  • Happy Half Term

    So the first half of Spring term has drawn to a close.   Its been a very busy half term with our students working diligently towards their exams, whether it be Year 11 GCSEs or mid year assessments.   Year 11 have had their PSHE day on setting goals and a 5 part plan for perseverance, building resilience in our young people.

  • Resilience is the key

    The theme of the week has been resilience and how to build it.

    Mr Hayfield has been holding very informative assemblies on mental health, giving helpful strategies and support structures that our students can use.   

  • Goodbye January....

    Goodbye January! And what a long month it has been.  


  • Life Ready, STEM and Careers...

    We are now at the end of our second week into the new term and despite the very soggy conditions the students are studying well.

  • Welcome Back!

    Welcome back to the start of the new Spring term.  Everyone has settled back into school very nicely and it is lovely to see all our students back after the particularly virulent bout of illness before Christmas.

  • Only one week to go....

    Only one week to go now until the end of term.   And what a busy week we have had!  Last night’s Winter Wonderland concert was magical.   The talent we have in our students is outstanding.    A big thanks to Mr Johnson for arranging such a wonderful event, we are certainly all in the festive spirit now. 


  • Countdown to Christmas...

    The Christmas trees are up and beautifully decorated.  The countdown to the festive holiday has begun.   Despite the growing excitement, our students have continued to work very hard.


  • Lest We Forget

    Welcome back!  I hope everyone has had a refreshing autumn break.  I have been impressed by the way in which everyone has settled down very quickly to hard work.  

  • Happy half term!

    It has been an extremely busy and productive half term.   Well done to our year 7 students who have settled in so well, our new staff too, have settled in very well as part of our Light Hall team.
