Miss Stanley and Mrs Gill will now focus on the students who will be joining us in September and from 3rd June, will start the transition visits to primary schools. Until now, Mrs Devaney has been Leader of Year 11 but these students are now into their immersion and exam schedule. 

Form tutors will continue to be the first point of contact and Mrs Newman will continue to work with the year group so consistency is maintained.

Year 8 is a vital year for students and Mrs Devaney's priorities for the year will focus on creating a positive environment so that all students may learn and achieve. During the course of Year 8 each student will be asked to make important decisions regarding her education, choices that lead to her GCSE options and it is important that these choices are well informed. The teaching and pastoral staff will continue to set challenging targets for the students but will support them as much as possible to help them achieve these targets and help inform their choices.

Attendance and punctuality in school is going to be more important than ever next year and Mrs Devaney will be working closely with Mrs Mellish, Attendance Officer, to meet with parents and students where this is a concern, to try and help remove any barriers to learning. We will, of course, continue to reward excellent attendance.

As well as the focus on Learning and Achievement, there will be several opportunities to celebrate achievements in the year through assemblies.

Parental support is important to us and we will endeavour to keep parents informed as much as possible of activities and support going on in school. All extracurricular activities and events are available on our website.

Please contact Mrs Devaney via email at or by phone on the school number.
