Principal's Message: 

As we officially bid farewell to our Year 11s today, many will be returning to offer their services, in the form of work experience, to support our Year 6 transition weeks over the next fortnight. I cannot praise the Year 11s enough regarding how well they conducted themselves during these exam series. They showed a great deal of maturity and commitment to their studies. We cannot underestimate how impressive this is in the current climate and context. This year group is the first year to have formal exams in two years. Well done Year 11 – you are a credit to yourselves and your families. I wish you all the very best for the future, and we look forward to you popping in occasionally to say hello and share with us your successes.

We also had our Year 8 options evening. Again, the girls showed such maturity in making their option choices. They were so thoughtful, and we could not help but be impressed in our individual meetings with them and their families and their thought process in why they made these options. In fact, one of the students had articulated on her form why she wished to take Drama. “I thought the school was not going to have drama as a GCSE subject but when I found out they were, I was so excited. Although I haven’t thought about it much I love the idea of being an actress. It would be a fun experience….” Our thorough options process was aimed to ensure that the students thought about which subjects they wish to study and what career path they may wish to start exploring.

We have a number of exciting events coming up in the next few weeks. On Thursday 7th July we have our Summer Concert and on Wednesday 13th July we have our Dance Show. It will be excellent to see you at these events as we come together once again to enjoy our students’ creative talents.
