Parents & Carers Meetings

On the 2nd Monday of every half term parents and carers are invited to attend a session covering a range of topics.
Meetings usually start at 7pm with refreshments provided.


The widely recognised Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme offers young people the chance to develop new skills, achieve goals and push personal boundaries by engaging on a personally tailored programme. The Bronze award is currently available for some of our Key Stage 4 pupils, with plans to open it up to a wider group in the near future.

Students are able to complete all components of the award in timetabled sessions, which allows them to have the support and guidance they need. The components of the award are as follows ;

Skills– Students identify a skill they would like to develop, such as playing a musical instrument, cartoon drawing, photography or learning a language.

Volunteering– where students give up their time and help with people, animals or a project that they care about.

Physical – an opportunity to focus on physical wellbeing by participating in a sport or activity that requires sustained physical activity for one hour.

Expedition– as part of a team, students plan, prepare for and take part in a two day, one night expedition. As part of this preparation they undertake a practice expedition and camp in our school grounds.

Alongside these components, students have sessions on first aid, team building and campcraft.
