Swimming Penathlon Challenge


Our team of 8 swimmers had a great, but long, day out at the Olympic Pool, Stratford, London on Tuesday coming a close second to Priory School after a 10 team Swimming Penathlon Challenge with schools coming together from the South East of England. Congratulations to all who took part and represented the school

Industrial Action - Tuesday 5th July 2016

You may be aware from the local and national press in the last few days of a likelihood that the National Union of Teachers are taking industrial action (strike) on Tuesday 5th July 2016 over pay and workloads. Unfortunately, this means that teaching staff employed in the school will take industrial action for the day and will not be available in school to teach / supervise or support the pupils.

Under health and safety guidelines, we have no option but to CLOSE the school on Tuesday 5th July 2016. All pupils will return home on Monday 4th July 2016 and the school will re-open again on Wednesday 6th July.

Please note we are currently experiencing difficulties with incoming emails to school.


We are working on this and hope to resolve as soon as possible.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Key Stage 4 - Moving On Evening

When your child leaves school:

-                   How will your child keep healthy and active?

-                   How will they continue with the interests they enjoyed at school?

-                   How will they make and keep friends?

-                   How will they stay safe as they become more independent?

-                   How will they manage adult relationships?

-                   Who will I be able to turn to for help and advice?

Our Moving On evening is this WEDNESDAY, 29th June, from 6-8pm in the KS4 area. Representatives from health, local sports clubs and youth organisation, community and support groups will be available to discuss with you the ways they can help your child move successfully into a fulfilling adult life. KS4 staff will also be available, including Louise Holmes, our Transition Worker.

This is an informal event where you can drop in at any time during the session. Although aimed at parents and carers, you are welcome to bring your child with you.

We look forward to seeing you,

Alison Alder  KS4 Lead
