to develop a cohesive and tolerant school community. We also want all students to feel that this is their school and they belong here

Message from the Headteacher

This week Mr Whalley, Mr Fallows and I had the pleasure of interviewing 21 students in Year 10 for the position of Head Boy and Head Girl. All the students we spoke to were an absolute delight and a credit to themselves and their families. We have now appointed our student leadership team and we look forward to working with them in the year ahead. It is always an exciting time of year as we prepare the current Year 10 for their senior year in school. Well done to all involved! 

Mr Davies.
