Parent and Carer Letter – Ramadan and Exams

Some of our students will shortly be following the religious observance of Ramadan, which this year falls at the same time as the GCSE and A Level examination season.

Parent and Carer Letter – Behaviour Consultation

We are rightly proud of our reputation for good conduct and behaviour, a view supported by Ofsted and the parent and carer feedback on ParentView. However, not all children will get it right every time, and when students do get it wrong we aim to work with all parties to put things right. No matter how good something is we should always look to make it even better; with that in mind we would like your views on some changes we are considering.
