Best wishes to the staff leaving us this year.

Dear parents, guardians and pupils,

As the end of the academic year approaches I wish to thank you all for your continuous support for the school. This academic year has witnessed the best ever attendance rate (94.7%), best ever Key Stage 3 results and when this is added to the record breaking school results last summer and the expectation for further success in 2015, this is an exciting time in the history of the school.

With reference to the end of term, the school will close at 1.00 on 17/07/2015 and reports will be provided to all pupils. The school will re-open to staff on Tuesday, September 1st and to all pupils on Wednesday, September 2nd 2015.
