Over half-term the school started its £1.1 million project to replace the heating system throughout the building. This will include a new biomass boiler to replace our current oil boiler system. We were delighted to receive this funding from the Department for Education at the end of last year and will be working over the coming months to put new pipework and emitters around the school. The vast majority of the work will take place when the students are not at school but the site office and building infrastructures will remain over the next twelve months as the project is completed. This is obviously a significant amount of funding and a project that will create a more modern and efficient heating system.
The week before half-term was our bi-annual Diversity Week. The success of such events is hard to quantify but student and staff feedback throughout the week gave numerous examples of how the range of workshops had changed perceptions and misconceptions about those from different sections of society.
This week Year 11 students take part in Poetry Live, a workshop that will help to bring to life works from the GCSE English course.
Next week, we welcome Year 10 parents and carers to their Parents’ Evening. Students will be making appointments with their teachers this week to see how they have approached the first months of their GCSE courses.
