Principal's Update

Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to offer you a very warm welcome at the start of this new academic year.

I have enjoyed meeting the new Year 7 students and welcoming back all of our students to the start of a busy term. The enthusiasm and positivity from the students, as they have returned to school, has been evident during my classroom visits this week and bodes well for a successful and enjoyable year ahead.

Thank you to all parents and carers who have ensured that students look fantastic in their new school uniforms.

Recently, in assemblies, I have spoken to all year groups about the importance of maximising their time at school and taking advantage of every opportunity and support that is available to them. This will ensure that students achieve the best grades they can throughout Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. Please discuss with your son/daughter their future aspirations and re-iterate the importance of trying their best. With a positive attitude towards school and homework, they will succeed. I invite you to contact me if you have any suggestions on how we can work together to improve students’ learning and progress.

What motivates me is when I see our students succeed and I have had a lovely email from a former student who has recently graduated from university with a BA (Hons) degree. As you can see from the photograph, Kerry’s family is equally proud of her achievements.

I hope that you have had the opportunity to look at our new website and, as we move towards a paperless system in the future, it is essential that your contact details, including your email addresses, are kept up to date. Please inform Student Services of any changes.

I look forward to continuing to work with you throughout the coming year.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Bevan
