  • Widening Participation Week and Evening 2020

    Raising the aspirations of all students

    During the week commencing 20th January, students from Years 7-10 took part in the school’s annual Widening Participation Week. Students had access to over 60 sessions.

    Sixth Form News Bulletin

    It’s the end of January already and what a month it has been! It seems to have gone really quickly and we are yet again close to mock exams for Year 13.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year! 2020 has started at a frantic pace in Sixth Form and I am sure that the festive break seems quite some time ago! Although it has been very busy it has also been an exciting time for many of our students.

    For Year 13 students the UCAS process closed on the 15th January. All our students wishing to attend University have completed the process and conditional offers have already been made to many of them. For some students this will also involve an interview at University which is why we had the University of Nottingham deliver PSCHE this week to talk and practice their inte...
