As we near the end of the summer term I would like to thank you all for the support that you have shown since my arrival in September 2016. A lot has been achieved this year which will help us continue to go from strength to strength. Thank you for helping us to ensure that the majority of students attend school, arrive on time, wear correct uniform and try their best.
I had a wonderful evening at our Year 11 prom recently - our young people looked amazing and everyone had a wonderful time. These pupils have worked hard in the run up to their GCSE exams - I am sure that they will get the results they deserve on 24 August. This has been a year of significant change in GCSE qualifications, with these pupils being the first to sit the new reformed GCSEs and be graded under the new 9-1 grading system. To find out more about what this means for your child, please see the document here.
I wish you and your families an enjoyable summer!
Mrs E Fairhurst – Principal
