Please don’t be disappointed if you didn’t see your name in the praise bulletin this week. Carry on working hard and your teachers will nominate you. Also, if there are more than one of you in your class with the same name, and you’re not sure if the teacher is referring to you, just send an email to ask.

Alongside your academic work, we’d really like to know what else you’ve been doing and how you’re staying positive, so please stay in touch with your form tutors and teachers and send us an email to let us know how you’re getting on. If any parents/carers would like to nominate their child/ward for the praise bulletin, please could you send an email to

Also, don’t forget the photography competition Ms Earle is running for all of us! Details were in the last Headteacher Bulletin and are on the school website here: /latestnews/headteachers-bulletin-friday-8-january-2021.

I hope that you have a safe and happy week, and keep up the fantastic work!

Kind regards,
Mrs Jones
