Science Revision Guides

Science revision guides and workbooks are now available at cost price on Parentpay. These would be especially useful this year as they give an excellent, comprehensive coverage of everything students need to know.

Please look out for the letters which will be coming out soon, however the letter is just for information. If you want to get on with it as soon as possible we will make sure that every student gets the right ones for the course they are on.

As always, we are happy to exchange any which are still in good condition if students change group, tier or course as there are plenty of things we can do with slightly used copies.

Before you do that, it is worth checking if students in Years 8,10 and 11 have already got one somewhere!

If you require further information, please email me directly.

AFTER SCHOOL EXTRA-CURRICULAR

Following the new guidance for schools during this month long lockdown there will be no after school clubs e.g. sports, reading group etc during lockdown. As a result late buses will not run during lockdown.Year 11 and 13 subject booster sessions and detentions continue as normal. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Year 9 Food Preparation and Nutrition

9E had their first practical lesson back in the food room this morning.  To enable this to happen, all the ingredients are prepared for them and all equipment is laid out, to prevent unnecessary contact with door handles/ drawers etc.  The students worked well to make Shortcrust pastry and roll it out to make Jam Tarts.  After washing up their equipment, all of it is checked, sanitised and put away, ready for the next group.  Year 9 were able to take their Jam Tarts away with them for a break time snack. 

Well done 9E.

Character & Culture lessons

As part of Character & Culture lessons, all Year 9 and 10 students have been participating in a virtual Child Criminal Exploitation workshop with Loudmouth Education. Students have learned what Child Criminal Exploitation is, warning signs that a young person is being exploited, and where to go for support if they think they, or someone they know, are being exploited.
