Mrs Mckenna Head of Year 11
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Head of Year for Year 11. I am very excited to be given the opportunity to work with such a key year group and to helping every student to achieve beyond their potential. It is more important than ever, especially with the time missed in Years 9 and 10, that students are on-track to achieve what they deserve and leave with the grades and skills they need to in order to move on to their next step in their education or work. We have a range of interventions available for Year 11, it is crucial that your child takes full advantage of the additional intervention and support which they will receive as a Year 11 student. Your support as parents and carers will also be vital in ensuring that your child is given the best possible chance in fulfilling their potential. I am looking forward to a positive and successful year!
Year 11 Intervention trip to Winmarleigh Hall (PGL Revision Camp)
All Year 11 students have been given the opportunity to participate in a Maths & English revision weekend at Winmarleigh Hall. The trip will see pupil depart on Friday 21st October at 3:15pm and return on Sunday 24th October at approximately 6:30pm. This is an excellent opportunity to boost their knowledge and also enjoy a programme of activities put together by the staff at Winmarleigh Hall.
School have heavily subsidised this trip and as a result we are able to offer it to pupils at a cost of £60. This covers all transport, accommodation, meals and activities.
