Spring Update

Monday, 22 February 2016

I hope you have had a great half term and that the students are refreshed and raring to get back into school. We’ve used the half term break to tidy up some areas of the school that needed a spruce, in particular the science labs – and hopefully that will make students more comfortable and therefore they will find it easier to concentrate and to learn. We’re going to be asking them to play their part by keeping them in a good condition, and we’ll continue working around the school site to make it as welcoming and modern as possible. Read More

End of Term Message Dec 2015

Friday, 11 December 2015

It’s been a full on week in school and, as the end of term approaches, we are all looking forward to the New Year. A student commented that I’d banned Christmas this week – not true I hasten to add! What we have asked for is that lessons remain academic and challenging until the end of term -we always want to maximise learning for students. To ensure we do all enjoy the holiday season we have decorated the school and are taking part in a Christmas Jumper Day next Friday (18th). The money raised will go to local charities providing food and support for those sleeping rough, or in need, in Brighton & Hove. Read More
