Study Support during the Easter holiday

Some Year 11 students will receive a personal invitation which indicates attendance would have a real impact on their final grades making the difference in some cases of one whole grade.

Do you have old board games?

Do you have a board game you have finished with? Would you like to donate them to the library? Now the weather has turned colder students are coming to the library to play with board games at breaktimes. Some of the library games are a little worse for wear and we would appreciate any donations. Thank you, Mrs Marshall and Mrs Onions in the library.

Foodbank Donations

Thank you so much for your generous donations. We have now finished collecting. The Foodbank greatly appreciated the donations which will help many people who are experiencing financial difficulty this winter.

Lloyds Bank Community Fund for Daniel's Pond

Charity Recycling Bank

From mid-July, the school is hosting a charity clothes bank on its front car park.  Look out for the ‘pink metal box’! The charity is ASPIRE which is an Oxford based charity whic supports people who are coming out of short term prison sentences and are without work.  The charity offers paid employment for them and the chance of a fresh start. The school also receives a ‘pay-back’ percentage per tonne of the stuff deposited. As a school which has always said to its pupils, “we can all make a mistake; learn from it and move on”, this seems to be an appropriate charity to support. We hope you agree and will support ASPIRE (and the school) in this initiative.
