Emergency Closure Guidance

At this time of year, the weather is not always predictable, and bad weather can often affect the daily routine. Please refer to the updated Emergency Closure Guidance for full information. A reminder that initial contact will be via text message, then a supporting email from the School. Please ensure you keep your contact details up-to-date at this time.


I would like to thank the staff who ran The Post 16 Landscape at the Senior Girls site on Thursday, all the feedback reflects what a useful night this was. Year 11 will bring their reports home today, these need to be read and understood, so that any questions can be brought to the Year 11 Parents Evening on the 28 January and we can best prepare the boys for their Mock Exams at the end of February.

We are still looking to play our fixtures , however our home games this Saturday are not being played although we will play the away games (frost allowing). Please ensure that your son's communicate with their coaches for the latest information.

Good luck to Year 9 today for their Pantomime extravaganza.

Pantomime is a big thing in the cultural calendar of my country, you know. So subtlety's not my forte. Alan Cumming
