Principal's Weekly Update

Good morning, everyone!

It's wonderful to connect with you again. Last time, we celebrated the success of our Sports Day event. Today, I want to highlight three key areas: opportunities, events, and extra-curricular activities for our students. Additionally, I'll discuss the curriculum for this half-term and how you, as parents, can support our young people at home.

Exciting Opportunities and Events

We recently had a fantastic Sports Day, which showcased the enthusiasm and sportsmanship of our students. A special thanks to all the parents who supported the event. The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the teachers' race, which generated a lot of excitement among the students and spectators alike. The event ran smoothly, thanks to the efforts of both students and staff. It was a proud moment for me as the principal to see everyone enjoying and participating wholeheartedly.

Extracurricular Activities – Cyber Security Club for Girls

This initiative aims to encourage more young women to explore computer science. The club, designed for Key Stage 3 students (Years 7, 8, and 9), meets bi-weekly and engages in various coding and technology activities. Last year, the club visited the Deloitte office in London, providing invaluable insights from senior women in cybersecurity. This year, they had the inspiring experience of visiting Downing Street. We also have a boys' computer science club led by Mr Burton, ensuring there's something for everyone.

Curriculum Focus

For Key Stage 3 students, please review the curriculum on our website and use DPR to track their progress. The goal is for every child to be secure in their key objectives by the end of the year. Teachers are currently assessing these objectives to identify areas where students need additional support.

Our Year 10 students are preparing for their exams, which will help them identify gaps in their knowledge and build confidence. The same applies to Year 12 students as they prepare for their A-levels and BTEC exams. Encourage them to balance preparation with adequate rest and relaxation.

Parental Support

We need your support in reinforcing school policies, such as ensuring mobile phones are switched off and kept in bags during the school day. This policy has significantly reduced distractions and negative impacts associated with social media. Your co-operation in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Looking Ahead

We have many exciting events planned for the rest of this academic year. Our Year 7 and 8 students are participating in the district athletics, rewarding their excellent performance on Sports Day. Next week, we'll share updates from our business department, highlighting our new business mural and its focus on representation.

Stay informed about upcoming events by checking our communication channels regularly. Together, we can ensure the success of our young people.


Have a fantastic weekend, and we look forward to seeing you next week!
