The new academic year has begun well and is now in full swing. We celebrated another year of good examination results and wish our former year 11’s well as they embark on their college courses or apprenticeships.

We have welcomed several new staff to the team:-

They all seem to be settling in well alongside our new Year 7’s. This year we have welcomed 163 students into Year 7 coming from a range of primary schools.
