Year 11 pupils will be making good use of the forthcoming holiday to prepare for GCSE examinations. The Examinations Guidance and Revision booklets issued and the presentations used at the recent Year 11 information evening meeting may be accessed on our school website. All our Year 11 pupils now have free access to two PiXL apps for smartphone and tablet to help them identify their strengths and area to develop in these subjects.

I look forward to meeting parents of year 10 pupils at the Parents Consultation Evening on Monday 27 March (4.00pm to 7.00pm). This is a timely opportunity to review student progress prior to Year 10 examinations at the start of next term. Please bring your list of appointments with you to the meeting.

On Tuesday we welcome the Young Shakespeare Company to school for what promises to be a vibrant performance of Romeo and Juliet to Year 9 pupils.

Mrs Rutherford and Mrs Doyle are accompanying ten Year 11 pupils to the annual debating competition this weekend at Durham University. It provides an opportunity for our pupils to experience university life and meet pupils from other debating teams across the country. We look forward to hearing about their successes and experiences next week.

Pupils visited Leeds Beckett University recently to learn about the many roles and careers within music technology. Our pupils enjoyed using the impressive recording studios, post-production rooms and portable recording and audio analysis devices.
