Preparations for September 2017 (including Transition)

Message from Mr Maurice Hall (Headteacher)

Welcome to the section of our website that gives information linked to our Preparations for September 2017. The two areas considered on this page are:

  • Planning and organisation of our site and buildings in light of the extensions' completion being delayed
  • Updated information on the work going into making sure that the transition of our new students into Years 7, 8 and 9 is successful and supportive.

We intend to update this page weekly with information. As a starting point we have attached both the Powerpoint used during the Information Evenings, the KS3 Vision Statement, and a short video showing some of the exciting things going on at school. Over the coming weeks we will also develop a Frequently Asked Questions section, a Named Contact section, and keep you informed about our Transition Booklet that is currently being constructed.

If you have questions that you want us to provide answers for (either specific to your child or more general) then please contact us on, marked Preparation for Sept 2017. Depending on the type of question we will either respond directly or add to our Frequently Asked Questions.

We will do all we can to make sure everything and everyone is ready for September.

Kind Regards

Maurice Hall
