Another popular question has been about Work Experience, and I am very pleased to announce that we are planning a week of Work Experience for all Year 10 students later this year. Mr Bevin will be e-mailing all parents in the next few weeks to start to collate a list of possible Work Experience placements for our Year 10 students.
Please remember that the school is closed for students on Monday 25th September, with teachers involved in a wide variety of In-Service Training, known in the UK as INSET.
