Head's Message

It seems remarkable that we are at the end of the half term. I realise that it may seem incredibly long having managed yet more home schooling on top of your own jobs but want to thank you again for all of the supportive messages to staff over the last few weeks. 

I am very proud of how the students are responding to this latest lockdown. There are lots of reasons to feel positive about the future and I am more confident than ever that together we will support the students and guide them to success. We look forward to welcoming them back as soon as we can.

Mr J Eddy
