We hope you are all enjoying the summertime! Our thoughts turn to those students awaiting their results in a few weeks’ time. We will be on hand to support and guide all students as they move onto the next stage in their lives. I believe wholeheartedly that individual achievement can only be achieved through hard work and excellent teaching staff, all supported with high-quality pastoral care.
Come and find out for yourself! Our Main School Open Day takes place on Wednesday 2nd October. Tours of the School will run from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm. The evening event runs from 6.00 pm to 8.30 pm. There is a chance to delve into each department, meet the Heads of Departments and discover even more about the School! Tours finish just before 8.00 pm as the evening rounds off with a presentation in the School Hall. We look forward to welcoming you to this Ofsted Outstanding School.
In the meantime, two trips have returned and if you need a bit more inspiration on what to do this summer then how about Paris or Aberystwyth?
Students from Year 7 and Year 8 spent a memorable long weekend in Paris, as well as visiting the historic city of Arras and the beautiful Château de Versailles and its gardens. Sight-seeing included eating lunch by the Eiffel Tower, taking a boat tour on the River Seine, climbing the 284 steps of the Arc de Triomphe and seeing all of these again from 210 metres up the Montparnasse Tower!
Year 12 Geography fieldwork trip visited Aberystwyth in west Wales. En route, they visited Gloucester to study the area’s regeneration, then onto the Elan Valley Dams, followed by studying the course of the River Clarach. The final study was time spent looking at beach profiles and the impact of local coastal management between Borth and the spit at Ynys Las.
