Snapshot News:

Year 9 Drama

Students have been working really hard on devising skills this term. Miss Hallybone is very pleased with their hard work and progress.

Anti Bullying and Mental Health Awareness

This week in school we have been raising awareness of bullying and mental health with a series of activities for students, including tutor time activities, special assemblies and ensuring all our students know who they can talk to if they experience these issues.


Year 9 students Mollie and Denisa attended an event at Northampton Town FC to show support.


Wristbands were worn worn to support this initiative and students from the well-being team gave chocolate bars to all staff as a thank you.


Students have also been encouraged to show kindness to each other, no matter how small the gesture.
