It has been brought to our attention that at least one school in our region has a significant level of absence possibly associated with an outbreak of the Norovirus.  If your son or daughter is absent through sickness please keep them at home for 48 hours after the sickness has passed.  We will talk with all our students, through tutors, to remind about personal hygiene (handwashing etc.).

Student Voice

Student Voice

Led by our elected Sixth Form Council (see below) our Student Voice is centred on the whole School Council.  This body of students, selected from every tutor group in the school, meets on a half termly basis.  Students discuss issues specifically linked to their year group.

In addition, students choose a roll on a whole school group designated to review a particular topic.  Examples include charity, community, education, behaviour, extra-curricular and rewards.  Although a new initiative, we are very excited by the development of this council which has included some highly effective training and opportunities for student voice beyond the school boundaries.

The Sixth Form Council is an elected body of students chosen by their peer group and by staff. Led by the Head Boy and Head Girl who are supported by Deputies, they run a team of ministers with a range of responsibilities that extend across the whole school.
