Dear Parents and Carers
As we approach the half term break, I write to inform parents and carers how pleased we are with the work of your children over the half term.
This has been an especially busy half term of tests and examinations. Years 7, 8 and 9 have undertaken the national reading and numeracy tests and class tests and examinations. They have all approached these very seriously and have put in their best efforts. Well done to all.

You are invited to attend Year 7 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 9th June from 3.30pm to 6.30pm in the dining room.
The evening will give you the opportunity to discuss both academic and social progress of your son/daughter with individual teachers. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to raise any concerns that you may have with regards to your child’s progress.
Note: The Year 13 English Literature session has moved to this new date, from the original Monday.
Dear parent / guardian,
We are pleased to be able to release the itinerary for the forthcoming trip to New York, Washington and Philadelphia. We must however stress that some of the timings of the trip may change slightly and we will confirm any changes with you 2 weeks prior to departure.
Dear sixth form learner
As the examinations draw upon us, we would like to give you some information about results day on Thursday 18 August.
Year 13 ONLY can collect their results from school between 8.30 and 10 am.
Please understand that for the early part of the day we have to prioritise Year 13 as they have university places at stake.
As you are aware your son or daughter will be sitting the National Reading tests during the first week in May. To ensure that your child feels prepared and confident to sit the National Test he or she will be spending some time in school leading up to the tests working on specific reading strategies and question types. We feel that it would be highly beneficial for your child to attempt a practice paper at home with your support. In order to help both you and your child we have compiled a guide to completing the test and a practice paper to attempt. As a school we believe that parental support is vital at home and I would like to thank you in advance for this support.
Congratulations to Ricardo Rees who has won a scholarship with Bristol City and will be starting full time with them after his GCSE's.
