This is an allegation that we take very seriously. We would like the family to make direct contact with us to share the details of their concerns so that we can address them appropriately.


We are an open and inclusive school and these worries have not been shared with us. Please contact the school directly to share any concerns so that we can address them appropriately.

If the thought of going back to school is making you feel a bit anxious, here are eight tips to help you cope with that first day back.

Y12 & Y 13 Start of Term Information

Year 12 Information

Term will begin on Friday 4 September 2020 with Y12 Induction Day. We will be operating a staggered arrival, with students being invited on to the school site from 09.35 at five-minute intervals according to their Tutor Groups. We will be in touch again during the next two days with details of your Tutor Group and particular time of arrival.

Students will have the opportunity to meet both their Head of Year and Form Tutor during the course of the day, as well as having a tour of the school site and a detailed briefing on the key policies and procedures in the Sixth Form, including the measures put in place to keep staff and students safe on their return to school. Students will be dismissed from 12.35, again at 5-minute intervals, to control the flow of traffic from the school site.

Y12 students will not be attending school on Monday 7 September and will instead be given further induction activities to complete from home. This is to allow other year groups to have their induction days.  Lessons will commence on Tuesday 8 September, with students being expected to arrive by 08.30, ready to start at 08.45.

Please ensure that you arrive for Y12 Induction Day attired in accordance with the Sixth Form Dress Code, a copy of which may be found in your enrolment booklet. You should also bring basic stationary with you, including lined paper and writing materials. Subject teachers will advise you what other equipment or resources may be required in your first lessons.


Y13 Information

Y13 students will be working from home on Friday 4 September 2020, completing a series of virtual induction activities, which will be set via their existing Tutor Group Google Classrooms. Term will start properly on Monday 7 September 2020 with Y13 Induction Day. Students will be invited to attend either a morning or an afternoon session, depending on which Tutor Group they are in. The details of these sessions can be seen below:

Students should access the school site via the pedestrian gates, where they will be greeted by a member of staff and directed through the car park and along the path running parallel to the field towards the Sixth Form building.

Students will then need to report directly to their designated classroom. 

During the course of the day, students will have the opportunity to meet Ms Pugh, their new Head of Year and spend time with their Form Tutor, as well as having a tour of the adjusted school site and a detailed briefing on what to expect from the coming year, including the measures put in place to keep staff and students safe on their return to school.
