Update from Year 9

It has been a superb start to the year for Year 9 students as they have begun their GCSEs. Staff around the school have commented on the maturity of students and how hardworking they have been so far. It has been really impressive to hear and see pupils’ work in subjects that they are experiencing for the first time, such as Photography, Textiles, Art, Business Studies, as well as their efforts in English, Maths, Science and RE.
