Key Information and Events

The ethos for the academic year is for our students to be ‘The Best Version of Themselves’. By taking part in self-reflection, self-improvement, university led career and GCSE option workshops, and taking responsibility through our Monitor and Ambassador roles, we feel that we are ensuring we support our students to be the best version of themselves that they can be.


Students receive 2 pieces of homework once a week for their CORE subjects. This should take them approximately 20-30 minutes each to complete. For their other subjects, year 8 students receive one homework tasks set once every two lessons. This again should take approximately 20-30 minutes each to complete.

Students should be encouraged to read and use MyOn to read books for leisure in order to improve their literacy skills. In order to encourage them to read, there will be a competition within the tutor groups and with other tutor groups. The students who have read the most words will be rewarded as well as the tutor groups who has read the most.
