The weeks have literally flown by and we now find ourselves over halfway through the first summer half term.

There is much to celebrate over the past few weeks – one of our Year 13 students has successfully gained a scholarship to study in the USA and one of our ex 6th Form students has recently won a prestigious national STEM award from GlaxoSmithKline for the research she is doing at university.

The Sports Presentation Evening was a wonderful event at Hurlston Hall with many individual and team achievements celebrated in front of a large audience of parents. Thank you to Tom Pearce for giving up his valuable time to be our guest speaker – hopefully we will be seeing Tom play for Leeds in the Premier League next year!

Can I thank parents and carers for their continued support in terms of our schools basic expectations with regard to uniform, behaviour, punctuality, etc. We will be clarifying schools expectations around uniform, jewellery, phones (and earphones), etc for September in the coming weeks to give families plenty of time to prepare your children for the start of the new academic year.

Public Exams start on Monday and tanoy announcements will be restricted so please avoid dropping off items at Reception for students e.g. PE kits and Food Tech ingredients. We will only be able to contact individuals in emergencies.

Just a polite request to parents who drop their children off early to school – please could you ask you children to make their way to the main dining room if they arrive prior to 8.20am – they have been given this message already in school.

Revision sessions for Year 11 and Year 13 are ongoing – please encourage your child to attend whenever possible to help secure the best outcomes possible this summer.

Thank you for your continued support.
