Message from the Headteacher

07 October 2022

Dear Parents/Carers


Over the last couple of weeks, we have had several trips going on. We have had the Art workshop trip, the GCSE PE climbing trip as well as year 12 politics group attending the Conservative party conference! Yesterday and today was the Geography fieldtrip which is always very important for these pupils and their coursework. Mr Sorroll also took our chaplaincy team to St Chad’s Cathedral for a commissioning Mass and those of you who follow the chaplaincy twitter feed will no doubt have seen some lovely pictures of the team with Bishop Stephen Wright.

Next week’s PGL trip is I’m sure going to be a wonderful experience for the year 8s. For many this will be their first residential and huge thanks to all the staff attending and to those who organised this opportunity.

A reminder that Monday is a non-uniform day and we are encouraging pupils to wear green as part of Mental Health awareness.

On Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th October year 9 will be sitting their assessments. It is important that pupils are well prepared for these and can I recommend that you look at the curriculum section of the school website for more information.


 There is also a page of sample assessments here:


I will leave you with this prayer of gratitude to our Lord:

Lord, thank you for your abundant, abounding grace. Thank you that we don't have to earn a drop of the mighty river of grace that flows freely for us today. Thank you for the unexpected, unmerited favour you've showered on my life. Help me put myself in the path of your love and grace. Help me not neglect the disciplines I need to meet with you regularly and to drink from the water of life. Thank you for your rich love. Amen


Kind Regards

Mr A. Grant
