End of Term 2017

School will close on Friday 21st July 2017 and students will be allowed to leave at 12.15pm. Please note there will be a lunch service available if required. The school’s Learning Zone will be open until 2.45pm for students wishing to stay to catch up with work.

We have been liaising with the bus company regarding the scholar buses and can confirm the following:

The 849 to High Spen and the 847 to Lobley Hill will be at school for pick up at 12.15 pm

There will be NO 848 to Bensham or 846 to the Teams on this day; therefore students will be required to make their way home using alternative methods.

The new school term starts on Wednesday 6th September 2017 for students in years 8 – 11 and 13. Students joining Year 7 will start on Tuesday 5th September 2017 to get used to the procedures in their new school. Year 12 students will begin school on Thursday 7th SeptemberAll students are expected to be in school promptly by 8.30 am each day.

Students wishing to enrol onto Sixth Form courses should by now have received an appointment time for Thursday 31st August or Tuesday 5th September.  Please email Mrs McGarry HERE if you are unable to attend.

We strive to ensure our students have pride in not just the school itself but the community and its residents, our school uniform represents this and the standards we set. At all times students are to wear their uniform and respect everything it represents. The full uniform is therefore to be worn by students on the way to school, between lessons and on the way home. You can find the uniform requirements and information on how to order on the school website HERE.

We would like to remind you that next year all students will be required to carry their new school planner with them as part of their Equipment for Learning. The contribution required towards the cost of this planner is £4.00; all payments are to be made to school by Wednesday 19th July 2017.
