Year 10 will be off timetable all day to take part in a series of PSHE activities. This will include:
- “Trust me” a theatre production involving Loudmouth Theatre Company, which addresses the following areas: sexual health, consent, contraception, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, pornography.
- Follow-up workshop to “Trust me” (in single-sex groups)
- Workshop on female genital mutilation for girls
- Workshop on joint enterprise for boys
- Workshop on knife crime
- Careers workshop. Pupils will be introduced to the “Grofar” careers software and then write a careers action plan for the next 12 months. They will also look at online log-books in preparation for their work experience placements.
On Wednesday 19th June at approximately 3.45pm a pupil was approached by an adult male near Braceby Road and physically assaulted from behind along with racist verbal abuse. The male is described as white, mid 40s, large build, short dark hair and beard plus distinctive tattoos on both arms.
As always please remind your child to be extra vigilant on their journey to and from school so that they are aware of what is going on around them.
Subject and Consent forms MUST be returned to school or via ParentPay by Friday 14th June to secure a place. Spare letters have been given out and are available from the school’s main office. We would like all of our year 10 pupils to take up this valuable opportunity to experience three different post 16 subjects. This will help guide them with their decisions regarding study after year 11.

When you finish your exams this summer, we don’t want that to be the last time you’re in touch with us. A ‘pupil alumni’ is where we keep in touch with our leavers and their career progressions. We have a growing network of relateable role models with pupils that want to keep in touch and who would like to support the school. Ex-pupils can really make a difference to transform younger pupils’ confidence, motivation, skills and understanding of their future pathways. We may invite you to activities such as the Careers Fair, Careers Insight Talks and activities, Year 9 and 11 Options talks, Practice Interviews, offering work experience, mentoring or volunteering in other aspects of school life.
The benefits to you include; Staying connected, Support could lead to an additional reference, Evidence for your CV, Helps with university personal statements, but most of all the satisfaction of helping to inspire others.
