Year 12 Introduction Day:


Following the Government announcement on Tuesday 14 June confirming a pause at Step 3 restrictions for 4 weeks and due the restrictions on large group gatherings under Step 3 of the road map to recovery,  in the interest of public safety we have reluctantly had to CANCEL this event. This is because restrictions advised by the Local Authority make the event impossible to run.

Thursday, 24 June 2021 *CANCELLED*

Please see the email circulated to those initially invited to this event, on 17th June from Mr Birtchnell.

During these unprecedented times, we are sorry not to be able to welcome our incoming Yr 12 cohort in person after all. 

We hope to hold induction events for students at the school at the beginning of September and will also hold an induction webinar on Wednesday 30th June at 1.30pm. (please see your email for link). Students will have the opportunity to ask questions about the Sixth Form during this.

Bridging work will be provided via the school website from Thursday 24th June and will need to be completed for the start of term in September.

Access Bridging Work Here (from 24.6.21)
