We have a range of extra-curricular sport activities taking place over the summer term. Please click here to see the new PE timetable.
KS3 students are entering their ‘end of year exam period’. Students will be sitting exams in their core subjects (English, maths and science) in formal exam conditions. They have all received an individual timetable for these tests.
Tests will also be taken for the following subjects: history, geography, RS and languages, in the classroom during normal timetabled lessons. Students will be having assessments at the end of their current unit (so nearer the end of the summer term) in the practical and performance subjects.
Students are being issued with a blank timetable to write in when they are having their class based tests, this is because different groups will be sitting these subject tests at different times.
These exams are really nothing to be worried about. They give the students good experience and practice of taking tests and get them into the habit and routine, so when they sit more formal exams they are able to take them in their stride. They also provide really useful assessment information for teachers.
Students have been set revision tasks centrally for the core subjects: these can be found on Show My Homework. Other subjects will continue to set revision tasks.
The Gardening Club is run by Student Services as one of the interventions used to support students in KS3. The allotment requires funds to cover the annual costs of materials and maintenance, to this end we try to raise as much as we can through the sale of bedding plants and hanging baskets. If you usually buy plants or hanging baskets for your garden, please click HERE and give our order form the once over, there are some great deals to be had!!
We are offering two different Sports Plus Tennis sessions which will restart on the first week back after Easter Tuesday 25th April and Wednesday 26th April.

Thank you very much to all those of you who attended the Parents’ Forum even earlier this week. It was a very pleasant evening and extremely useful for us to have the chance to listen to your feedback on what is going well and what we can do to improve things. We are in the process of preparing some notes from the evening and will make these available to all parents and carers within the next few days. A copy of the presentation can be found by clicking here.
