Dear All

Year 11 drama pupils made a strong start to their ‘real’ exams this week. It was good to see the pupils determined to succeed in their drama exam and we wish them every success in their forthcoming mocks starting on Monday. It is essential that your son/daughter makes the most of this mock process and puts every effort into gaining the best grades. The only way to succeed is to work hard and revise the work. Support material can be found on Go4 Schools and exam board websites.


You may be aware that there is a national shortage of Maths and Science teachers. This year the SWAN Teaching School Alliance provided a paid four week summer internship programme for undergraduate maths and science students interested in a career in teaching. The aim of the internship programme was to recruit more people into teaching maths and physics. They intend to run the internship programme again in June - July 2020 and would like to know if you would be interested? Please continue to read on in this bulletin for further information.

Next week we will be welcoming many elderly people from the local community to our academy to enjoy a Christmas lunch and hopefully get in to the Christmas spirit with a good sing-a-long. Thank you to everyone who have been making food donations for the Christmas hampers too, very kind of you to be thinking of others at this time of year.

Enjoy the weekend

Jane Burton, Principal
