Our vision is to be an Outstanding School; one that caters for young people of all abilities and helps them to achieve great things.

We genuinely care about all our students and work hard to create for them a positive culture for learning, that permeates throughout the whole school.

Girls Storm into Round 5

English Schools Cup: Round 5 (last 32 in England)

The girls played a fantastic game and through excellent teamwork, communication and some fantastic football the U16 girls won 6-2 against Fullbrook. They have qualified for the next round.

Goal scorers were:  Breon Grant x3, Leah Saunders x2 and Ellie Jeffkins (C) x 1.

Another outstanding game- I am very proud of you girls.

Well done!

Football Academy

The 6th Form Football Academy, which was launched in September, has got off to a good start, with our two teams currently sitting 2nd and 3rd in their leagues.

Earlier in November the first group of 18 students completed the FA Level 1 course, as well as the Emergency First Aid and Safeguarding Children certificates; the second group is due to complete the award over the coming weeks. The award will allow students to coach teams /groups with an official qualification.

Phoenix Football Club, who we are linked with, have agreed to provide coaching opportunities and two of our Football Academy students – James Upson and Matt Catmull – have been invited to join the Phoenix Under 21 Team.

Book Buzz

Our Year 7 students were very excited to receive their free books this year.

The Book Buzz scheme has been running for a few years now and is partly funded by the Book Trust charity and partly by the school.

The choice of books this year was excellent; books ranged from the “Geek Girl” series, a book by Steve Backshall, poetry, a factual book about the body and a wide variety of other stories aimed at all reading abilities.
