Year 13 Leavers' Assembly
On Wednesday afternoon we held our Year 13 Leavers' Assembly. Mr Carter, Miss O'Brien and tutors handed out a variety of awards, with Mr Davenport giving a speech and wishing them well for the future.
The event was rounded off with teachers and Year 12 students lining up to give the Year 13 leavers a round of applause as they left the school site.
We would like to wish them the best of luck as they move on to their next destinations, as well as remind them that we are still on hand should they need any support or guidance.
Year 11 Leavers' Assembly
Today we said goodbye to our Year 11 students with our Leavers' Assembly. Mr Brown discussed how the world has changed over the past five years, and how they too have grown and overcome challenges along the way.
There was time for shirt-signing, hugs and photos outside on the MUGA before the students left the school site just before lunchtime.

Catering provision for Term 6
The table below sets out the day of the week each year group will offered a hot food option.
For those families who have been ordering grab bags, this provision will continue. Please continue to order the grab bag for your child in the normal way using this link: Term 6 Lunch Order Form. Your child will collect their food in the normal way from within their pod. Sandwiches will also be offered alongside the hot food options but will not be made to order on that day. Therefore, there will be no conflict with your order, using this form, and what your child collects on the specified hot food day.
Year 12 will have the option to order food in advance and it will be delivered to the Sixth Form Centre. More information for this year group will be shared with directly with the students.
Please ensure your child’s Wisepay account has sufficient funds on it.
