Welcome

 

from Damien Kearns, Principal

It is my pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to you and I hope that you will find all the necessary information that you require about our school and our unique approach to education. The High School opened in September 2012 and we have now reached the stage in our development where we have 550 pupils in years 7-11. Our sixth form largely comprises our own students, though we do also benefit from students joining our sixth form from other schools. In total, therefore, we have approximately 660 pupils that benefit from our virtues-led approach to education that nurtures both the minds and hearts of our pupils.

  • Study Vs Revision One of the key messages for students to understand when talking about study skills is the difference between study and revision. For many students, particularly at GCSE and A level they see them as the same thing and something that is done simply before a test or assessment. To this end, please find below a practical guide, distinguishing between the two, along with effective routines and techniques for transforming subject knowledge into long term memory, ready for retrieval in subsequent lessons and examinations. Whilst certainly offering a timely reminder for our A level learners, and GCSE students alike, it offers a concise overview for parents and guardians wanting to know what effective study and revision should look like, as we head towards the next batch of mock examinations in February.

  • Fantastic news following today's KS3 county lines charity futsal tournament. Our year 9 boys team came out as CHAMPIONS winning a lovely trophy and plaque. They won the final match 3-1 and have been invited back next year to defend their title. The year 8 boys team also did well in their league competition winning half of their matches and the year 9 girls did exceptionally well too despite playing against mainly boys teams winning a couple of their league matches.

  • Congratulations to students through to the next round of the MFL spelling bee
