Primary News



Congratulations to our Foundation Stage team!

Just before the Easter holiday we invited Sally Featherstone, a very well regarded and frequently published British early years education expert, to come to visit our school and to reflect on the education which we are offering the youngest pupils in our school. It was great to have Sally in school. She spent time in and outside of classrooms, talking to children, parents, teachers, assistants and the leadership team. The full report that we have received from Sally will be summarised and shared in more detail with parents with children in PK and K. We were very pleased with the report which identified ‘considerable development and improvement in practice’ which has had a ‘good effect on the children’s attitudes to and progress in learning.’ Our professional teachers and assistants continue to work hard to provide our PK and K children with stimulating and appropriate activities which were recognised by Sally as allowing our pupils to ‘be well motivated, considerate and kind, developing good concentration and playing with purpose.’ 



Well done to Ms Corry and the Foundation Stage teachers and assistants!

Secondary News

Cal Grades and reports
Many students have received reports and Cal grades recently. Please take some time to talk through these grades with your son or daughter so they can appreciate ways of improving their performance. We will also be working in this area with your son or daughter.

Security on our campus
It is important for all students to recognise the importance of looking after valuable items in their possession during the school day. Each week we have many laptops handed into the Office and they are then returned to the owner. However we also have occasional items going missing and this causes us much concern and work to investigate the circumstances. This week a student lost her Vaio and if anyone has any information on it we would be most grateful.

IGCSE and IB Exams continue all week for Grade 10 and Grade 12
Please ensure your son or daughter check their timetables and arrive at the right exam on time.
