Key Information and Events

Year 9 students have now received their option choices. As they begin their GCSE courses, they will be offered the opportunity to take part in various workshops and visits throughout the year to help enrich their academic studies. This includes visiting Parliament and working with various academic institutes.

Students will also be given the opportunity to gain extra qualifications through PiXL Edge.

Students will work independently in their spare time to complete a range of activities to reach Level 1:Pixl Apprentice, Level 2: Pixl Graduate and Level 3: Pixl Master.

The activities will focus students on developing the following core attributes:

  • Leadership

  • Organisation

  • Resilience

  • Initiative

  • Communication.

Please encourage your son to take advantage of this great opportunity to develop skills which are essential for life and further education/ employment.



The move from KS3 to KS4 for year 9 students means that homework has even more significance than before.

Tasks are given to support and develop the learning taking place in the classroom.
