1/04/2021Before we sign off for the Easter break we wanted to share some news that we feel epitomises our school motto; 'Proud to Belong, Proud to Achieve'.
As some of you may know, Tilly P in Year 11 is a very talented young rugby player, something that she trains and works hard at, and this week she has received a conditional offer at Henley College to study either Sport & Exercise Science or Sport, Fitness & Personal Training. Henley is renowned for having produced many incredible international rugby players over the years, and Tilly has also been put forward to train on the Girls Elite Rugby programme, a course coached by two former England players, Kat Merchant and Kim Oliver. This is an amazing achievement for Tilly, which could see her progress on to playing rugby for England U18s, U20s and beyond.
We couldn't be prouder of you, Tilly! Lots of hard work truly paying off, well done!

An enormous thank you to everyone that donated to our Proud to Belong Easter Project, your generosity and support is much appreciated. A special thank you to Aidan in Year 7 who has very kindly donated a wonderful selection of homemade cupcakes and Easter goodies.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter and a restful break.
31/03/2021The third edition of our interactive science newsletter, Bright Sparks, is now live! 🧑🔬💥👩🔬
There is lots to read and find out more about....could there be water on Mars? How do butterflies make a quick escape? Mr Cook even touches on the pandemic. It also includes a link to some great "at home" science experiments that you could enjoy over the Easter break! So follow the link and channel your inner scientist....
30/03/2021As part of our welcome back to school programme we have been "collapsing" the timetable for an afternoon for each year group. This has been a welcome opportunity, especially for our younger years, to reform the friendship bonds, relax together and have some fun. Students were offered the chance to take part in a football tournament, a zumba class, an afternoon of mindful arts and crafts, a world record attempt and a stop motion animation club.
The students all had an amazing time but our wow moment has got to be this very creative stop motion animation created by three Year 8 students; Harrison, Ned and Thomas. Well done, boys, this is awesome!
26/03/2021Wow! What a fantastic morning the Easter Bunny has had collecting up your wonderful donations to our 'Proud to Belong' Project. Thank you to everyone that has donated, your generosity as always has been outstanding! We will have a final collection on Monday and then the Easter Bunny will be out delivering.
25/03/2021Don't forget the Easter Bunny will be on the school drive tomorrow collecting donations for our Easter 'Proud to Belong' Project.
All contributions will be very gratefully received and we have decided, as we didn't give you much notice, that we will also accept donations on Monday next week too.
Thank you in advance for your support.

Empowering young people to look after their mental and physical wellbeing.

18/03/2021Don't forget we are wearing red for Comic Relief tomorrow! Mufti including something red and a £1.50 donation towards this worthy charity. Looking forward to Red Nose Day!
18/03/2021We would like to thank you all again for your incredible support with our Proud to Belong Project which launched over the Christmas period. As the project was such a huge success, we would like to continue to support our school and local community over the Easter holidays. On Friday 26th March we will be asking for Easter donations (Easter eggs, cakes, chocolate and so on). We appreciate that during a national lockdown, many of you will not be going to the shops but anything that you can donate next week would be gratefully received. Our Easter bunnies will be out on the school driveway on 26th with donation boxes.
With your support we can ensure that everyone within our community has an ‘Eggsellent’ Easter! 🐰
