Yesterday was the first full day rehearsal for this years musical “Singing in the Rain”.

The students were practising their lines, acting, dance routines and musical numbers in what looks like it will be another spectacular show.

We can’t wait for you all to see the final product during show week 5th – 9th February.

Wellbeing Ambassadors – Introduction

Our new Wellbeing Ambassadors are now actively supporting our students throughout the academy.

The team is made up of Y13 students who have completed and passed specific training which allows them to work across the whole school.

They are trained to offer advice and practical strategies which builds resilience and confidence for students.

They are a valuable asset to our already proactive wellbeing approach in school.

Students can identify them by their yellow lanyards and they are able to approach them if they have any issues, they are happy to help.

Children In Need 2023 – Bake Sale

Sixth-Form students organised a Bake Sale for Children in Need 2023.

Once again there was an amazing selection of cakes on sale and not a crumb left by the end of morning break.

Thank you to all staff and students who baked or donated cakes for this event.

A special mention for Luke, one of our Year 7 roving Ambassadors for his amazing Pudsey Bear cake – it was delicious.

A total of £278.19 has been raised for Children in Need from the bake sale fundraiser!


Community Ambassadors – History Display Nov23

Three Year 7 Community Ambassadors, Josh, Luke and Archer have been working incredibly hard on their ‘In History This Month’ display.

This month they have written about Remembrance and included some of year 8’s poppies which have what Remembrance mean to them written inside them.

They even included a QR code to the Royal British Legion’s website!

We’re all looking forward to see what they come up with next month!

World Mental Health Day – Young Minds Yellow Campaign

Yesterday was World Mental Health Day and the 6th Form supported this by taking part in Young Minds Hello Yellow campaign. Photos of the day can be found at the bottom of this page.
They dressed in yellow and sold ribbons to raise awareness. By wearing yellow and donating to support the cause, they have helped show young people that they matter and that they deserve the support they need, when they need it, no matter what.
They managed to raise £85! Well done to all of those who took part.

Macmillan Bake Sale Photos – 29/09/2023

huge thank you to all of you who baked, donated or bought cakes today. There was an amazing spread. Below is a report from one of our community ambassadors describing today’s bake sale.

Today, Sixth Form ran the annual Macmillan Cancer Support Bake sale and it was a great success! We`ve had support in the form of baking and selling from both staff and Sixth form. We sold everything from cookies to cakes, rocky road to Bakewell tarts and all of them went down a treat with students and staff. One year 9 student who ran a Fairtrade stall earlier this week at parents’ evening, took home the leftover bananas to make some beautiful banana and chocolate chip cupcakes which were delightful!

A big thank you to all who baked, sold or bought cakes, we were able to raise £346.43 and this will be gratefully received by Macmillan Cancer Support. We hope you will all continue to support us with future bake sales and other fundraising events we have on the horizon.
