  • Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you enjoyed a peaceful break.   I am pleased to report that students have come back to school with an excellent demeanour, attendance is good and uniform is looking smart.   

  • Snow is falling....

    It has been another busy week at Light Hall.  The mocks are nearly at a close and the Year 11 students have worked really hard.    

  • Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

    The mock exams have commenced and continue over next week.  All our Year 11s are working hard.  They are to be commended on their excellent conduct.    

  • Prize Evening Delight

    It has been a week of celebration!  Prize giving last night was a joy. We were delighted to welcome back our 2017 leavers, who achieved so well in their examinations. 

  • Seeing spots...

    Spots are the order of the day today, to support Children in Need. Well done to everyone who has accessorised their uniform in aid of this good cause. 

  • Lest We Forget

    We observed two minutes’ silence today at 11.00 am in order to remember all those who have lost their lives in conflict.  Mr Brookes has led very poignant assemblies this week, with remembrance as their theme.

  • Keep Up the Good Work

    I have had the pleasure of visiting many lessons this week and have been impressed by the engagement, hard work and dedication of our students. They are certainly tackling some challenging topics in all areas and coping well with the demands of the curriculum.


  • Our Students rise to the Challenge

    Congratulations to the winners of the House Visual Arts Competition. There were so many excellent entries, the judges had a very difficult choice. In first place, Grace M (Challenger), in second place, Imaan R and in joint third place, Sam H and Aiden B. Sareena M, Trinity K, Charlotte S, Carah M and Priya C are all highly commended for their outstanding entries. 

  • Cycle safety, sports & special students

    Personal Safety has been a key theme this week. Mr McCrainor and our neighbourhood police team have led a series of assemblies on the theme of keeping ourselves safe, not only online with very careful use of social media, smart phones and websites, but also when we are out and about on our pedal cycles, by ensuring that we always wear a helmet.

  • C is for Careers, and Cake.....

    This week, year 11 spent Wednesday looking at their possible career paths and their options after their GCSE exams this year. Careers advisers took them through key dates and deadlines and provided them with vital information about local options and useful websites.
