  • 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.   

  • 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.   

  • Tremendous talent...

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