Dear Parents and Carers

The new Year 9 parents evening has been rescheduled for next Thursday 8 March.  This day will be a condensed day and the School will finish at 1.30pm.

The deadline for the Year 9 Options Form submission on GroupCall has been extended until 12 March. 

The new PE running leggings are going to be available to purchase from the PTA in the School Hall on Monday 5 March from 7pm - 8pm.  

Pearsons Teaching Award – Deadline 9 March
Take a moment to say thank you to a teacher that you feel is making a difference to students.  We can all remember a teacher that made a difference to our school careers, but did we ever say thank you?  The Pearson Teaching Awards try to resolve this and acknowledge the impact a great teacher can have on students.  It is free and only takes a few minutes via this link http://teachingawards.com/thank-a-teacher/   

The teacher will be notified and a thank you card sent for free on your behalf.  The School will also be notified and can then decide whether to put the member of staff forward to receive an Award. 

For the last few years we have had several staff go on to grain Bronze and Silver Awards at national level following their nominations from students, parents and colleagues.  So please do take a moment to say thank you.
