COVID-19 Lockdown

Following the Government announcement, please note that our school is now closed to all pupils except vulnerable pupils and children of Key Workers.  All parents/carers have been sent an email with details on how you can access our Key Worker care.

Throughout Year 7 and 8 all pupils are expected to complete a soft skills passport called ‘Introducing.’

This initiative helps our pupils develop in to confident, well-rounded and thoughtful members of the college and wider community. During the programme, pupils will develop a range of skills and undertake a wide variety of experiences.

Each letter of Introducing represents a new skill or experience for our pupils.

Global citizen

acceptance - tolerance - respect – equality. Demonstrate through your schoolwork or extra-curricular activities, that you have a sense of equality for everyone in the world regardless of race, religion or creed

Setting challenges outside of the classroom is an integral part of the ‘Introducing’ process. Our aim is to push pupils out of their comfort zone and encourage them to try new things. Importantly, the criteria of the ‘Introducing’ programme is achievable for all pupils regardless of academic ability.

By the end of Year 8 every child should have gathered the evidence they require to graduate from the programme and gain their ‘Introducing Passport’.

We ask for your support and encouragement and look forward to celebrating your child’s achievements in the first two years of their secondary school journey.
