Dear parents/carers and students I hope you are all well. This week I intend to focus mainly on the detail of the imminent return of our year 10 and 12 students rather than the usual update. However, I wanted to begin by thanking a former student, Phil Stewart, who I taught maths to in the early 1990s, who very kindly donated a brand new laptop and software to one of our year 10 students. Phil spent 20 years as a RAF fast jet pilot and now works for Jet2.com out of Newcastle so may well fly you, once allowed, to a nice holiday destination! Return of year 10 and year 12 students: Having formu...

Dear students, parents and carers, I hope you all continue to be well and are enjoying the lovely weather. In terms of an update for this week: We have had between 5 and 10 students in school. Clearly, 10 students with a teacher and support assistant presents a challenge for social distancing in a single classroom, so we have had to open up one of the double rooms in the 1936 building. The students attending have received a variety of experiences this week with lessons in maths, food technology (cookery when I was at school!), PE, science, ICT, art, geography and MFL Departments continue to issue a r...
