    • Welcome to our New Year 7 Students

      date posted: Thursday 4 Sep 2014

      We are really looking forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students tomorrow morning. The boys and girls need to arrive at the bottom gate by or before 8.35a.m from where they will be directed towards the Octagon for their first assembly as a year group. They will spend the day with their form tutors. The dining room will be open as normal. We will be introducing the smart card system shortly but in the meantime students not eligible for free school meals should bring sufficient money to pay for food which they wish to buy.

      Students do not require their P.E kits tomorrow.

      To ensure the safety of all the children we would ask all parents and carers dropping their children at school to observe all of the clear markings on the public highway and not to drive their vehicles on to the school site.
