  • 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.   

  • Making the Most of Mindfulness

    We are now rapidly drawing to the close of our half term.  Everyone has been working very hard and this can be seen in the quality of the lessons I visit each day.

  • What Wet Weather!

    We come to the end of a very soggy week, proving that Autumn is well and truly upon us. However, our spirits have been lifted by the wonderful creations brought into school by students and staff for the MacMillan bake sale.  

  • Welcome Back!

    Welcome back! I hope everyone has had a lovely summer break.   Our students have returned looking very smart in their new house ties, ready for hard work.

  • And so to the final post of the year...

    We’ve come to the end of another exciting year.  Congratulations to Challenger on winning the house championships.Every house has achieved well.  You can see the final results later on in the Word.

    Well, I think we have covered all of the performing arts this week.  

  • Hello Sunshine!

    We have had a very enjoyable week in school.   It started with our leavers assembly on Tuesday, where we celebrated year 11s last 5 years at Light Hall.   

  • What wet weather!

    This week Year 8 and 9 have been taking part in their PSHE lesson.   They really engaged  in them and the lessons were very informative.   

  • Welcome back to our final half term

    Our final half term of this academic year has started – I just don’t know where the past year has gone.  Everyone is working really hard.
