Year 11 Exams & Revision

As we enter the final week of the GCSE examinations do not let up on the effort and ensure that you work as hard for your last exam as you did for your first. We look forward to seeing you all again on Celebration Day, 20th June.

BTEC Health & Social Care

The BTEC Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care students completed their portfolios this week. The students have worked extremely hard and their results are excellent with six students achieving three distinction star grades (equivalent to 3A* grades at A level). They are going on to a range of university places including primary school teaching, nursing and psychotherapy and counselling.

Applied Art Exhibition

Tuesday saw the Applied Art Exhibition where the year 13 students had the opportunity to show all of the hard work that they have completed during the course. I am sure you will agree it all looks fantastic. See our Flickr gallery here, or view the two short videos below.

Reading Week

It is our annual reading week starting on the 30th June and to get you all in the spirit of reading we will be running a couple of competitions on our Facebook page. The first one has been launched today and we are looking for your pictures of extreme reading, have you got pictures of you reading in an exotic country, in a strange place or simply something out of the ordinary. Post your pictures on the thread and the one with the most likes wins a £10 voucher. Closing date is midnight on the 16th June.

Please do not do anything that will put you in danger in your attempts to win this prize!
