Year 9 Students of the Week

This week’s students of the week are my entire year group.

Thank you year 9 for being amazing students and allowing me to support you throughout the last year and a half. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all and it has been a joy to come into work every morning to see you all. I will truly miss each and every one of you.

I wish you all the success and know you will all go on to do amazing things.

From Miss Herrington.

Ofsted Visit


The Chief Inspector of the Belgian equivalent of Ofsted visited us this week, to see how his UK counterparts carry out their role. Lieven Viaene was the guest of Bradley Simmons, the Regional Director for the South West Ofsted, and Mrs Veal.

Mrs Veal said: “Our staff and students were extremely proud to host this visit and felt privileged to have been selected. It was incredibly successful and could not have been more positive. Our students were articulate, polite and enthusiastic. We were able to show them and talk to them about how we manage challenges and, despite them, deliver a good provision with great teaching and learning – whilst being caring and supportive.”
