We’re Back! Autumn 2011

Good Morning all!

It's Wednesday morning and we are into day three of the new term and the new year. I would like to welcome parents, pupils and teachers back to the school after the summer break, and offer a special welcome to parents, pupils and teachers who are joining the school for the first time this year. we look forward to a productive and enjoyable year.

There is an Induction Morning for parents and pupils new to the Secondary School on Saturday Morning 10th September at 10.30am. We will be sharing information to help pupils to settle into their new environment and also having a time for a Q & A session. Brunch will be served by the Parent Teacher Committee. All year 7 parents and pupils are invited, as well as parents and pupils who are new in other secondary school classes. This is also a great opportunity for parents new to the school to meet one another and the staff. Please contact the school office to let us know if you are able to be there.

The Primary School will have their Induction Evening on Wednesday 14th September from 7 to 8.30 pm. All primary parents will have an opportunity to meet their children's teachers and there will be an info session for parents new to the school. Refreshments will be served by the PTC. Once again, if you are new to the school, this is a great opportunity to meet parents and teachers.

We are proud of the GCSE results which were announced during the summer break.

93% of our candidates achieved a minimum of 5 A* to C grades including English and Maths
(this is the figure that will be published in League Tables.)
100% of our candidates achieved a minimum of 5 A* to C grades (any subject)
30% of grades were passed at A or A*
95% 0f grades were C or above and just 7 D grades out of 148 grade entries.
No grades lower than a D.

These are outstanding results for a non-selective school.

Well done to all of our pupils, and to all of the teachers who have worked with them throughout their time with us!
