They are really enjoying the challenges that moving to a new secondary school brings; with different subjects, moving around the school and having to take responsibility for themselves.
As we celebrate becoming a new school as a partner in the Romero Multi Academy Company, we will continue ensuring that our values are demonstrated through our learning experiences. Next week we will be giving out the first Service, Faith, Wisdom, Hope, Courage and Respect badges, earned because of the great things young people do every day in the classroom, around school and in the wider community.
If you would like to see the school in action we are holding Open Mornings on Tuesday 13th October and Friday 16th Oct from 9.30-11am. There is publicity about the events in our feeder schools where you can see how successful individuals from the school have been in moving from a Catholic primary school through secondary education to outstanding universities and apprenticeships.
Please do take the time to join us in celebrating our good work with great teachers.
A group of pupils are off to Berlin at the end of next week with staff on what will be an excellent experience for all those interested in history and modern languages.
