Headteacher’s Weekly Message

Thank you to parents and carers for their support during this week’s OfSTED inspection. I am particularly grateful to all those who completed the online OfSTED survey (at very short notice) and am very pleased to say that 100% of those who completed the survey said that ‘they would recommend the School to another parent’. Your confidence in us means a lot.

Whilst we have to await the final report before sharing the OfSTED judgement(s), I will say that I was immensely proud of our students. When spoken to by any one of the four inspectors across the two days, they spoke with great confidence and pride and I would like to thank them for this.

Last night we held our annual GCSE Success Evening and it was fantastic to see so many Year 10 and 11 families. If for any reason you were unable to attend, key information can be found here:

Next week sees our follow up to the Year 6 Open Evening; we are running a series of Open events and drop-in sessions. Year 7 have a team building event on Monday (‘Circus’ skills) and I look forward to seeing Year 7 parents and carers at Tuesday’s Kitchens of the Globe. On Friday we will be hosting our annual MacMillan Coffee morning and parents and carers are welcome to join us from 10.30 am. We envisage finishing around 11.15am.
