Parent Update 18th June 2020

18th June 2020

Dear Parent,


Here's an update for this week.


It’s been lovely to see year 10 and 12 students this week as they have started to come in for some face-to-support to supplement remote education. Well over four-fifths of year 10 and virtually all year 12s have come in, which has been great. We know there are others from those year groups who are unable to come in for various reasons; we missed you and are thinking of you! We move into phase 3 next week, with subject specific sessions taking place. We will communicate with year 10 and 12 parents about that separately.


Free School Meal Entitlement

If your circumstances have changed during this period, you may now be eligible for free school meals, go to: to check your eligibility. If you are eligible, it means that you will receive free school meals at some point on our return. However, if you let our inclusion officer Emma Wright know ( that you have registered, she will work to get you on the national voucher scheme straight away, and thanks to the great work of England footballer Marcus Rashford, you will be eligible for the summer holidays too!


Creating a hopeful summer

CAFOD have created a national assembly which has been published today on YouTube. Why not join other students from around the country who want to feel more hopeful this summer:  


Year 11 Celebration Video

It's our annual year 11 celebration assembly today, and this has happened remotely. It's now tradition for our staff to make a video to celebrate the five years, and to remind them that we're still here for them into sixth form next year. Check out the video made by Miss Bradley, our head of year 11, (with outtakes!) at:


God Bless
