After the Easter holidays, your son/daughter will sit assessments in all subjects. The assessments will take place mostly during normal lessons and in their normal classrooms. For English, Maths and Science students will sit their exams in the hall so that they start to experience what more formal examinations are like. We want all students to fulfil their potential and strive to perform as well as they can in these important assessments. The results will help us to measure the progress they have made during the year.

As part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations a special celebration of Evensong Song was performed by a choir of ex-pupils under the instruction of former Director of Music, Mr Peter Smith.
Former Chaplain, Father Stephen Taylor, preached on the school, the traditions, the example set by Dr Roberts and the future.
The choir sung beautifully and the service was a real example of God’s Glory, which is truly embedded in the life of the school.
