Contrary to the current icy weather, we would like to wish you a happy new year and a warm welcome back. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break! 

Pupil Support, The Pupil Support Class & The Oasis

WE have broadened the support that we are offering pupils into a clearer model  so that we can effectively target and address their needs. There is now a greater emphasis on nurture and preventative interventions. We have employed an additional member of staff to increase the team's capacity. The pupil support team continue to help pupils when they are struggling with their behaviour (whether that is due to emotional deregulation, issues with peers, work set etc). If you would like more details on the updated model please see the attached presentation:

If we are to believe the sensationalist newspaper headlines, then we are to expect heavy snow next week. In the unlikely event that this does occur, please be aware that you will be informed via text if School is closed (or closing early if it's during the day). There will also be a message posted on the front page of our website.

Hub Parents/Carers Group

I am delighted that we will be hosting our first ever Hub parent /carers group meeting next week! This is an opportunity for Hub parents/carers to voice successes, air concerns, suggest changes to the current provision and request support. We will have the kettle on and look forward to seeing you there!


I am immensely proud of some of our sixth form students who have been working hard to improve on their previous English qualifications and results. In November, out of those who sat the level 1 Functional Skills exams nearly all of them passed. Also, a special mention must be given to James Eyre who achieved a level in his GCSE English Language exam. Well done!

And Finally...

I was proudly showing some visitors around our school yesterday when I  came across Tia Chan in Year 11 creating this masterpiece on the computer in her ICT lesson. The class were developing the use of different brush styles and the colour wheel. They were encouraged to find a character that they would like to draw and use the primary colours / brush style needed to recreate the character.  The primary aim  of the activity was to develop pupils' fine motor skills. 

Have a great weekend!
