    School Show 2018 - Beauty and the Beast

    Jan 2018 - School Show 2018 - Beauty and the Beast

    Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast. The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

    Partial Opening Arrangements (11/12/2017)

    Dec 2017 - Partial Opening Arrangements (11/12/2017)

    Many thanks for your understanding of our partial opening arrangements today.

    We were faced with a significant staff shortage issue early this morning (staff travel from Staffs, Cheshire, Notts and north Derbyshire). We knew we had sufficient staffing for most, but not all lessons and so had to act accordingly. Rather than close the whole school we chose to request Yr11 (who had just sat 3 weeks of Mock exams) and Yr12-13 (who have Mock exams in January) to stay at home and use the time for self-supported study/catch up.

    Celebrating and Explaining our Outcomes

    Nov 2017 - Celebrating and Explaining our Outcomes

    We are rightly very proud of the achievements of our students this summer, and thought this would be a good time to explain a little bit more about those outcomes, and also remind you and us about some of our other successes, the ones that don’t always make the headlines in the local and national press.
