June 2022

Dear parents and carers,

I trust you and your family are well and have been enjoying the warm weather. I am writing to you with a number of important updates in particular with regard to key dates for the remainder of the term and for next academic year. 

Congratulations to Year 11 and Year 13

We are now reaching the end of the overwhelming majority of assessments for GCSE, A Level, Vocational and BTEC awards.  Students have conducted themselves exceptionally well and are a real credit to themselves, and the school. Our students have been magnificent in coping with the demands of the assessments and we look forward to the results being released in August (see below for dates).

Extended leave

Leave of absence will only be granted in exceptional circumstances, and can only be authorised by the headteacher. Exceptional circumstances are defined as ‘one-off’ occasions where a request for leave of absence is unavoidable. This does not cover a family holiday. If a student is taken out of school during term time for an extended period without permission, the child may be taken off roll. If there are exceptional circumstances, please send a letter requesting leave to the headteacher and submit this no later than two weeks prior to the start of the leave. In order to reach an informed decision, it is important to include as much detail as possible to explain why exceptional circumstances apply. Thank you for your support with this. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us through main school reception as usual.

Term Dates 2022-23 – reminder

As we move towards the end of this academic year, we are making preparations for September and beyond. Our new Year 7 students will be visiting us in July as part of their induction programme as well as prospective students in Year 12. With this in mind, I would like to remind you of the term dates for the new academic year which are listed below and include the two week half term break in the autumn.

Autumn Term

Spring Term

Summer Term

Water Bottles

I would like to remind parents that students are advised to bring in their own water bottles that can be filled up at the various water fountains around the school. In addition, we expect students to uphold our high standards in the wearing of uniform and that that no other jacket or top can be worn as an alternative to the school blazer.


Finally, congratulations to Daniel Lin in Year 9, Daniel Wong in Year 7, and Yusuf Islam, Abida Suraiya and Myra Jahan all in Year 8 who are currently dominating the top of the rewards points charts. You are all a credit to the school. Keep up the good work!

As always, thank you for your continued support. Please do get in touch if there is any aspect of our provision that you would like to discuss.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Woods
