Academic Mentoring afternoon – Tuesday 19th November

On Tuesday 19th November we will be holding an Academic Mentoring afternoon.

Time will be set aside during the afternoon for students to meet with their tutor/academic mentor to discuss how the term has gone so far and what they can do to work towards their goals for the rest of the year.

Odd Sock Day – Friday 15th November

This week is National Anti-Bullying week and the theme is ‘Change Starts With Us’.

“By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with work together.” (Anti Bullying Alliance)

Students and Staff are showing support for this by wearing odd socks to school on Friday 15th November.  The idea is to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

Welcome to our new Pastoral Lead!

We warmly welcome Tina Callow to the staff team.  Tina has taken up the post of ‘Pastoral Lead Year 11’.

We look forward to working with her.
