The autumn term has started and October is the perfect opportunity for parents, children and staff to leave the car at home and give walking to school a go. International Walk to School Month (www.livingstreets.org.uk) happens every October, with schools across the world joining forces to get walking (or scooting, cycling, running, jumping, hopping…). Walking improves physical and mental health and means children arrive at school more alert and ready to learn. Plus, by cutting down on car journeys you’ll play your part in improving air quality. Air pollution currently causes up to 900 early deaths a year in Birmingham and children are especially vulnerable. Road vehicles contribute around 80% of the total nitrogen dioxide pollution in our air and cars ‘idling’, standing still with engines running, is a big factor. Join us now!
A reminder that on Thursday 18th October, our Year 10 pupils will be part of the “Study Sensai” sessions, facilitated by our outside provider (Elevate). These run during periods 1 and 2 and will be held in the hall. Any questions, please contact Mr Hosfield.
In celebration of Black History Month we would like to remember a prominent local man who left a legacy we should all be proud of. Henry Gunter is not a particularly well-known name, but this man helped break down barriers in our city and beyond. Click to read more…

We have, for the 3rd year in a row, been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for our continued commitment and development to Physical Education, Physical Activity, School Sport and Leadership. Next year we are going for Platinum! Thank you to everyone who has assisted in helping us achieve this, as we continue to provide excellent sporting provision and leadership opportunities for pupils across the district. Well done!
