visualiser2Thank you to the Governing Body for funding 'Visualisers' for every classroom in the school. These allow pupils' work etc to be easily projected onto the interactive white boards. These are valuable teaching tools and will help us continue in our journey of school improvement. The school will also shortly be taking delivery of a set of laptops also funded by the governors. The governors receive funds from parents who contribute a small monthly amount by direct debit. 100% of money received goes directly to school improvement. If you would like to contribute please download the attached form and return to your bank. Standing Order Form.pdf

These results are testament to the hard work put in by pupils and teachers. 88% of pupils achieved five GCSEs A*-C and 100% achieved at least five GCSEs A*-G. The school is immensely proud of this year group and we wish them every success when they continue on to the sixth form.
